The first Agincare Hero Medal was presented to James Jannece from our Worthing home care service. James was praised for his kind nature, dedicated work ethic and boundless positivity. Sadly, James passed away at the at the age of 35 following a valiant battle with cancer. We were very privileged to have James’s fiancé Chloe, his mother Liz and Worthing Registered Manager Vicky-Ann Burrows with us to collect the award.

The second Agincare Hero Medal was presented to Jane Nash from our Rose Garden extra care service. Jane is already seen by many as a hero – all praise her selfless passion and dedication to those she and her team care for.

The third and final Agincare Hero Medal was presented to Amy Crabb, an Agincare stalwart that has been with the team for over eighteen years.
