A month of appreciation, rewards and gratitude for staff

October 02, 2019

In General News

Staff have enjoyed a month of rewards and gratitude to honour their hard work and dedication throughout the year during our Staff Appreciation Month, which ended last week.

The staff appreciation event was introduced by the company to demonstrate to employees just how much they are valued. Since its launch, the initiative has become so popular across the Group that employees are coming up with new ideas to make each year even more special and rewarding.

A series of special raffles were held throughout the month to recognise long standing employees, outstanding contribution to the group, management, frontline staff and more.

The month ended with a final grand prize draw where our 1,200 employees were entered to win some amazing prizes like a week’s extra annual leave, Ipads, flat screen TV’s, £500 travel vouchers and spa breaks, to name a few.

Alison Price, Manager of Three Towns Care Home, who won the Managers Award which included a spa weekend and extra days’ annual leave said “I am so lost for words, it’s very much appreciated, I just think I was trying to do my job.”

Katy McVerry of Beechwood Care Home who won an Ipad in the grand prize draw said “I am absolutely delighted to have won an Ipad, it still hasn’t really sunk in that it’s mine!”

We were so pleased with the outcome of this year’s events and have committed to make next year even bigger and better.

We would like to a say a special thanks to all of our suppliers who contributed to the success of our amazing Staff Appreciation Event: Brakes, Spearhead, Kris Downing, Shackletons, Campbells, Comm Gas, Lynx, Third Eye, Scotec Lifts, Rotowash, Lockhart, Insurance Solutions, Balmoral, Electroguard, CSC, ARC and Mitre Linen.

Almond View Care Home

To all the staff at Almond View - a big thank you for looking after Mum, with such kindness and dedication. Despite living 400 miles away, I always had a good feeling that she was in good hands. When I did visit, the staff without exception, stopped to chat to us even though they were extremely busy. Please accept my heart felt thank you to you all - a real credit to Almond View.


Bankview Care Home

Thank you for the excellent level of care that my father, Frank Boyle, has received. Bankview demonstrated for us the template for a care home and how it should feel and be run. Friendly, welcoming, excellent care levels, length of time staff remain loyal to the home and above all a clear and comforting atmosphere of great leadership.

Both mum and I were most impressed with Beechwood and we have decided that is where we would like Dad to come to. You have put both mine and mum's minds at rest knowing that Dad will be looked after.

Thank You

K Macdonald in memory of my Aunt Jean

I can't exaggerate the admiration I have for the management and staff of Craigielea. I've never experienced so much patience, coaxing, kindness and care. These people share their lives and emotions, laugh and cry and mourn for the people who entrust themselves to care.

J Ellis in memory of Steve

The staff talked about my best friend being an inspiration to them, despite his illness It made me change my approach with him, instead of being despondent and sad, I spoke with him the way we had always been with each other. The staff saw him as a person.

My uncle, who is a retired GP, recently visited Dad on a trip over from Canada and commented that Craigielea is one of the best places he has ever seen in his experience of elderly care units. Very homely, calm, relaxing and wonderful staff. Keep up the fantastic work you do!
