Staff from two Hampshire Brendoncare homes are finalists for Hampshire Care Awards

Winchester-based charity, The Brendoncare Foundation, is pleased to announce that two members of staff from its Hampshire homes have been nominated as finalists for Hampshire Care Awards. Montana Pusey, Senior Carer, from Brendoncare Alton, has been recognised in the ‘Residential Care Nurse/Carer of the Year’ category, and Tor Robbins, Administrator at Brendoncare Park Road, has been nominated for ‘Non-Care Employee of the Year’.

The Hampshire Care Awards is an annual event, organised and hosted by Hampshire Care Association and Hampshire Domiciliary Care Providers, to celebrate outstanding individuals and providers of adult social care across the county.

Award presentations take place at a formal event at Winchester Guildhall on Friday 15th November.

Montana Pusey is a senior carer who has worked at Brendoncare Alton for three years. In addition to caring for the home’s residents, she also delivers training, particularly during the induction of new staff, and also provides specialist support for long term conditions and advanced medication management.

Tor (Victoria) Robbins is an administrator at Brendoncare Park Road, in Winchester. She describes herself as someone who enjoys helping others, and is passionate about working in the charity sector. Despite being based in an office within the home, residents know her well and she takes the time to learn what is important to each person living at Park Road.

Brendoncare Park Road is a care home in Winchester, providing nursing care for up to 40 people. Brendoncare Alton is the charity’s largest home, providing residential and nursing care for up to 80 people, including those living with dementia. Both homes share the Brendoncare aim of enabling older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives, with the emphasis very much on quality and enjoyment of life.

Carole Sawyers, Brendoncare’s Chief Executive, said “We are delighted that Montana and Tor have been shortlisted for the Hampshire Care Awards. They are both truly deserving of their nominations; their dedication and commitment to the residents they support in their different roles has been exemplary.”
