Inaugural #GladtoCare competition successfully brings the care sector together

Carers from across the UK were invited to take part in a photo competition run by Person Centred Software and The Care Workers Charity.

Alice Taylor, the cook at Primrose Lodge Southbourne care home in Bournemouth, won a Haven holiday in the #GladtoCare competition. The winning entry features a photo of Alice cooking and her message: “I’m #GladtoCare making home cooked food daily for my residents and have been for seventeen years.”

The esteemed panel of judges including David Brindle, the Guardian’s public services editor, Professor Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England, Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum and Alex Ramamurthy, former-CEO of the Care Workers Charity, selected the winning entry.

Inaugural #GladtoCare competition successfully brings the care sector together

Vic Rayner says, “I really liked Alice’s entry as I felt that it gave you a real sense of pride, commitment and long-term career. Here is someone who has provided one of the key components of great care – good food – for seventeen years – and at the end of that time is not only still smiling – but is #GladtoCare – inspiring.”

The #GladtoCare competition was designed to boost the profile of carers, who work extremely hard with very little public recognition. It aimed to show carers that they are appreciated and to raise their morale. Carers were invited to take a photo of themselves doing something that makes them ‘glad to care’, along with a message describing their photo. Person Centred Software received many entries from carers who were delighted to share their skills, creativity and dedication. The finalists can be viewed on Person Centred Software’s website at

Primrose Lodge Southbourne, part of the Affinity Care Management group, has been using Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring system to evidence care and support since January 2016.
