Redditch Care Assistant Awarded for ‘Kindness in Care’ at Glamourous Awards Ceremony

Caroline Paul, a Care Assistant at Millcroft care home in Redditch, has been named the winner of the ‘Kindness in Care Award’ in the Ideal Care Awards.

The Ideal Care Awards seek to recognise the hard-work and dedication demonstrated by Ideal Carehomes’ team members across all 36 of the provider’s care homes.

With over 1000 nominations submitted this year, the awards had seven categories ranging from Care Team Member of the Year to the Home of the Year Award.

There is also a special category created with residents in mind, called the Resident Outstanding Contribution Award. This award gives credit to those residents who are the life and soul of their homes, joining in with activities and making the most of every day.

Caroline was named the Kindness in Care Award winner by the Ideal Care Awards judges for ‘fostering a culture that actively encourages simple kindness and her commitment to kind care, creating bonds, cultivating friendships and building positive relationships in the home, bringing joy to the ordinary moments in each day and enriching the lives of residents.’

Caroline’s win was announced at a glitzy ‘dress to impress’ awards ceremony on 17th April 2024, held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in the East Midlands and hosted by celebrity guest, Shaun Williamson.

Caroline said, ‘I am honoured to receive this award and would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone involved. Special thanks go to Lyndsay Sard, our Home Manager, whose encouragement has been instrumental in my success.’

Lyndsay added, ‘I really couldn’t be prouder Caroline for winning this award, as it means so much to her and the team at Millcroft. Caroline’s recognition in the Kindness in Care award stands for what we aim to deliver every day, and it is a true reflection of her hard work and dedication. Well done Caroline!’
