Eva still loves to work
Eva was wandering the corridors looking anxious and asking what she should be doing. The Carer asked her what she would like to do. Eva said that she was supposed to be working. The Carer new that Eva used to be a house keeper, so he offered her a duster. Eva dusted the corridors for the rest of the morning and continues to do this most days.
Eva remembers she used to be a house keeper and obviously enjoyed her work, she now helps us to keep dust free at Margery Girling House!
“The team and I strive to deliver the highest standards of care to all of our customers by getting to know each individual and in turn, understand their needs and life experiences.”
I have worked at Margery Girling House for the past 12 years. During that time, I have progressed from a Carer to Team Leader, then to Deputy Manager and finally to Manager in 2016.
Before joining Orwell Housing, I worked in nursing homes, The Bartlett Hospital and Felixstowe General Hospital.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends and long walks with our dogs.
