Kasia Domanska, Senior Care Assistant, at Hawkhill House care home in Milltimber, has been named joint winner of the Care Newcomer Award in Caring Homes’ Scottish Recognition Awards.

Kasia was nominated by relatives of a resident at Hawkhill who described her as ’a joy to watch’, and was selected for the award because of her positive impact on care at the home. Situated on Deeside Road, Hawkhill House provides nursing and dementia care for up to 43 elderly people.
