Charity employee wins ‘Ancillary Worker Award’ at care awards

REPRESENTATIVES from care homes across the east of the country attended ‘The Great British Care Awards’ – East of England care awards 2022, at the MK Dons stadium in Milton Keynes.

Much to the delight of everyone at Edensor Care Home, Ewa Ruskowiak who was nominated for a Great British Care Award, beat eleven other nominees in her category, to win the  ‘Ancillary Worker Award’.

The ‘Ancillary Worker Award’ is awarded to someone who offers an excellent, person-centred service to clients and demonstrates dignity and respect through ancillary services and Ewa’s win allows her to attend the National Finals, on 17 March 2023 at the International Convention Centre, in Birmingham.

Ewa Ruskowiak, a Domestic at Edensor Care Centre, said:

“I felt so happy, as I could see that people believed in me, and I have never had that recognition before. I felt very special.”

Members of the domestic team at Edensor added:

‘Eva is a beautiful person through and through’

‘She treats every single resident as if they are family.’

‘She uses her magic fairy dust to bring everything to life.’

‘She is one in a million and we are so very proud of her.’

Lindsey Milliken, Deputy Manager, of Edensor Care Centre, said:

“Ewa’s compassionate care delivery over fifteen years definitely requires recognition. She is kind, caring and compassionate to all our residents and is in the true sense, an unsung hero. Although, as a domestic, she does not deliver hands-on care, she proves to many that ancillary staff can make a real difference to residents’ lives.”

Ewa is not only popular with the Edensor team but also with the residents and they were delighted to hear about her award win.

Susan Thiel, an Edensor resident who lives with dementia, said of Ewa:

“She makes me feel very warm and happy inside.”
