Caring Homes has seven homes in Scotland, providing nursing, residential, specialist and dementia care for a wide range of residents.
Caring Homes Managing Director Tracey Fletcher-Ray, who presented the recognition awards as well as long service awards for 10, 15 and 20 years, said: “It is fantastic to be able to recognise these achievements and all the great work which is done by Caring Homes in Scotland.”
Scotland Regional Manager for Caring Homes Jackie Morrison added: “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 deserves a special mention, as do all of those who have put in 10,15, or 20 years’ service with us.”
