Carer who ‘always goes the extra mile’ beats 300 other nominees to national award

A North Lincolnshire carer has been recognised by families of people she has looked after for her constant dedication. Kathryn Sate was named the Hales Group’s Personal Approach award winner after being nominated by the families of three separate clients. The group employs 2,500 people nationally and Kathryn beat 300 other nominees to the award. Explaining how she’s able to achieve such a bond with the people she looks after, she said: “I just love my clients, I love caring and I love my job. I’ve been working as a carer for 22 years, which helps you to develop really strong bonds with your clients. I’m still completely overwhelmed to win though, I thought I was just coming in for a staff meeting.” Hales Group is a national care company which has its North Lincolnshire branch on Oswald Road in Scunthorpe. Its 2,500 employees give around 30,000 care hours a week for clients.
