Erskine Park Home and two of their staff have been announced as finalists in the Scottish Care Awards 2019.

Hot on the heels of winning the Best Care Home Practice Improvement Award at Scotland’s Dementia Awards last month, Erskine Park staff are delighted to be finalists in three categories for the National Care Home Awards 2019.

Scottish Care – the voice of independent care in Scotland – will host the Awards Ceremony on 15th November at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.

Erskine Park Home Administrator Jackie Kennedy, who is often the first friendly face people see when they enter the home, is up for the Ancillary and Support Staff Award.  Senior Care Assistant Lynn Hewetson is in the Training, Learning and Staff Development Award Category.  And Erskine Park Home is in the shortlist for the Meaningful Activity Award.

Erskine Park Home Manager Lesley Wylie said: “We are really pleased and extremely proud to have been shortlisted in three categories in the forthcoming Scottish Care Awards.  Nominations such as these encourage staff to develop and flourish within their roles and are testament to their hard work and dedication in caring for our residents.”

Erskine Director of Care Derek Barron said: “I am thrilled that our staff and the Erskine Park Home team as a whole have been shortlisted for these awards.  The awards recognise the exceptional contribution that is made daily in the lives of our residents and those that visit the home.  The team, both direct and indirect care, have our residents at the very centre of everything they do, which clearly demonstrates our belief that Erskine Park Home is, first and foremost, the resident’s home.” 

Erskine Park Home specialises in the provision of first class dementia care for 40 Veterans and spouses within the tranquil grounds of the Erskine Veterans Village in Bishopton.
