Six decades of caring for others has seen Wendy Eltze shortlisted for a national award.

Wendy’s career path was set as a small child – at the age of four she accompanied her aunt, a district nurse and midwife on her rounds.

Now, aged 68, Wendy is the care manager at Thamesfield Retirement Village and has been named as a finalist in the Care Manager category of the National Care Awards 2011.

She will now undergo a gruelling interview process before the winners are announced at a glittering ceremony in November.

Wendy’s commitment to her career and the residents she cares for earned her the glowing testimonial which saw her shortlisted.

Thamesfield Village Manager Rhona Price said: “Wendy’s expertise and professionalism are sought out by GPs and healthcare professionals. Her enthusiasm and passion are contagious and have inspired the careers of many carers.”

Paul Walsh is the Managing Director of the Care and Operations Division of Retirement Villages Ltd, the company which owns Thamesfield. He said: “Wendy is a very highly regarded manager who brings endless patience, professionalism and capabilities to her role. I am thrilled her dedication and commitment has been recognised in this way.”
