(PWS) Although a relatively new service manager and new to supporting individuals with PWS, Gary has hit the ground running and injected even greater levels of enthusiasm since his arrival, to the acclaim of everyone at Parvale House.

Gary was nominated for the award by Gail Ghavami, Operations Manager for Midlands 3, who said, “Gary’s strong leadership, has resulted in a highly motivated team and a happy, positive home where individuals are placed at the centre of their care and consistently achieve exceptional outcomes.”

“Most individuals living at Parvale House are ‘aging’ in PWS terms and management of their weight and health is lifesaving in terms of longevity. The team have really pulled together to create an ethos of encouragement and reward which is already paying dividends for those living there.”

Gary said, “I feel very humbled to to have been nominated for this award by Gail. The positive outcomes we support individuals to achieve here at Parvale House are the result of our collective efforts as a team, so being shortlisted for this award really serves as recognition of us all.”
