Care workers thanked for long service
Workers at family-run firm Macklin Care Homes have been honoured by the business for their care of residents over the last 30 years.
Almost 100 employees from five nursing homes within the group were recognised for their contributions to the care of 267 residents at an anniversary event at the Lodge Hotel in Coleraine.
Macklin Care Homes, which opened its first home in Northern Ireland 30 years ago, operates five homes - Arlington in south Belfast, Park Manor in Dunmurry, Ratheane in Coleraine, Milesian Manor in Magherafelt and Leabank in Ballycastle.
Managing director Gareth Macklin said that a number of employees had been with the company for 25 years.
