STAFF at Abbey­field care home have been cel­e­brat­ing 10 years of ser­vice.

Seven staff at the Bal­lachul­ish home re­ceived awards at a cer­e­mony last month, for more than 10 years’ ser­vice, show­ing their level of com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to this char­ity-run care home.

As part of the staff devel­op­ment at Abbey­field, they have been work­ing closely with the Univer­sity of Stir­ling and their De­men­tia Ser- vices Devel­op­ment Cen­tre. Thir­teen staff have com­pleted the Best Prac­tice in De­men­tia Care Learn­ing Pro­gramme in 2016.

The awards, which were sup­ported by lo­cal Coun­cil­lor Thomas MacLen­nan, were pre­sented by Trus­tees David Thomp­son and Elaine Lang.

Man­ager Wilma Al­lan said ‘The high stan­dards at Abbey­field could not hap­pen with­out the hard work of our team.’
