Silverline Care, a residential care provider for the elderly that operates six nursing homes across Scotland and two nursing homes across Yorkshire, has appointed two regional operations managers to look after its Scottish and Yorkshire homes.
May Prentice has been appointed as the new regional operations manager for Scotland and Belinda Dennis (pictured) will carry out the role in Yorkshire. Silverline Care has been providing care in Scotland and Yorkshire since 2014.
Prentice’s appointment in Scotland comes as the organisation builds a support team in Glasgow, after relocating its support office from London earlier this year. She was promoted to the role after managing Silverline Care’s Spiers Care Home in Beith and brings 18 years of experience running care homes in various nursing, residential and social care settings.
Registered as a nurse in 1992, her achievements with Silverline Care include earning an improved Care Inspectorate grade for Spiers Care Home while maintaining a high occupancy and a low staff turnover.
Her internal appointment is another positive step in the organisation’s aim to become the leading residential care provider in the six communities it serves in Scotland.
Dennis’s appointment shows Silverline Care’s commitment to building a passionate team in Yorkshire to help it become the leading care home provider in the local communities it serves. A registered nurse for 43 years, she has been managing care homes since 1993 and joined Silverline Care earlier this year as manager of Linson Court Care Home in Batley. She will continue this role alongside her new post.
Both roles will include running the organisation’s IT, estates, catering and quality assurance operations in the commuties they serve.
Tim Bolot, chief executive at Silverline Care, says: “Both May and Belinda are enthusiastic, highly experienced individuals who have been excellent managers, May at our Spiers Care Home in Beith and Belinda at our Linson Court Care Home in Batley. They are constantly challenging and inspiring us to improve as an organisation, while being integral to a range of exciting new initiatives.
“Silverline is committed to developing its employees and this is a great example to the rest of the team that there are career opportunities within the organisation. Both applied for and got this role as part of a thorough recruitment process, and I am delighted that May and Belinda will now be able to apply the same expertise and positive energy that we have been privileged enough to see in action at their respected care homes to a wider role for the company. I am confident these appointments will have a massive and positive impact across all our care homes in Scotland and Yorkshire and I look forward to supporting both of them moving forward.”
May Prentice, regional operations manager for Scotland, says: “Silverline Care is a fantastic organisation to work for and I’m embarking on this new role at what is a very exciting time for the company, with the relocation of our support office to Glasgow, which has brought all our services under one roof. I can’t wait to get started in the role!”
Belinda Dennis, regional operations manager for Yorkshire, says: “I look forward to working with Tim and the senior management team in this new role as we continue to strive to provide the best possible level of care for our residents in our Yorkshire homes, as well as creating a great working environment for all of our employees.”
