Balhousie Care Group calls its employees Everyday Heroes – and for good reason.

Liz Thomson, who just celebrated her 80th birthday, is an Activities Coordinator at Balhousie Huntly care home in Aberdeenshire. She is busting plenty of myths surrounding older workers and care staff.

She leads the events calendar in the Aberdeenshire residential home for dozens of residents, organising daily activities like afternoon teas, knitting clubs and gardening sessions.

And she does it all with a spring in her step.

“I have tried retiring before but I like working!” says Liz. “I really enjoy the time I spend with the residents. I’ve known some of them for nine years now, so organising and leading activities is always enjoyable.”

Richard Lake, Balhousie Huntly’s Home Manager, continues: “People often don’t realise the different staff roles that comprise a care home team. And as Liz demonstrates, the Huntly team is a diverse one.

“Just as every one of our residents has different needs, so each of our staff can have different needs in terms of their hours, flexibility and career progression.”

Balhousie Care Group operates 26 care facilities across six regions of Scotland.

As an award-winning, growing company, Balhousie is always on the lookout for like-minded people to join its teams.
