The Home is staffed by a dedicated team of Registered Nurses, Senior Care Officers, Care Assistants, an Administrative Assistant, Cooks, Catering Assistants, Housekeepers, and a maintenance manager.
They are led by Partner and Business Manager Sandra Butler. Her many years of experience are reflected not only in the smooth running of the Home, but also in the calibre of her staff.
All Care Homes in Scotland have been graded in 2008 by the Care Commission. The themes graded were Quality of Life Experience, Quality of Environment, Quality of Staffing & Quality of Management. Cooriedoon was delighted to achieve grades of 5 across the board. To see our latest report and grades, please visit the Care Inspectorate at www.careinspectorate.com.
In November 2008 Sandra & Cooriedoon were nominated "Single Care Home Operator of the Year" and were one of the 3 finalists at Scottish Care's Award Ceremony presented by TV's Kaye Adams. This was an enormous accolade for the Home and completed our 20 Year celebrations. (pictured is Sandra between the other 2 finalists with Kaye Adams to the right).
And if that accolade is not enough, in July 2012 we achieved for the 5th time our Investors in People Recognition which awards companies for excellence in staff training and development and to top it off our founder, Mrs Butler, received an MBE in the Queen's 2011 New Year Honours List for Older People Services on the Isle of Arran. We are so proud of this Honour as it recognises the hard work and dedication that we put into Cooriedoon all year long and all staff can share this Honour.
