A Galway woman was honoured for the care she gives to local older people as part of Home Instead Senior Care’s CAREGiver of the Year Awards in Dublin.
Pamela Griffin, from Spiddal in Co Galway, was selected as regional winner for Connaught at the award ceremony, which took place at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin on Saturday May 18.
“Pamela exhibits Home Instead’s core values in everything she does – for her, caring is a true vocation. We are so proud to see her hard work and dedication recognised through this award,” said Suzanne Ryan, General Manager of Home Instead Senior Care Galway.
Pamela received the award for the consistently high quality of senior care services she delivers to local communities in Galway. She has become a “much-loved and deeply valued CAREGiver at Home Instead Galway”, her colleagues said.
Before inviting Pamela to the stage to collect her award, Home Instead Brand Ambassador and former broadcaster Thelma Mansfield described the positive feedback she receives from local health professionals, clients and colleagues.
“She is respected and admired by all of her colleagues; her team describes her as a ‘wonderful ambassador’ for Home Instead, due to the dedication, professionalism and commitment that she shows,” said Thelma Mansfield.
Home Instead Senior Care is Ireland’s largest provider of private home care services and is also an approved care provider for the HSE.
“These awards give us the opportunity to recognise the tireless work that our 4,000-strong team of CAREGivers deliver to clients all over the country, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” said Shane Jennings, Director of Franchise Operations at Home Instead Senior Care.
“It is only through their hard work and dedication that we can honour our mission, which is to enhance the lives of older people and their families,” said Shane Jennings.
