Marchglen Care Centre are thrilled to announce Home Manager Anne-Marie Mckeich has been selected as a finalist for the Positive Impact Award at the Scottish Care Home Awards 2022.
Nominated by Regional Manager Gina Small, the award recognises people who have made a significant and sustained contribution to the care home sector.
Anne-Marie began her career in the care sector in 1980 as a Care Assistant working with people with Learning Disabilities, qualifying as a Registered Nurse for Learning Disabilities in 1986. Throughout the years Anne-Marie has succeeded in a number of roles including Staff Nurse and Regional Manager, before joining Marchglen as Home Manager in 2021.
Anne-Marie has been able to demonstrate how genuine involvement with residents and their families in the design and delivery of their care enables residents maximise their independence and are able to live vibrant lives in their local communities. She recognises that positive outcomes for individuals vary and where small, incremental achievements are evidenced as they are as much to be celebrated as those achieved on a larger scale.
Whilst she loves solving problems, her passion remains making a positive difference to the lives of people, irrespective of where they are on their care journey. She feels she has met her niche with aria care and particularly enjoys the challenges of supporting people with very differing needs within the same care setting.
Gina said: “Anne-Marie is a highly visible leader who takes time to understand the strengths and development needs within in her team. She encourages and motivates staff to stretch themselves. She is values driven, putting the residents and service users at the heart of her planning and delivery of care. She is someone who juggles multiple priorities but has a knack of making people feel they are the priority.”
The Scottish Care Home Awards will take place on Friday 18th November at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
Wishing Anne-Marie the best of luck!
