Oaklands’ Head of Care is a finalist in the Great British Care Awards!

Posted on 3 October 2023

We want to say a massive congratulations to our Head of Care, Mia Williams, for becoming a finalist in the Great British Care Awards!

Mia’s well-deserved recognition in the South East Palliative Care Category highlights how special she is, with her professional dedication and outstanding support for our residents and their friends and family.

Mia is a hardworking and committed member of the Oaklands team, she started her career as a Carer in 2016 and has progressed to Senior Carer, Senior Lead and is now Head of Care and our medication champion.

What sets Mia apart is her deeply personal motivation. Initially, Mia came into care to look after her terminally ill father with her mother, but as she truly values how precious the later stages of life are, wanted to give something back to other families. Mia continues to be passionate and committed to the residents and their loved ones. Becoming a finalist proves Mia is exceptional at supporting family and friends, and treats our residents with dignity and respect throughout difficult times.

Mia has shown her dedication by completing her care certificate, followed by Levels 2, 3, 4 and 5. She is currently taking a course in End of Life Care at Bridgwater and Taunton College. Mia aims to provide the best person-centred care, and to be at Oaklands until she retires – something we couldn’t be happier about!

The awards will be taking place on the 17th of November at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton and we wish Mia the best of luck.

Please join us in congratulating Mia on this incredible achievement!
