We are very excited to announce that we have been selected as this year’s Home Healthcare Service of the Year at the London Prestige Awards!
Each year, both readers and contributors to the Corporate LiveWire and LTG publications put forward companies, products, services and individuals who they feel are deserving of recognition. Nominees are asked to submit supporting information for their chosen category and a panel of judges ultimately select a winner in each sector.
The publications say the awards “recognise businesses from the largest City in England that provide a personal approach towards their customers to maintain a high-quality level of service and experience.
“Winners will be chosen on marketing and branding, business growth methods, customer experience, and approach to new ideas.”
Commenting on the award, Avant Managing Director Sally Graham said: “Avant are really proud to receive this award as Home Healthcare Service of the Year.
“Our team continually strive to provide great person-centred support and care to all their customers and are over the moon to receive this award.
“Thank you to the London Prestige Awards for recognising us.”
Along with our company award, Avant care worker Olga Mcrae is a finalist for the Home Carer Award at the Great British Care Awards. She has been a dedicated member of the Avant care team for over five years and continually upholds our values and is compassionate about her work, supporting many customers while always respecting their dignity.
In September, Olga attended her shortlist interview for the Great British Care Awards for The Home Care Worker Award. Here she spoke about her customers and how she built their care around them and their interests. She helped one gentleman have lunch and encouraged him to do his exercises and to read a book to keep his mind active while she prepared his food.
Another customer was living alone away from family in Australia. Olga supported her independence by gaining her a Freedom Pass from her own money to take her for a coffee and a chat at a local cafe. While the customer was admitted to hospital several times for short spells, Olga continued to feed her cat unpaid as there was no family.
We are very proud of Olga and will be keeping our fingers crossed for the winner to be announced in a few weeks.
