Specialism: Uplands House is a registered residential care home for 4 service users with learning disabilities or mental health needs plus additional complex needs.
Ann Peebles, Service Manager at Uplands House in Newbridge, has been short-listed in a category for Promoting Fulfilled Lives.
Ann helps to care for people with learning disabilities and mental health needs in Newbridge, Gwent.
Ann, lives in Cwmcarn, Newport, was short-listed because those she cares for are always busy doing something, whether out in the community participating in leisure activities or simply relaxing at home enjoying pampering sessions or the sensory room.
She has worked for Regard for the last eight years but has been working in the care sector for 20 years.
She organises mini breaks, trips to the theatre and encourages service users in her care to lead full and active lives.
The Wales Care Awards were first held in 2003 and are an annual fixture in the care calendar. Winners will be announced at a special event in City Hall, Cardiff on November 6.
