South Waikato News - - NEWS -

DOU­BLE DE­LIGHT: Rangiura Rest Home was a big win­ner at the awards night with two of the biggest prizes.

Man­age­ment and staff were cel­e­brated as Rangiura won the em­ployer of the year and em­ployee of the year awards.

In ac­cept­ing the awards Juli­ette Bell paid credit to the staff ‘‘we’re ab­so­lutely pas­sion­ate about the work we do for our res­i­dents’’.

Mrs Bell (pic­tured out­side Rangiura’s dementia unit) said she was ‘‘in­cred­i­bly hum­bled’’ by the em­ployer award.

The Pu­taruru and wider com­mu­nity was also thanked at the awards for its ef­forts in rais­ing more than $700,000 for the unit.
