In the lavish awards ceremony hosted at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on June 13, Kris Oughton took home the award for his tremendous efforts within the dementia community, across both England and Wales.

The evening was attended by a plethora of employers, care providers, care workers and informal carers, and Kris was joined by Paula Hoggarth, Group Operations Director at Radis Community Care.

Of his extraordinary win, Kris said: “What an amazing and emotional evening. I was delighted to be announced as a finalist, but to my absolute surprise, I won!

“I can’t express the pride I feel, and how much this award means to me. I’m incredibly honoured to do the job that I do, and being able to create forever memories and smiles with so many amazing residents and service users across the country is simply amazing.

“To win this award is just priceless, and I’d like to thank the wider team at Radis Community Care who continue to support my innovative activities and events throughout the business.”

Having worked at Radis as an activities coordinator for more than three years, Kris was recently promoted to National Activities Lead where he continues to provide fun, interactive and engaging activities for all of the business’s residents and recipients of care.

Kris works closely with all of Radis’ services across England and Wales, incorporating monthly schedules and activity plans for thousands of residents.

Enhancing the lives of those living with dementia, Kris ensures they remain active both physically and mentally with activities such as bingo and quiz nights, knit and natter club, and breakfast club to music-themed activities and wiggle and giggle.

Danielle Jones, Head of Care Services at Radis Community Care expressed her pride at Kris’ recognition and much-deserved award win.

She said, “It’s fantastic to see such a caring and dedicated member of the team be recognised for their work.

“At Radis, we see the work that Kris does every day and we’re delighted that this can be seen across the wider industry, too.”
