Following our win in the Catering Team of the Year section of the Caring UK awards, we are delighted to announce that Rubislaw Park has been shortlisted for two major industry awards - the Catering Team of the Year and Care Home of the Year Scotland.
We were also shortlisted in the Dementia Care Team category last year too.
Now in their second year, the Caring UK Awards, which are organised by Script Events in conjunction with leading care industry magazine Caring UK, recognise excellence and achievement within the sector across the UK.
In each category, up to six finalists have been selected and we will now go through to the next stage of the judging process, which involves a visit to each finalist by a member of the awards team who will take a look around our facilities and chat to our residents and staff before compiling a comprehensive report. This will then be passed on to an expert judging panel to decide the winners, who will be revealed in December.
Kristin Jackson-Brown, our Director of Care said: "As the only north-east care home on the shortlist for our categories, we are delighted to play a part in showcasing some of the great work which is being done in the care sector."
"Reaching this stage is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone on the team, and we are now crossing our fingers for a successful night in Leicester on December 8."
