Top award for Care and Support at Marchglen Care Centre

Team members from Caring Homes’ seven Scottish care homes gathered together at Marchglen Care Centre in Fishcross, this week for the company’s Scottish Recognition Awards.

It is the third year that the awards have been held and colleagues, residents and relatives were asked to nominate across nine categories: Nurse of the Year, Nurse Newcomer, Care & Support, Care Newcomer, Meaningful Activities, Nutrition/Eating Well., Management/Leadership, Specialist Adult Care and Support Services.

A top award for Care and Support was made to Jane Stewart, who is part of the care team at Marchglen.

Jane Stewart has been a member of the Marchglen team for a couple of years and her impact is measurable. One of her nominations describes her as ‘an outstanding carer’ who is a friend to all and a credit to the team.

“She always faces the problems and issues with a big smile and the warmth of her voice is felt in every corner of our unit’” said her nominator. Another nomination goes on to say Jane is  ‘One in a million’ and ‘always seems to know the right thing to say’.

As well as her daily caring duties Jane has also been heavily involved in transforming an area of the patio garden at Marchglen into an oasis of tranquillity and relaxation – appreciated by residents, relatives and her colleagues.

Managing Director Tracey Fletcher-Ray presented the recognition awards as well as long service awards for 10, 15 and 20 years. More than 30 long service presentations were made re-presenting more than 370 years of service by colleagues in Scotland.

Tracey said; “It is fantastic to be able to recognise these achievements and all the great work which is done by Caring Homes in Scotland.”
