Kenwith Castle’s Bela Racz is celebrating with colleagues and residents after being named ‘Residential Carer of the Year’ at Care South’s annual Stars Awards ceremony.
Bela was nominated by residents and their relatives, who all recognised his reliability and professionalism in his work, as well as his cheerful and friendly approach.
Home Matron at Kenwith Castle, Rae Vanstone, said: “Bela is a very popular carer at Kenwith Castle. Residents respond to his gentle, patient nature and pleasant manner. Nothing is too much trouble for him and we’re delighted that he’s been recognised by this award.”
Care South, a leading provider of high quality, innovative residential and home care services across the South of England, announced the winners of its annual awards at an event last week at the RNLI College in Poole, Dorset.

“The winners of the awards have inspired colleagues, residents and service users with their exceptional performance and we’re very pleased to be able to give them special recognition.”
