Manor Park Staff Recognised for Outstanding Care and Compassion

A member of staff at Manor Park has been praised for their high level of care within their role. Michael Rutherford, a senior carer, was nominated for a ROCK Award (Recognition of Care and Kindness) by a relative who regularly visits the home and sees the lengths he goes to to ensure the residents are kept happy and comfortable. Michael (pictured) was presented with the award at the start of July in front of colleagues and residents.

Karen Shepherd, a relative who nominated Michael for his award said “I have known Michael since my mum became a permanent resident at Manor Park 6 years ago. Michael has always been there for Mum and our family. He understands her mannerisms even though she cannot verbalise what she needs. I believe Michael deserves to be recognised for the care and kindness he gives. He is a star and a ROCK to me and my Mum”.

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.

Dawn Heppell-Marshall, Peripatetic Home Manager, said “Our employees are our most valuable resource and the reason we are able to deliver the best possible care to meet residents’ needs. It is a delight to reward Michael in this way, and show appreciation for his exceptional hard work and dedication that helps to set Four Seasons Health Care apart.”

Residents at Riverside View Care Home in Darlington welcomed Age Concern into the home last week to celebrate everything armed forces related and the service given by veterans.

Claire Westmorland, Home Manager, said: “We have a number of residents in our home who served in the war, and it was nice for them to share their stories, but also a little emotional as many touched on the friends who never made it home. Representatives from Age Concern also shared their service experience, displaying their medals and other momentous from their time in service.

Havencourt-Care-Home-Stonehaven-Qualification-Success-Dec-2017

14 Dec 2017

The team at Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven came together to celebrate multiple colleague achievements at the home.

Chris Rose and Jamie Nicoll completed their SVQ Level 2, Lavinia Rose completed her SVQ Level 3. Vicky Costello and Iwona Lutchman have completed their Senior Nurse Care Assistant Programme.

SVQs are based on national standards which are drawn up by people from industry, commerce and education. They are badges or benchmarks of competence, so they work as a guarantee that someone who holds an SVQ can do the job the qualification covers.

Senior Nursing Care Assistants take on a higher level of responsibility and provide special resident experiences every day. The role can, and has, inspired many to explore further development pathways into Nursing or Home Management.

Rhona McGregor, Home Manager, said: “I’m very proud of the team here. They’ve worked really hard and thoroughly deserve this recognition. The skills they’ve learnt will further enhance the care they give to the residents here at Havencourt, which from what I can see is an added bonus, as the team here are already doing a fantastic job.”

Leading the way was resident kitty cat Oakley, although when he met the big man, he seemed less than impressed.

Denise Mackereth, Home Manager, said: “The festive spirit has definitely hit Oaktree. Everyone, except Oakley, was excited to see our inflatable Santa. It definitely got us in the mood to see the real thing. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Oaktree.”
