A senior team member at specialist Home Care Warrington-based Nightingales has been selected as a finalist in the Great North West Care Awards 2011.
Janet Scarisbrick, who works as a care co-ordinator at Nightingales, has been selected as one of five finalists in The Home Coordinator Award category. Janet attended a judging day earlier this year at the Barceló Imperial Hotel in Blackpool where she was interviewed by a panel of judges and will now attend the regional awards night on Friday, October 8.
The awards, now in their third year, are designed to promote social care and the importance of supporting old and vulnerable people in society. At the same time the event serves to celebrate the successes of those individuals, teams and businesses which work so hard to make a positive impact in communities across the UK.
Janet said: “I was honoured to have been selected in the first place and now to have made it through to the final five is just amazing. I’m really looking forward to the awards ceremony – it will be a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded people and share ideas.”
Janet will join the other North West finalists for a champagne reception at Blackpool Tower this Saturday night. Guests will then enjoy a gourmet dinner before Coronation Street actress Sally Lindsay takes to the stage to present the evening’s winners with their awards.
Neil Fitzpatrick, business development and operations manager at Nightingales, added: “I am delighted for Janet that she has been shortlisted for this award, having dedicated her life to caring for others.”
