Bluebird Care Richmond & Twickenham employee, Virginie Kaninda, was awarded Carer of the Year at the Great London Care Awards on Saturday 30th January 2016.

We are delighted to announce that our very own Virginie, who has been with us for over two years, was awarded the prestigious Carer of the Year award. She is exceptional. She has recently won praise from the local CCG for her representation on their pressure ulcer prevention project. Virginie is the sole care assistant involved with the project and advises the district nurse team on the social care aspects of pressure ulcer prevention.

The Great London Care Awards were held on Saturday 30th January at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London. Unfortunately Virginie was unable to attend, but we took her out for a well-deserved meal to celebrate her oustanding achievement.

The Great London Care Awards are part of the Great British Care Awards which celebrate excellence across the social care sector.

Another employee, Chantal Milbourne, was a finalist as Dementia Carer of the Year for the South East of England.

Well done Virginie and Chantal!
