Renaissance Care celebrated two finalists in last night’s National Care Awards on Thursday 25th November.
The annual event is usually held in London with around 3000 attendees. 2020 was the first year the awards were held virtually and continued to attract viewers from throughout the UK, celebrating the very best in care.
Louise Barnett, managing director of Renaissance Care was finalist in the Leadership category. Louise is supportive in her guidance and wholeheartedly believes that empowering her team and the people throughout the homes is the greatest asset. Louise said: ‘This year, we are celebrating the entire workforce more than ever. Their actions and bravery have undoubtedly saved many lives from this awful virus.’
Executive Chairman of Renaissance care, Robert Kilgour, was also finalist in the care Personality of the year category. Robert was nominated for his contribution to lobbying for better care and attention for social care workers and residents within care homes. He has regularly brought the various governments to attention for their actions throughout the COVID pandemic and has continually pushed for better support and protection to those living and working within care homes.
As one of the only care groups representing Scotland at this year’s national event, we are exceptionally proud of both finalists, however, as a group we are exceptionally proud of ever single person within our homes. This has been an incredibly hard year within care homes and their resilience, their passion and thirst for life is nothing short of inspiring.
