We're happy to announce the Hollybank Trust Carer of the Month for September 2018 is Elaine McLauchlan a Support Worker at the Willow Court home. The nomination for Elaine reads:
"Elaine has been a valued member of the staff team at Willow Court for 18 years. She is a very dedicated support worker who goes above and beyond her role to ensure that all adults receive high quality care. For the past 3 years Elaine has organised an annual garden party for the adults at Willow Court, their families and staff. Elaine spends a lot of her own time planning for the event and her enthusiasm and passion shows through on the day. The families who attend always comment on what a fantastic afternoon they have had and how enjoyable the event has been. Elaine has also assisted with other events such as the 1940s themed day. She provided her culinary expertise which was enjoyed by everyone at Willow Court and adults from other homes across the Trust. Despite her own health problems, Elaine always gives 110% effort. Her positive attitude and good work ethic ensure that tasks are completed to an exceptional standard. We are delighted to nominate Elaine for this award in recognition for all the dedication and effort she has put into the care of the adults and Willow Court over the past 18 years. We are extremely proud of Elaine and feel honoured to have her as part of the team at Willow Court."
Keep up the great work Elaine!
