“I like the atmosphere at Braeside House , it's friendly and the staff all get on well.

"Seeing someone smile means I’ve had a good day. I’ve built up good relationships with the families of residents, and they have become important to me. It’s rewarding to being able to make a difference to someone’s life.

"When I’m not here I have two dogs that I like to walk. I go to bingo to relax! I also love to read.”
