A Sheffield care worker, who once performed life saving CPR on a resident, has been personally thanked by the Lord Mayor of Sheffield for her exemplary 22 years service at Rosebank Nursing Home.
Helen Ibottson revealed she was full of emotion when the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Coun Anne Murphy, paid her a surprise visit recently, to present her with an outstanding achievement award in front of the home’s manager Andrew Selwood, staff members and Roy Young, managing director of city-based Silver Healthcare, that operates the home.
The care worker has become a role model within the organisation for her attention to detail, exemplary care and positive attitude. She is now leaving the industry to set up in business with her sister.
Coun Anne Murphy, said: “Helen’s patience and tenacity stood out – the staff have said what a privilege it has been to work with her over the years.”
Roy Young said: “Helen has held an exemplary record over 22 years with excellent attendance, spotless disciplinary record and numerous Health & Social care accreditations. She won our employee of the year award in 2002 and has been a consistent winner of the employee of the month. The door is always open if she fancies coming back.”
