VSA creates new jobs in Aberdeen
Work is almost complete on a refurbished Aberdeen care home which will see a number of job vacancies for Support Workers created to deal with the extra demand created by the reopening of Ruthrieston House in Aberdeen, following a £1.5 million investment by VSA (Volunteer Service Aberdeen). As part of the refurbishment, 10 new rooms have been added. Crosby House – another care home run by VSA – has also been upgraded at a cost of £500,000 and this has served as a temporary home for the residents whilst Ruthrieston House was upgraded. This now means that VSA have 2 state-of-the-art Older Peoples Care homes with modern facilities, with lounges for entertaining guests, and beautiful gardens to walk around.
Forestgait – another VSA staffed Care Home in Aberdeen – will also see their residents moved to Crosby House to utilise these facilities and as resident levels increase, so will the need for staff numbers at various grades to provide excellent care to the residents. VSA was also recently awarded the Silver award from Investors In People. Ruthriestone house will reopen in June 2012.
