Elaine also won a trip to Texas, USA, for the Comfort Keepers International Awards next year.

According to her colleagues, “Elaine is a kind and thoughtful person. She’s a deserving winner as she believes in her work and the difference that home carers can make to the person and their families.”

Comfort Keepers has been helping older people and people with disabilities live their lives as fully and enjoyably as possible, by assisting them with everything from cooking and cleaning, to assisting them with their medications and providing a respite break for adults who are looking after their relatives.

"Seven years ago, we started our annual Carer of the Year awards in recognition of our staff who improve the quality of life of others, by offering exceptional care, support and companionship, and really enriching the lives of others,” said Brid Gould, Managing Director.

“I am so proud to be involved in such a special evening, recognising their extraordinary efforts”.

CKAwards ceremony also recognises their employees in various other support roles throughout the organisation for their outstanding performance and dedication to quality care in their communities.

The CKAwards ceremony was held at Kilashee House Hotel in Co Kildare with Daithi O’Se presenting on the night.
