“Star” care assistant gets surprise note during hospital visit

By 30th May, 2019 Press Releases Comments Off

A CARE home worker received a surprise note while accompanying a resident to an appointment at Nottingham City Hospital.

Helen Squire, a care assistant at Longmoor Lodge Care Home, in Sandiacre, was chaperoning resident Frank Teate, who was at the hospital to see a cardiologist.

While waiting with Frank, cardiology department manager Jackie Richardson approached Helen and presented her with a postcard emblazoned with “Thank You – You’re a Star”.

On the other side, Jackie had written: “For being kind, which I consider one of the greatest attributes for any human being and expect in my staff.

“And for caring. You clearly enjoy your work and this is a pleasure to see.”

Helen, who has worked at Longmoor Lodge Care Home for four years, said: “I often go to hospital appointments with residents as a chaperone.

“I was astonished when we were approached by the department manager and given such a lovely note. I was just doing my job but it was a very kind of her.”
