Here at Glenside, we pride ourselves on the length of time some of our staff members have worked for us. This year we introduced the Long Service Award ceremony, following up on an earlier initiative called the Length of Service Annual Leave Bonus to recognise our staff’s length of service and commitment.

In 2016, over 100 permanent staff had worked for Glenside for five years or longer, with more than half of these having been at Glenside for more than 10 years. Twelve staff had each worked for Glenside over 20 years, with a total of 282 working years at Glenside between them!

Glenside staff organised a cake, coffee and craft sale, with items that the service users had up-cycled and decorated. Items included bird boxes, tables, chairs and small cabinets which were sold to re-invest in more items for the group to work on.

This year we introduced the Long Service Award to celebrate the hard work and commitment of the staff who have worked for Glenside for five years or more. Here is the Administration team and Ancillary staff receiving their awards.

In 2016, there were 104 people who had worked for Glenside for five years or longer, with over half of these having been at Glenside for more than 10 years! Here are some photos of the staff receiving their certificate and personal gift to recognise their loyalty of service to the company and equally importantly, their involvement in providing consistent high quality care to our service users.A wonderful achievement.

Initially admitted to Salisbury District Hospital in April 2016, having survived a complication from an advanced stage of diabetes, Gary could not remember the 48 hours prior to waking up in hospital. At that time he was unable to speak or to move and it wasn’t clear what his prospects were for recovery.

However within three weeks, miraculously (according to Gary) he began to speak again and although he had lost a lot of muscle tone, he was able to mobilise again.

Gary was admitted to Glenside in May for short-term intensive rehabilitation, after his partner who had done some online research discussed the possibility with the SDH team of a referral to Glenside as a local specialist provider of neuro rehabilitation.

Congratulations to the Old Vicarage staff team

Congratulations to the Old Vicarage staff team for winning two Star Service for Excellence Awards.

Binny Dixey, Rehab Assistant on Old Vicarage, was awarded the Star Service for Excellence Award in September. She was nominated by another member of staff for “her exceptional work with a patient with very difficult behaviours. Her person centred approach has really worked wonders.”

This is following the Old Vicarage staff team as a whole being awarded the Star Service for Excellence Award earlier in the year for receiving so many compliments from best interest assessors, commissioners, advocates and family members to highlight the level of expertise in managing extremely challenging behaviours in such a least restrictive, robust and well thought out manner.
