Trio of top awards for Hawkhill House

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

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.

Three of these coveted awards went to colleagues at Hawkhill House in Milltimber. Joanna Siwinska was named as Nurse Newcomer, Tess Masson scooped the Support Services Award and Janilyn Binns was Care Newcomer.

Although new to Hawkhill House Joanna was praised by a relative as “kind and caring, with a lovely, gentle approach to her pateints – she embodies all the Caring Homes stand for.”

Janilyn is also a newcomer to the home and is praised for her warm and happy nature with one relative seeing her going far in her career in care. “She shows a level of love, care and understanding that is quite exceptional. She has treated my wife like her own mother and has given me the strength to cope with the loss of my wonderful wife after 57 years of marriage,” said one nominator.

Tess Masson – senior housekeeper at Hawkhill House – is praised for going the extra mile at all times to help her colleagues. She is seen as supportive and positive, an asset to the home.

Scotland Regional Manager for Caring Homes Jackie Morrison said; “These awards give us the opportunity to celebrate excellence in Scotland and the high calibre of the homes and colleagues we have working here. Everyone who was nominated deserve a special mention, as do all of those who have put in 10,15, or 20 years’ service with us.”
