An international recruitment company has gifted one of Scotland’s leading providers of residential care a face visor for every member of staff in the company.

Head Medical, a recruitment business within the Taranata Group, along with their pre-employment screening partner Surecert, have delivered 1400 visors, which is the equivalent of one for every person working at Balhousie Care Group. The visors will be used for staff and for visitors to use as well for when the homes are able to re-open to non-essential visits.

With 25 homes across Aberdeenshire, Tayside, Fife and Falkirk, as well as a head office in Perth, Balhousie call their employees ‘Everyday Heroes’ and the visors are much appreciated by all the teams providing care to the most vulnerable in society during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The company would like to thank Head Medical and Hazel Dunn, Manager of their Healthcare arm, who organised for Balhousie to receive the PPE.

Jill Kerr, Group Chief Executive Officer at Balhousie Care Group said:

“The kindness of businesses large and small during this extremely difficult time has been overwhelming. We would like to thank Head Medical for their generosity in supplying so many protective face visors for our teams to use across our homes.”

Hazel added:

“The importance of the work being done in such trying conditions by all care home staff at the moment cannot be underestimated. This is just a small way in which we can show our appreciation and support for the team and residents at Balhousie.”
