A Horndean care home is celebrating after one of its team members received a very special award.
Jordan O’Sullivan, a Carer at Care UK’s Pear Tree Court, on Portsmouth Road, was awarded the ‘Coronavirus Youth Civic Award’ by the Mayor of Portsmouth, for her outstanding commitment to supporting local people throughout the pandemic.
Nominated by a member of the community who is voluntarily cared for by Jordan, the Mayor commended her compassionate nature, selflessness and determination – which regularly sees her go above and beyond for those in her care, both in and outside of work.
Jordan said: “I am thrilled to have received the ‘Coronavirus Youth Civic Award’. I have always enjoyed supporting both residents and those I voluntarily help in the local community, as I consider them my friends, and was incredibly surprised to win an award for something I genuinely love doing.”
Niki Richards, Home Manager at Pear Tree Court, said: “We are incredibly proud of Jordan for the outstanding level of care she provides for those both at Pear Tree Court and in the wider community.
“Jordan cares for others like they are all members of her own family, and we are incredibly lucky to have such a considerate, kind and generous person living in our community, and as a wonderful ambassador for Pear Tree Court. She is loved by residents, relatives, team members and local people alike, and it’s easy to see why!
“I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone at Pear Tree Court, to say thank you to Jordan for her hard work, which I know is greatly appreciated by everyone.”
