We are delighted that our Head of Operations, Alison O’Meara has been recognised at the National Finals of The Great British Care Awards.

In October, Lisieux Trust received recognition in nine categories at the regional version of the awards, covering all the West Midlands.

The awards pay tribute to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.

There are 21 awards categories available for recognition, focusing on all areas of the social care sector, whether residential care, specialist services, older people, or home care.

Alison was named the winner of the ‘Putting People First’ award in the West Midlands for demonstrating an innovative approach to empowering people to have more control over the support they need in their lives.

Through winning this award, Alison received a nomination for the national award, competing against the winners from the other 11 regions across the UK.

The National Finals took place on Friday 17th March at the ICC in Birmingham and the Lisieux team attended on the night to proudly celebrate Alison’s brilliant achievement.

Speaking about Alison’s fantastic recognition our CEO Jessica Alsop-Greenacre said: “I am thrilled that Alison has been recognised for the unique way she works; people are genuinely at the heart of everything she does, both the people we support and our employees.

She does little things every day that make people feel listened to, supported and valued. She never misses an opportunity to have fun, to say well done or thank you or just to take some time to listen. Having worked with her for many years; she truly is one of a kind and Lisieux Trust is incredibly lucky to have her.”

At Lisieux Trust, the safety of our tenants, residents and team members will always be our number one priority and one of the ways we ensure this is by providing all the equipment we need to protect and support the people in our care.

We recently purchased some specialist equipment in the form of a Raizor lifting chair that will enable us to lift our tenants and residents safely should they ever suffer a fall.

The decision to add this new safety equipment comes following recent ambulance crew strike action, where it emerged that due to shortages of paramedics, they would not be attending calls for trips or falls.

When someone has suffered a fall, the chair allows you to lift the person from the floor quickly, safely, and with minimal effort, even in tight spaces such as bathrooms or staircases.

It helps to remove the need to call an ambulance and leave the person waiting on the floor for a long period, both improving the quality of care and giving loved ones peace of mind.

The chair only requires a single carer to use it, unlike many others that require someone to operate the chair and another person to support the injured person as they are lifted.

It will be stored at one of our properties but is easily transportable due to its compact design and all members of the Lisieux team will be trained in how to use the equipment safely and correctly.

This means we can also protect our team members from injury when giving assistance, providing with the right equipment and training to safely support the person in need.
