A care expert from Anstruther has been recognised for her efforts in keeping older people active and helping them live happy and fulfilled lives.
Louise Perry, who works as an activity coordinator at Bupa’s Balnacarron Care Home in St Andrews, was nominated by colleagues for her work in developing varied social programmes for residents - as well as for her caring and friendly nature.
Louise was praised for constantly going above and beyond her duties - one recent example of this was when she took a resident who had a lifelong interest in railways to a local railway exhibition.
In addition, Louise also gives up her free time in order to fundraise for the residents’ social activities fund.
The judges picked Louise for Thecarehome.co.uk Award for Excellence in Care at the 2014 Bupa Care Home Awards for her dedication to her role at the Fife care home.
Louise said: “I am thrilled to have won this award.
“It’s made even more special knowing that my fellow colleagues took the time to nominate me.
“Balnacarron is a special place to work and I will enjoy celebrating this wonderful news with residents and staff in the home.”
