Care Assistant Christine is National Finalist at Bluebird Care Awards
Congratulations to Bluebird Care South Tyneside care assistant Christine Graham, who has been announced as a national finalist in the Bluebird Care Awards.
Christine was nominated by Bluebird Care South Tyneside’s director David Haswell, beating carers from across the region to win the regional award and national nomination.
Christine specialises in the care of customers with dementia, and received her nomination due to her dedication to those she cares for. It is a role that is so important in mitigating loneliness in older people today and Christine handles any challenges encountered with a calm and cheery demeanour. She is a positive role model with an infectious personality, and will always go above and beyond for her customers. Most recently, Christine organised a birthday party for a Bluebird Care customer, helping them reconnect with their neighbours and provide an enjoyable day for all.
Her win means she will represent the North of England region at the national final at Fortnum and Mason, London, on September 6, where national winners in each category will be decided by an independent panel of judges made up from media, the charity sector and the United Kingdom Homecare Association.
The awards ceremony recognises the outstanding contribution that carers, registered managers and team members make in improving the lives of Bluebird Care customers.
