Caring Homes are in the running for two Scottish Care Awards 2016

Angela Baird, Nurse and Deputy Manager of Forth Bay Care Home, in Kincardine is one of just four finalists in the category Nurse of the Year. Marchglen Care Centre, in Alloa, Clackmannanshire has been shortlisted as one of just three finalists in the category Specialist Service/Unit Award.

Winners will be announced at a glittering awards dinner to be held at the Hilton Hotel on the 18th November in Glasgow.

Since Joining in 2005, Angela has shown exceptional aptitude for managing the 22-bed unit within Forth Bay. Angela is a great nurse on top of her role as Deputy Manager – caring, approachable and compassionate. The empathy she shows to residents, relatives, staff and students is exemplary. It is reflected in the way her team, students, residents and family members look up to her yet clearly enjoy her company immensely.  This has brought a continuity of care to the unit that is noted in audits by the local pharmacy and the Care Inspectorate.

Aberfoyle is a very specialised unit supporting six individuals of varying ages with complex needs – learning disabilities and mental health issues – providing a unique service in Central Scotland. Part of Marchglen Care Centre, the unit assists residents to leave as normal a life as possible on a daily basis. The two close-knit care teams at Aberfoyle work in an integrated and seamless way to provide exceptional care for residents. Their passion for improving lives and their dedication to their jobs is exemplary
