Winchester-based charity, The Brendoncare Foundation, is pleased to announce that Malgorzata Olszowka (Gosia), Deputy Manager, at its East Grinstead care home Brendoncare Stildon, has been nominated as a finalist for the Frontline Leaders Award category within the Great British Care Awards.

Gosia has been recognised for her encouraging nature with the care team at Brendoncare Stildon. She has a passion when caring for the residents and is always approachable to staff, residents and their families. She said,

“I am very proud to be nominated as for the Frontline Leaders Award. To be recognised as a good leader is a huge achievement for me and my team, without which I would not be able to grow and develop. I have been working in Brendoncare Stildon for 11 years now, it is a big part of my life.”

The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK, celebrating excellence in the care sector. The awards pay tribute to individuals and teams who are recognised as outstanding within their field of work.

This year, judging will be via online interviews and will take place in November. Winners of the Great British Care Awards will be presented with their awards at a Gala Evening in April 2021 at The Hilton Hotel, Brighton.

Annie Burisky, General Manager at Brendoncare Stildon, said,

“We are delighted that Gosia has been shortlisted for this award. She is truly deserving of this nomination; her dedication and commitment to providing the best possible care for residents of Brendoncare Stildon is outstanding.”

In her spare time, Gosia enjoys walking in the woodlands and reading a good book. She is Mum to a four-year old daughter and playing with her is a big part of her day.

Gosia isn’t the only Brendoncare employee who has been nominated as a Great British Care Awards finalist, though. Staff at Brendoncare Park Road, Brendoncare Alton and the Catering Manager at Brendoncare Knightwood are all through to the final round in different categories.

Brendoncare Stildon is a care home in Dorset Avenue, East Grinstead, providing care and support for up to 32 people who have personal care and nursing needs, some of whom are living with dementia or chronic conditions. Its aim is to help older people live independent, happy and fulfilling lives.
