Balhousie staff shine at awards ceremony

Two Balhousie Care Group staff shone at a glittering awards ceremony last week honouring some of the country’s top employees.

The Perth-based care provider won two accolades in the s1Jobs Recruitment Awards, one for its specialist services arm ASC and the other for an employee believed to be the oldest care worker in the country.

In a ceremony in Glasgow last Thursday hosted by comedian Jo Brand, Jen Aitchison, Manager at ASC, was commended in the Shona McKenzie Shine Award category. The award recognises those who “go above and beyond their call of duty, offer excellent service and take pride in their work.”

Jen was praised for strengthening and growing ASC and improving grades at the service, which supports adults with complex needs including challenging behaviour and learning disabilities. ASC has locations in Balbeggie and Coupar Angus.

Eighty-one-year-old Activities Coordinator Liz Thomson won the Shine Award for her work at Balhousie Huntly care home in Aberdeenshire. Liz was recently a finalist in the Great British Care Awards and appeared on STV for being what is believed to be the oldest care worker in the country.

Jill Kerr, Group Chief Executive Officer at Balhousie Care Group, said: “It’s wonderful to see Liz and Jen’s achievements recognised. They are both an absolute credit to the company and represent everything our staff stand for: commitment, exceptional work and going above and beyond.”
