Evening Times - - NEWS -

A GLAS­GOW care home man­ager who is “ded­i­cated to his job” has won a pres­ti­gious na­tional award.

Eric Cordiner, unit man­ager of Four Hills in Ruchill, has been crowned win­ner of the Pal­lia­tive and End of Life Care Prac­tice cat­e­gory at the Scot­tish Care Awards.

The awards, held re­cently at the Hil­ton and hosted by singer and pre­sen­ter Michelle McManus, pro­mote best prac­tice within the home care and care home sec­tors.

For the last 15 years, the event has paid trib­ute to those in­di­vid­u­als who have demon­strated out­stand­ing ex­cel­lence within their field of work.

Eric’s hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the peo­ple of Four Hills were recog­nised by the judges, who said: “Eric is a de­voted unit man­ager who has con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the home.

“He takes a lot of pride in know­ing his res­i­dents well, and keep­ing up the staff morale so that chal­leng­ing days feel eas­ier.

“Well done Eric on this wellde­served award.”

Eric said: “Work­ing in a care home can have chal­leng­ing mo­ments, but it is all worth it when you win an award like this.

“I wish to thank my team and my peers for their sup­port, par­tic­u­larly the staff at Four Hills who nom­i­nated me and all my lovely res­i­dents and fam­i­lies.”

He added: “I hope I have done them proud.”

Di­vi­sional Di­rec­tor Fiona Fa­gan said: “The Divi­sion and Re­gion are im­mensely proud of Eric’s achieve­ment in be­ing awarded the pal­lia­tive and end of life care prac­tice.”

Four Hills care home is run by Barch­ester Health­care, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which has been op­er­at­ing across the coun­try for 25 years.

It pro­vides nurs­ing care, in­clud­ing respite care and long-term stays, for 120 res­i­dents.
