HC-ONE’S Forthbank Care Home in Stirling is celebrating the success of two number of colleagues who received Kindness in Care Awards for the great work they deliver for Residents on a daily basis.

The Kindness in Care Awards programme was launched by HC-One, a leading provider in health and social care, in October 2013 to recognise the efforts of their kindest colleagues, and the impact they have on the lives of Residents and their loved ones. Month on month, record breaking numbers of awards are presented to colleagues, volunteers, and whole teams within the family of homes that HC-One operates across the UK.

Members of the Forthbank team, Michaela Nicol and Kirsty Matchett, were nominated by Resident Jean Marshall who commended their ongoing compassion and kindness to all at the home. In her nomination, Jean said “well done to both of you for all of your kindness to everyone”. Other Residents and relatives also shared their thanks to the pair for always going that extra mile.

HC-One aims to be the first-choice care provider in each of its communities for Residents looking for the very best care and support, and the employer of choice for the best, most professional, and kindest care staff, with sector leading career progression opportunities. HC-One consistently invests in staff and is currently celebrating achieving a 9.3/10 average rating on the sector’s leading care home comparison website carehome.co.uk, with Forthbank itself achieving an impressive 9.7/10 rating. This high rating puts HC-One homes into the very best company in the care home sector.

HC-One Forthbank Care Home Manager, Yvonne Graham, said:

“I’m so proud of Kirsty and Michaela for achieving this award, and I know they were particularly touched as the nomination came from Jean. They both work tirelessly, with so much compassion and it is great to see their continued dedication to delivering the very best and kindest care.”

HC-One Managing Director, Elizabeth Roscoe, said:

“The Kindness in Care Awards programme is about recognising and celebrating colleagues who demonstrate the kindest care and the best practice that we can all learn from, and Forthbank has the privilege of having just such colleagues.

“Each and every day, HC-One staff do incredible work, and make such a difference to the lives of Residents living in our homes. It is great to work with such inspirational, caring and kind people.”
