We are delighted to announce that Paul Pritchard, a Senior Care and Support Worker at our Llwyngwian Fawr Service in Barmouth has won Silver at the Wales Care Awards. Paul works with four adults at Llwyngwian Fawr and enjoys helping them to live as independent lives as possible.
He was nominated for the award by Service Manager, Karen Hills who said that she could rely on him to act in the residents’ best interests. “Paul is a role model to the team and is a supervisor to some,” she said. “He has built relationships with family members and outside professionals, ensuring good communication regarding the service users’ care”.
Karen said that Paul tackled each challenge with optimism and would always find a way to “make it happen”. One example was the way he went to great lengths to enable one client to visit his family 200 miles away for the first time in eight years. On the first trip they travelled by car, but Paul then set up a system by which the man could travel independently by train which he now does each year.
Paul, who has worked at Llwyngwian Fawr for five years, said “I’m very happy here and I get great satisfaction from providing the care that these lads need.”
Mario Kreft MBE, the Chair of the Care Forum Wales, said the Wales Care Awards had gone from strength to strength. “The aim is to recognise the unstinting and often remarkable dedication of our unsung heroes and heroines across Wales”.
