Richard Traill, Dementia Carer at Managing Care, Putney, has won the prestigious Dignity in Care Award at this year’s Great London Care Awards.

The Great London Care Awards, supported by the Department of Health, are part of the Great British Care Awards, a series of regional and national awards which celebrate excellence in social care and pay tribute to those who work in the sector throughout England.

Esther Pfeiffer, Director of Managing Care said:
“Richard is a wonderful carer and we are very proud of his achievements, he demonstrates clear empathy to all his clients and provides a dignified and personalised service. Richard thoroughly deserves this recognition and now we will all keep our fingers crossed and wish him lots of luck for the national finals in London.”

In awarding the best Dignity accolade, the panel of judges was particularly impressed with Richard Traills experience, commenting:
“Richard’s abilities shone through and demonstrated fantastic interpersonal skills and beyond that he showed insight and understanding of the wider social issues around dignity.”

Richard Traill, Dementia Carer at Managing Care said:
“It is fantastic to receive this award, but the simple fact is that I just love being a carer. In my view, caring for someone else involves being sensitive to their needs, as well as, being aware of their trust and responsibility that they have taken on. I have spent many hours sitting beside client, singing along with him to his favourite records and seeing in the glint in his eyes the joy that a lifetime of memories can bring.”

Managing Care, which is based in Putney, was presented with the award by BBC’s Debra Stephenson at a glittering ceremony held at The Brewery, London on Saturday 22nd October 2011. As a regional winner, Managing Care now qualifies for the national finals which will take place in 2012 in London.

Kim van Dongen, Director of Managing Care, said:
“These awards recognise and pay tribute to the efforts and dedication of all those who work tirelessly to ensure that so many people are able to continue to live independent lives. The people of Putney are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated people, like our staff at Managing Care, caring for the vulnerable and elderly members of their communities.”
