We're delighted that support worker Suzanne Warnes has won the Dementia Carer Award at the national finals of the Great British Care Awards.
Suzanne qualified for the national finals by winning at the East of England regional finals in November, and last week competed against finalists from across the UK to be selected national champion in her category.
Suzanne and colleagues attended the prestigious awards ceremony at Birmingham’s ICC on Friday 16th March where she was taken completely by surprise when presenter Jeremy Vine announced her as the winner.
The GB Care Awards team said: “Suzanne shows a great understanding of how to build a connection with a person with dementia. Through her care people living with dementia are enabled to live their lives to the full and take charge of their future. Suzanne is also inspiring the next generation of carers and supporting the people affected by dementia in the community.”
