Jeanette Punter, who works at Devonshire Court in Oadby, has been named as a finalist in the Great British Care Awards 2018 East Midlands.

The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional award events in England, celebrating excellence across the care sector.

Jeanette, who is a Shift Leader at the Home, was recognised in the Putting People First category of the awards for her extraordinary dedication to residents at Devonshire Court where she has been working for eighteen months.

Jeanette said: “I feel humbled to have had my work recognised in this way. I love my job and consider it to be a privilege to care for our wonderful residents.”    

Home Manager, Juliet O’Connor, said: “We’re so thrilled for Jeanette as this award is so well deserved. You couldn’t find anyone more dedicated to our residents. They are central to everything that she does. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for them and it’s not unusual for her to come in on her day off. Everyone at our Home is so proud of her.”
