Karolina Nowadczyk, a team leader at Brunelcare's Deerhurst care home in Soundwell, took home the Dignity in Care accolade at The Great British Care Awards.

Karolina said: “To be nominated for the Dignity in Care Award is very special to me, but to have won the award is a dream come true! I work really hard to maintain the dignity of residents living with dementia and it’s something I’m extremely passionate about. It's great to know that all my hard work is paying off.”

This was the first of two accolades for Bristol-based charity Brunelcare - Daniella Masarque, who works at Robinson House care home in Stockwood, won an award for Best Activity Coordinator at The Care & Support West Awards.
