Care home workers clock up almost 60 years of service




Care home workers clock up almost 60 years of service

Three staff members at Muirton House care home in Blairgowrie have been presented with long service awards in recognition of their, almost 60 years, of dedicated service.

Pearl Kerr has worked as a carer at the home for 27 years, while Gill Rennie has served as home administrator for 17 years, and Arlene Palmer, head cook, has been at Muirton House for 15 years.

Catherine Russell, Care Home Manager, said: "There have been many changes in the home over the last 30 years and the staff have adapted admirably to this.

“These staff, along with others who have given a lot of years of service, are dedicated to Muirton House and will help out at any time to ensure the comfort and safety of our residents. Having staff who know the home well helps with continuity of care, especially for those residents who are frail or have dementia.”

As a thank you for their years of hard work, all three staff members were presented with vouchers for Victor and Sons Jewellers in Blairgowrie.

Tony Stein, CEO of Healthcare Management Solutions, which manages Larchwood Care homes, said: “The individuals that contribute to delivering the top quality care in our resident’s homes are our life blood. They are what make our services a genuine ‘home from home’. Pearl, Gill and Arlene are shining examples of the dedication and commitment shown by carers across the country and we are all incredibly proud to work alongside them.”

 

Muirton House is regulated by the Care Inspectorate and is rated 5s, “very good”, in all areas. Across the Larchwood portfolio, the regulator ratings reflect the exceptionally high standards of care given and the drive of every team member to continually improve the care they give”.
