Sion Page wins the Outstanding Achievement Award
National Care Group are delighted to announce Sion Page, Support Worker for Integra Wales, has won this month’s Outstanding Achievement Award!
The judges were swayed by how Sion showed Passion, Empowerment, Respect and Collaboration, in the work he does.
Sion is a first language Welsh speaker whose key role is promoting the Welsh language within Integra. He has received positive feedback for how he has demonstrated a marked increase of the use of Welsh within the services.
As with training staff and the people we support, Sion is also responsible for translating several key documents and activities. His approach has allowed individuals to communicate in their preferred language as well as aid other learners.
Sion works in a person-centred way with everyone he supports, alternating his approach to be absolutely bespoke to the needs of the person he is supporting.
Sion was delighted with the award: “It was a surprise to win this award, I am delighted to be raising the awareness of the Active offer within our Care Homes and this further helps us do this, this has allowed us to work with a personal centred approach with all in the home.”
Staff and the people we support at Integra mentioned that his style of working, along with the rest of the team, has had a profound impact on the quality of life for the people who live within the homes.
This had led to individuals being empowered within their lives and Sion leads from the front on a shift and has a good internal barometer of how to deal with potentially challenging situations.
Peter Max, Regional Operations, was proud of Sion’s achievement: “We’re thrilled for Sion that his work has been recognised within NCG, Sion’s enthusiastic “can-do” attitude comes through in all he does and he’s a deserving winner of this award.”
Sion’s had a great month in also hearing he’s a finalist in the Wales Care Awards this October and so hopefully there’s more good news to celebrate in due course.
A massive congratulations to Sion and the entire team at Integra for winning the Outstanding Achievement Award!
