Hallmark Care Homes scoop four titles at the Wales Care Awards
A Registered Nurse at Greenhill Manor, our care home in Merthyr Tydfil, recently scooped a gold award at the prestigious Wales Care Awards.
Lisa Hallisey was presented the ‘Excellence in Learning Disability and Mental Health Services’ title at the ceremony held at City Hall Cardiff.
The awards, first established in 2003 by Care Forum Wales, seek to reward the champions in the sector and raise public awareness of the vital contribution made by the social care workforce.
Lisa said: “I am so chuffed to be put forward by both the team and residents at Greenhill Manor.
“It was an amazing feeling and experience, it was a personal win for myself, but also a win for the whole Pennylane community.
“I thought my heart was going to come out of my chest when they announced that I had won.”
Noteworthy employees; Tehlia Jones, Joseph Maund and Cheryl Wanklyn were also recognised at this year’s finals for their outstanding care.
Tehlia Jones and Joseph Maund from Greenhill Manor were awarded silver for the ‘Excellence in Catering’ and ‘Excellence in Palliative and End of Life Care’ categories. Meanwhile, Operations Director Cheryl Wanklyn from our Central Support office was awarded Bronze for the ‘Outstanding Service’ category.
A panel of judges interviewed Lisa, Joseph, Tehlia and Cheryl earlier this year along with two other entrants from each category before coming to their decision.
Entrants were judged on their passion for making a difference, their practices in promoting dignity, respect and independence and their skills and knowledge relevant to the category.
