2019 Care Practitioner of the Year


Marie McIovr from Overslade House

Marie McIvor, Senior Regional Care Practitioner, has recently been crowned as the national winner of the Care Practitioner of the Year Award at the 2019 Barchester Care Awards.

The judge for the category, Barchester’s Julia Atherton, Director of Nursing, said of the home that “Marie is extremely dedicated and willing to assist at any time. She often stays late to ensure that everyone is safe and well cared for and that the Unit is running smoothly. Marie feels that the greatest contribution she makes is treating all the clients as though they were members of her own family, and the feedback I received about Marie demonstrated how much of a positive impact she makes on those she care for with her wonderful ability to engender trust within the clients, their families and the staff team. Marie is nothing short of an asset to the team at the home and to Barchester.”
