A care worker has been presented a Heart of Gold Award after being nominated by colleagues and the families of patients.

Graham Reid has been working at Hemel Hempstead’s Water Mill House care home since it opened in June this year.

He received many nominations for the award - run by care home provider Carebase, which specialises in nursing, residential and dementia care.

One nomination came from a resident’s relative who wanted to recognise his caring approach to settling her mother into the Rose Lane home.

Care home manager Anna Marrah said: “Graham is a fantastic care assistant and fully deserved this recognition. We send him our heartfelt congratulations and thanks for everything he brings to Watermill House.”

The Heart of Gold Awards were launched in 2009 to thank and recognise employees for their dedication and commitment to providing high quality care.
