Lisa Tungate, Home Manager, presented three Recognition of Care and Kindness (ROCK) awards to various members of the team and Earlsferry House.
Lisa Tungate said: “I’m very proud of the team here, they regularly go the extra mile to make a difference to the residents they care for. These three awards show that every member of the team in the home cares for the residents that live here. Well done everyone! These awards are very well deserved.”
After the presentation, everyone enjoyed themselves with a slice of cake.
A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of their care homes. An internal prize, staff are nominated for an award by either residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.
Before the celebrations were over, Lisa also presented one team member with a special certificate as a thank you for living the company values.
Lisa added: “Karen Hanley has really made a difference to one of our resident’s lives as she has helped him develop his communication. She is very deserving of this recognition. Well done Karen.”
