A Tiffany necklace has been awarded to a Redbridge care assistant for her dedicated and compassionate service to patients with brain injuries.

Ilford resident Keira Shannon, at the 1 Sewardstone Close in Waltham Abbey, is the winner of the 2017 Heart of Gold Award beating 35 others.

She was nominated by care home residents and their relatives, co-workers, social workers and local health professionals with the final decision made by a panel of former Heart of Gold award winners.

Reflecting on her win, Kiera said: “I love my job, the residents and our team. Thank you for all your support to help me to do my job”.

The home provides specialist care to patients with acute brain injuries or other complex neurological conditions.

Marie Goodwin, manager of the care home, said: “She is attentive to our resident’s needs, caring and compassionate, and she is always goes above and beyond to help her colleagues.”
