Wishaw Press - - PARKSPRINGS - Ben Ra­m­age

A de­ter­mined care home worker has picked up another award for con­tin­u­ing to raise stan­dards.

Rosie Bren­nan, ac­tiv­i­ties co­or­di­na­tor at Park­springs Care Home in Mother­well, won the CAPA ( Care About Phys­i­cal Ac­tiv­ity) award in Oc­to­ber for help­ing res­i­dents to stay ac­tive.

Her year got even bet­ter when she was handed the Innovative Prac­tice Award at the Scot­tish Na­tional Care Home Awards this month.

De­lighted Rosie de­scribed her lat­est win as a “wee mir­a­cle”.

She said: “The cer­e­mony was held in the Glas­gow Hilton.

“The other two fi­nal­ists and my­self were called up on stage and never in a mil­lion years did I think I would win.

“It was a wee mir­a­cle.

“I’m so proud, so hon­oured and just de­lighted.”

Rosie was recog­nised for her innovative ap­proach to im­prov­ing res­i­dents’ lives, in­clud­ing bring­ing Tai Chi into the home, work­ing with lo­cal nurs­eries and schools and get­ting fund­ing for fu­ture projects.

She added: “I’m so happy for the home and I’d like to pass the award to all the staff, res­i­dents, fam­i­lies, friends and the com­mu­nity as we all work to­gether and we achieved this amaz­ing which is a won­der­ful achieve­ment for ev­ery­one.

“A spe­cial thank you to my man­ager Jamie, Michelle my deputy and nurse Heather who came along and cheered me on.”

The win capped off a great year for Rosie.

As well as win­ning the CAPA award in Oc­to­ber, she won a UKwide gong for the Most Innovative Ac­tiv­i­ties Pro­gramme award at the Maria Mal­la­band and Coun­try­wide Care Awards, held in Leeds.
