Rowan Lodge employees have been selected for the final of the Care Champion and Carer categories in the National Care Awards 2019!
Fay Kirrage (Senior Carer) and Kerry Monaghan (Activities Facilitator) at Rowan Lodge are overjoyed to be finalists in
the 21st National Care Awards. Having been nominated by peers and residents at Rowan Lodge care home, Kerry and
Fay are incredibly humbled and proud to be selected for these prestigious industry awards. Fay says “to be in the top 5 Carers group, I already feel like a winner” while Kerry comments “this job has enriched my life and for Rowan Lodge to be recognised nationally makes me even more proud of what we achieve at the care home”.
Dan, Home Manager of Holly Lodge, says “I’m very proud
of Kerry and Fay and that the care they provide through Nutrition and Hydration as well as Activities has been externally recognised”.
This award is one of eleven finalist positions Forest Care has received this year across all four homes. Frank Fogarty, owner of Forest Care, says “I’d just like to say a big thank you to all the staff for their extensive and good work that has led to us being shortlisted”.
The annual event recognises excellence and achievement in care homes throughout the country with shortlisted facilities being as far north as Ballachulish in northern Scotland and as far south as Devon.
