The Home Care Worker Award

Jacqueline Curry – Westminster Homecare Ltd
Jacqueline is a support worker for a Branch of Westminster Homecare Ltd providing support to adults and young people with Learning Disability, Mental Ill Health and Drug/Alcohol Addiction. In addition if the supported person is a parent they can also be supported in that parenting role.
Jacqueline is very hard working and very committed to supporting individuals to reach their fullest potential. This enables that individual to be as independent as possible and increases self worth and confidence in their own abilities. Jacqueline ensures that those she supports are always fully involved in decision making and will go out of her way to ensure that others fully involve them too. The respect for individuals demonstrated by Jacqueline in her dedication towards supporting them to achieve goals, often putting their needs before her own commitments and takes on extra work to make sure they do not miss out on any opportunities to progress.
Other team members describe Jacqueline as an inspiration, a clear example of what can be achieved with the right ethics and attitudes. This is not restricted to those she supports. Jacqueline is just as supportive to her team manager and co-workers. Jacqueline is always ready to share thoughts and experiences with other support workers and at monthly team meetings, even where she does not directly support particular individuals, such is her dedication and commitment to ensuring the highest quality of support.
Although Jacqueline has only been working with us for 18 months she has been very keen on developing her skills and gaining an understanding of some of the more complex support tasks. This has included undertaking training and awareness courses across a wide range of subjects including behavior intervention training for those subject to some of the more challenging issues and is aimed at promoting positive behaviors.

We would like to express our gratitude and thanks for a wonderful team of people who did a fantastic job in very difficult circumstances caring for my late father…
I am writing to say thank you for the care your staff took of my mum in recent years. She enjoyed her visits from all of the staff and always told me how lovely they were. She enjoyed their company as much as appreciated the many tasks they did for her.
There were several occasions when members of the team went beyond the call of duty which, as I don’t live locally, I was very grateful for…stayed with mum when doctors sent an emergency ambulance to take her to hospital…sadly mum was never to return home, passing away in November.
I would be grateful if you would pass my thanks on to the relevant staff and if my mum could add her thanks to mine I know she would do so.
