In line for a top award

AN INSPIRATIONAL leader at a town care home has been shortlisted for West Midlands’ regional finals of the Great British Care Awards.

Val Murphy from Heathlands Residential Care Home in Station Road is in the running for the Care Home Worker Award when she attends the regional finals of the prestigious awards next month.

The accolade celebrates outstanding carers who treat residents with the upmost kindness, dignity and respect.

Val, who has worked at Heathlands for more than five years, said: “I genuinely love my job and everyone who works at Heathlands is part of our fantastic team, so I didn’t think I would be individually recognised this way – we all deserve to be shortlisted, but I am so pleased though and I hope to make everyone proud.”

“I do it all for the residents, I always want them to feel wanted, loved and feel as independent as they possibly can feel. I don’t look at them as being any different to me, we are all one big family and it is so special to be a part of it,” she added.

Home manager Netty Matthews said: “She cares for residents as if they were members of her family and does all that she can to boost their wellbeing.”
