Your Home Care Awards 2023

Your Home Care Awards 2023

For a very long time now, we’ve wanted to throw our own Awards ceremony for our wonderful team, our home care assistants and our office team, but just like lots of things, things got BUSY.

Christmas 2023, however, we made it our priority. Ideas were being thrown around about what we should do and where we should go for our Christmas party, that we just decided we would hold our own Christmas party at our head offices and turn it into Your Home Care Awards 2023.

We wanted to give something back to our homecare assistants and give them the recognition they deserve. We do our Above and Beyond awards throughout the year, and we’ll run competitions with prizes and host afternoon teas and pizza days; but this time, we really wanted a day of pure fun, gratitude and appreciation, for everyone to enjoy.

A lot of thought went into the categories and how these would be voted for. We wanted both the team to support and vote for their colleagues, as well as our clients in the community to give their thanks and appreciation too.

We had the wonderful Cordially Invited in to our offices to decorate our training room; it looked AMAZING!

Tayla, our marketing officer, created a wonderful graze table, suitable for everyone’s dietary needs; it was aesthetically pleasing to the eye, as well as pleasing to everyone’s appetites!

Votes really came in thick and fast! Everyone was really excited to cast their votes and they all sent some incredibly warming, heartfelt messages to accompany their vote.

We decided that we would have 3 “Carer of the Year” awards, for the 3 most voted homecare assistants, voted for by staff. Our 3 winners are:

Then we have our “Mansfield Carer of the Year” and our “Ashfield Carer of the Year”, which our clients voted for.

As well as our Carer of the Year Award, we thought it would be nice to have some other awards up for grabs, as well as some silly ones for the end of the afternoon! Again, these were all voted for by the team.

We also had awards that unfortunately, we didn’t get photographs of!

Our “5 more minutes” award went to Diane, for being consistently late but only because we know she cares that much that she will put all of her efforts into her work before she moves on to her next client.

Our “On the Dot” award went to Steph, for being the most punctual.

Our “Light at the end of the Tunnel” award went to Lisa, for exactly that, always seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and seeing the positives in all situations.

Our “She said it” award went to Jane, for always saying what others are thinking.

Our “Champagne” award went to Claire, for having the bubbliest personality.

And finally, our “First Responder” award went to Abbie, for always being prepared to help out at short notice.

With a certificate and a special gift for the winners of the Carer of the Year Award, we also made sure winners of the other categories received a bottle of bubbles and chocolates, and everyone received a token Christmas gift.

Overall, everyone had a fantastic afternoon. There were lots of Christmas jumpers, Christmas music and once the awards were done, time for everyone to eat, drink and chat, and get into the Christmas spirit.

Recognising our teams hard work and dedication to us is really important every day, and we’ll always say thank you and give praise where it’s always deserved. We hope to be able to do our awards again and really spoil our team and give them a day that’s all about them.

You can head over to our social media channels, Facebook and Instagram,  to see more photographs of the day!


After experiencing bad care workers previously, Your Home Care are the best. We are very happy with how mum gets looked after and it takes a lot of pressure away from us as a family. Thank you.

Clients Daughter

Excellent care shown to my father, took an interest in all the things he was involved with and made him feel well cared for and gave us peace of mind.

Clients Daughter

My care started with this company just over 8 weeks ago. In this time I’ve had 5* care. The ladies that look after me are on time and they go above and beyond to support me and my family They are my life line and dear friends (especially on social outings). The office staff and management are caring and understanding too. They deserve all the 5* they have. Thank you so much.


Professional carers, treated with dignity and kindness. Punctual with all visits and will discuss any concerns relating to care immediately. High standard and person-centred approach in care

Strong managerial support and transparent. Always happy to discuss any aspects of care with an understanding of both the needs of the client and relatives.

Client’s Daughter

We have been using your home care for a couple of months now for my mother and father-in-law and are so impressed with their service. Not only have they given us peace of mind knowing that our loved ones are being checked in on, but they also did some checks on my father-in-law which highlighted that his blood pressure was extremely low. They contacted us straight away which meant we were able to contact the GP regarding this and as a result, my father-in-law has had his medication reduced and his blood pressure is now normal. Without your home cares intervention this would have gone unnoticed possibly resulting in my father-in-law becoming unwell.

I can not recommend their services highly enough. They give us peace of mind knowing that someone has been in and checked on my mother and father-in-law and we know that they will contact us with any concerns they have.

Client’s Daugher-in-Law

We recently started using the support service by Your Home Care for my grandad and we only have great things to say about the team. The care, consideration and support the team have provided for my grandad have been second to none. The daily visits have really boosted his morale and he has found the staff so helpful and supportive. He has said he feels like they really care. I would recommend using Your Home Care to anyone, they are wonderful. Thank you so much for helping my grandad.
