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 as a care home”.

Dan, Home Manager of Rowan 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.

Winners of the National Care Awards will be presented with their trophies at the high-profile Gala Night held on Friday 29th November at the Hilton London Metropole attended by over 700 guests.
