Venturi Health Care Group recognise the importance of celebrating excellence within care, we want to ensure the extraordinary lengths our staff team go to within each of our homes is acknowledged and rewarded.

As such, the company has recently rolled out a new initiative, the “Annual Care Awards” which recognises individuals who go to extraordinary lengths to deliver our Care Values, ensuring Residents receive responsive, nurturing care from committed genuine individuals. The Care Awards are inclusive and celebrate the hard work of employees across all departments within our service.

Residents, staff and visitors of Byron Court Care Home have been nominating those who they believe should be awarded the 2018 Care Award and the winner was Helen – Housekeeping Supervisor.

Helen, received a number of lovely comments from those who nominated her,

“I nominate Helen as she always shows how much she cares for the residents.  Nothing is too much trouble, she can put her hand to any task whether it be care, domestic, kitchen or laundry.  Helen has worked as a carer on the night shift a few times and has displayed how she has great empathy and understanding for our residents.  Helen will always help out in any department.”

“Helen is a devoted worker, no matter what position she may be doing on that day, she is always willing.  Helen, more than deserves the award.”

“In my opinion I think Helen Patterson is an outstanding member of the team.  She goes above and beyond for everyone, staff, residents and relatives.  There is nothing that Helen can’t and won’t do.  Helen speaks to the residents and staff with understanding and compassion and she goes out of her way to help anyone.”


Ian Randles, Director of Nursing Services said:

“Helen is a committed, loyal and hardworking team member, she is willing to support her team and Residents in anyway possible and this award is truly deserved. Congratulations to Helen! I am already looking forward to the next awards ceremony as I believe this is an excellent way to recognise those that go the extra mile “
