The skills and compassion of local caregiver have been recognised.

Nicky Osman have recently been recognised by her colleagues, who nominated her for the national Home Instead Senior Care Caregiver of the Year award.

She was one of just 12 finalists. Nicky, from Willingdon has worked for Home Instead for just under one year and quickly proved to be a valuable member of the caregiving team.

Ian Cottrell, Home Instead owner, said, “Nicky has embraced her role as a caregiver fully and completely. After ending a 35 year career in catering due to back issues, Nicky has made an astounding impact on her clients’ wellbeing in such a short span of time.

“Establishing the trust of her clients and putting them at ease is just one of the traits that makes Nicky such an exceptional caregiver. She spends time getting to know them, what their likes and dislikes are, and she genuinely feels empathy and compassion towards every client that she works with.”

Nicky said, “My clients have become my extended family and I do whatever I can to make life a pleasant and easy for them. It is an honour to be recognised by my colleagues for this award; I am very grateful.”

Ian added, “Nicky’s positive thinking, determination, and her commitment to providing exceptional person centred care coupled with her desire to consistently go over and above makes her a deserving candidate.”
