All named above recently celebrated a milestone anniversary in their employment at Carewatch, ranging from 5 to 20 years.

At the ceremony, Carewatch presented each of the carers with awards along with a certificate, a pin badge and Love2shop gift vouchers to reward their commitment and hard work. They also received words of thanks from area manager Chris Koymans and a letter of praise from Carewatch CEO Scott Christie.

Carewatch laid on a sumptuous lunch buffet for everyone at the event, who enjoyed an afternoon of socialising and sharing achievements with each other.

Chris Koymans has said:

“We are delighted to give something back by presenting our devoted carers with tokens of appreciation. These individuals are compassionate, considerate and genuinely wish to make a difference to the lives of others. We are so proud to have them as part of the Carewatch family.”
