A hat trick of Hafod finalists are shortlisted for Wales Care Awards

Not just one but three Hafod colleagues have been shortlisted as finalists in this year’s Wales Care Awards also known as the Oscars of the care sector.

Congratulations to Geraint Morgan, Reginald Milton Inness and Ruth Smithers who were nominated by their colleagues for the fantastic work they do in their respective roles and for Making Lives Better.

The annual awards event is run by Care Forum Wales to showcase best practice across the care sector. Nominations are invited from anyone in the care industry who can put forward an individual or team for a range of award categories.

Geraint is the manger at our Ty Penrhos Care Home in Caerphilly and has been shortlisted in the Excellence in Leadership and Management category, a testament to Geraint’s kind nature who encourages and supports his staff and also ensures high standards of care are maintained for residents. Nominating Geraint for the award, Karen Heard, clinical nurse manager, described him as “a role model to colleagues who has improved the team spirit and quality of care provision throughout the home”.

In the running for the Excellence in Catering Award is Reg, chef at our Picton Court Care Home in Porthcawl. Reg has been serving-up delicious meals inspired from across the world to residents at Picton Court for the last decade. His culinary creativity and crafting skills are second to none matching his passion for caring.

Clinical lead nurse assessor, Ruth, who is based at our Brocastle Manor Care Home in Bridgend has been nominated for the Independent Sector Nurse of the Year Award. Ruth’s passion and dedication for client care as well maintaining best practice is clear to see in her daily work – so much so that one relative was reduced to tears of joy when they witnessed Ruth’s kindness and compassion towards their mother. Ruth also ensures her team are well supported to carry out their roles.

This year’s awards will take place on Friday 19th October at Cardiff’s City Hall – good luck to our Team Hafod finalists, we’re very proud of you all!
