Carebase Wins Care Employer of the Year for the Second Time

Theresa Cavalla, a Lifestyle Co-ordinator and carer from Chingford, has won a Heart of Gold Award at a ceremony at 1 Sewardstone Close care home in Waltham Abbey yesterday, Monday November 21st. Theresa has worked at the care home since 2011.

The Awards seek to recognise employees for their dedication and commitment in providing high quality care and compassion to all the home’s residents.

Marie Goodwin, Manager of 1 Sewardstone Close said: “Theresa always goes that extra mile to support our residents.  Her positivity and energy is inspiring and she is a pillar of support for our residents and staff team at the home – it really is no surprise to me that she has been awarded this year’s Heart of Gold Ambassador.  Many congratulations Theresa!”

Theresa was presented with a Tiffany necklace to commemorate her success by Rahim Dhanani, Executive Director of Enable Care, the company that owns 1 Sewardstone Close.

Nominations for the award came from residents and their relatives, co-workers, social workers and local health professionals. Theresa was chosen from the list of nominations by a panel of previous Heart of Gold award winners from all the other homes in the group.

Theresa said: “I am delighted to be awarded this year’s Heart of Gold Ambassador.  I can’t believe I have won this, as all my colleagues have true hearts of gold.  I really love my job at here – thank you to all of the residents and staff team for nominating me.”

Altogether there were 30 nominees for the award at 1 Sewardstone Close and all nominees received a Heart of Gold lapel pin.
