Pictured: Pat Davis, Care Worker at Seagrave Court
Celebrations are in full swing at Seagrave Court in Nottingham as Care Worker Pat Davis was awarded Carer of the Year in BBC Radio Nottingham’s Make a Difference Awards.
Pat, who has worked at the Housing 21 Extra Care Scheme for 18 years, was nominated by the daughter of one of the residents, who noticed that her mother’s eyes would light up when Pat entered the room.
Pat was on holiday at the time of the ceremony so Billie Fryer, Scheme Manager at Seagrave Court and Sian who nominated Pat, represented her.
Speaking about her award, Pat said: “I am extremely honoured to receive this award. I was completely shocked when my manager Billie Fryer informed me that I had been nominated.
I love being a Care Worker at Seagrave Court. My role is to look after and support the residents and to help them live as independently as possible and I really appreciate being recognised for the work that I do.
The team at Seagrave Court are brilliant, we all deserve this award.”
