Scottish Carers Win Top Awards
Top carers and nurses from leading care provider, Meallmore Ltd have been recognised for their outstanding dedication at the 2022 Meallmore Staff Awards
The awards, now in its 11th year, returned to a live ceremony at the Dunblane Hydro. 180 members of staff from Meallmore’s 26 care homes across Scotland came together for the 2022 celebrations.
Presented by singer and TV personality, Michelle McManus, the awards recognise Meallmore employees who have made a positive impact on improving the lives of residents, family members of residents and colleagues over the past twelve months.
This year, there were twelve awards categories, including Emerging Talent and Carer of the Year, as well as a special Chairman’s Award. In total, there were 1,005 submissions, more than double those received for 2021’s awards. The company employs around 1,700 people, all of whom were eligible for a nomination.
On presenting the awards, Michelle McManus said:
“Congratulations to all the finalists and winners of the Meallmore Staff Awards 2022. I am so pleased I was able to get involved again – as always, these awards for Meallmore staff are so important and it’s great to celebrate all the individuals who show such exceptional dedication to so many people across Scotland. Thank you to the team at Meallmore for inviting me back to be part of this year’s ceremony.”
Gerry Hennessey, Managing Director of Meallmore, said:
“Recognising the hard work of our staff is extremely important to everyone at Meallmore. These awards are all about celebrating the incredible people at our care company who have made a real difference to the lives of our residents across the country. It gives me great pride to see members of the team showcasing such commitment, and the winners are thoroughly well-deserved.
“I would like to thank our staff from all 26 of our care homes who go above and beyond every single day to provide the highest standards of care for our residents. The work they do doesn’t go unnoticed and I’m glad we can acknowledge them in this way. A big thank you also goes to Michelle McManus who once again has shown support for the work that we do.”
