by Andy Tong | 1st November 2018
BOZENNA ZALEWSKA, a live-in Care Assistant for Bluebird Care Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells, has been nominated for the award of Home Care Worker of the Year for the South-East at the Great British Care Awards on Saturday [November 3].
Bozenna was the first live-in carer for her customer, and transformed the lady’s life over a three-month period, making her ‘a completely different person’.
The carer used her initiative to help her to arrange important appointments, which she had found difficult to do before.
Bozenna said: “I am so happy to have had this opportunity to be a Care Assistant with Bluebird Care. I absolutely love my job, and not only that but my customers as well.
“To see a smile on their faces is so lovely. It is the reason I get up in the morning and what helps me sleep well at night.”
She added: “I am so happy that I was nominated for this award and cannot believe that I am a finalist. What a privilege, I tend to just do what I do because I love it, and to be recognised in this way is wonderful.”
Zoe Furlonger, Care Manager at Bluebird Care, paid tribute to Bozenna: “We have an incredible team of staff and I would like to congratulate Bozenna for her approach, which has led her to be nominated for this prestigious award.
“Bozenna is loved by our customers and is an excellent Care Assistant.
“She is so bubbly and passionate that you cannot fail to see how much she loves it.
