Fairview's Ella Douglas nominated for Scottish Care Awards

Fairview's Ella Douglas nominated for Scottish Care Awards

Ella Douglas, laundry assistant at HC-One’s Fairview Care Home in Bannockburn, Stirling, has been announced as a finalist for the Scottish Care Awards.

Ella is a finalist for the Ancillary & Support Staff Award, which recognises care home support staff who ‘demonstrate excellence in their job’ and ‘make a significant contribution to the overall care provision’, and those who take special pride in their work.

Ella started working at Fairview in December 2013, having left her previous job to look after her mother after she developed Alzheimer’s. On returning to work, Ella wanted to continue supporting and caring for people, so working at Fairview was a perfect fit.

The key to Ella’s success is good organisation in ensuring that Residents have clean and fresh clothes and bedding every day, and working closely with Residents’ families to make sure that their every need is met. Ella loves seeing the Residents smile, and this motivates her to continue providing the best service she can.

Fairview Care Home is operated by HC-One, the country’s third-largest provider of residential care for older people.

Ella Douglas, Laundry Assistant at Fairview Care Home said:

“I feel very humbled to have been nominated for this award, and I am excited about attending the awards ceremony! I always try and do my best to ensure that the Residents here at Fairview are comfortable and happy, and it is very touching to think that my work is appreciated so much.”

Liz Whyte, Managing Director at HC-One said:

“We are delighted that Ella has received a well-deserved nomination for the Scottish Care Awards, and we wish her all the best at the awards ceremony. At HC-One we are very proud of the great work carried out by our dedicated colleagues who go above and beyond the call of duty to provide the kindest care to residents, and we are very happy to see them receive such high praise and recognition.”
