Sue wins award
A CARE worker who helps people to cope in their own homes has won an award for her service.
Sue Gilmour, who works for Staple Hill-based Elite Home Care, won the Care Worker of the Year prize at the Care & Support West 2018 awards.
Sue was nominated by the service users she cares for in Downend, Staple Hill, Kingswood, Hanham and Frenchay.
Elite was also nominated in the Team of the Year category at the awards, which are organised by the region’s representative body for organisations and individuals involved in the social care, support and health sectors.
The evening was attended by over 400 people, with celebrity host Rudolph Walker, best known for playing Patrick Trueman in EastEnders.
An Elite spokesperson said: “We feel so proud, especially as it’s the third time Elite has won a Care Worker of the Year award.
“All our care workers work so hard making sure our service users are well cared for and are safe, enabling them to remain in their own homes.”
