Denu who has worked at Claremont Court for more than three years was presented with a Tiffany necklace as a reward by Alnur Dhanani, the chairman, and Nicola Coveney, the managing director of Carebase, the company that owns Claremont Court.

Nominations for the award came from residents and their relatives, co-workers, social workers and local health professionals. Denu was then chosen from the list of nominations by a panel of previous Heart of Gold award winners from all the other homes in the Carebase group.

Denu said: “I am surprised but delighted to have won this award. This is my first job in the UK and I am so thankful to the whole team for helping and supporting me every day so that we can care well for  our  residents, who are our family.”
