Moorehall Lodge staff members named as finalists in the NHI Care Awards
It’s a double celebration for Moorehall Lodge this week as staff members in both Drogheda and Ardee have been named as finalists in the Nursing Homes Ireland Care Awards 2016.
In a first national nomination for Moorehall Lodge Drogheda, Director of Care Caroline Day is named among the three contenders for the NHI Director of Nursing/Person in Charge Award.
And Moorehall Lodge Ardee’s former national Carer of the Year winner Chrissie Barron has been shortlisted for a second time – this year in the NHI Nursing Homes End of Life Care Award.
Caroline and Chrissie will now go forward to the prestigious national awards ceremony, which will be held in Dublin on Wednesday November 16.
Over 300 nominations were put forward from people in communities across Ireland for the NHI Care Awards’ ten award categories.
NHI represents over 400 nursing homes throughout Ireland, and the fact that just 28 people have been shortlisted for the finals shows the scale of Moorehall Living’s achievement.
This follows on from 2015 when Moorehall Lodge Ardee’s Carol McLoughlin, Michelle Watters and Breege Conlon all took top honours at the prestigious national awards.
“We are thrilled to reach the final three in these categories – they are a great reflection on the unique care that all the staff at Moorehall Lodge give,” said Caroline, on behalf of the shortlisted finalists from the Moorehall Living Group.
“We are all very passionate about our work and are very proud of the unique and warm care environment we have created where people really flourish.”
Moorehall Living Chief Executive Sean McCoy was delighted with the news of the double nomination.
“This recognition on a national stage means so much to Caroline, Chrissie and all of us at Moorehall Lodge.
“We are proud that both our residents and staff think of Moorehall Lodge as home, and our whole team are embodiments of that ethos.”
