A care home in King’s Langley has bid farewell to its office team who all are taking a well-deserved retirement.
Friars Mead residential care home, managed by the Abbeyfield Hertfordshire Residential Care Society (AHRCS), said goodbye to Clare Alderson, Linda Wilson and Senior Carer Tina Southcott recently.
The trio has collectively worked for Friars Mead for more than 60 years were treated to an evening social event. Food and drinks were catered for, so no one had to work which made for an enjoyable night for all staff and residents albeit a little sad.
The leavers were swarmed with flowers, gifts, and an abundance of cards, many individuals from staff and residents as so many wanted to express their gratitude for their hard work and dedication towards the staff and residents of the home in Kings Langley.
When asked to sum up her 24 years in one sentence Claire Anderson simply replied: “Great” joking that she had managed it in one word. Linda described it as a wonderful experience. Care Manager Sharon Bell described their departure as “an emotional day after many years of friendship”.
Despite the mixed feelings Geoff Fairfield, chair of the AHRCS, added, how proud he is that Friars Mead continues to have loyal long-standing members of staff making the home a great environment for both residents and employees.
Friars Mead regularly looks for the right people to join the home with both part time and full-time roles available. For more information contact the home at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01923 270 304.
