CARE ASSISTANT

Wendy started at St Faith’s 42 years ago when she was 17 and has been working there as a Care Assistant ever since. She is the longest serving member of staff and has been with the charity for well over half of its history!

Wendy explains why she has stayed at Lilian Faithfull Care, “It’s because it’s a charity rather than being done for profit and money making gain. I think they’ve done really well. There have been lots of alterations for the better and we always have all the equipment here, everything you need.”

After 34 years of working nights Wendy now works days on the middle floor. “In the bedrooms there is a cloud on the wall which has lots of snippets about the residents and their lives, it means you can always have a quick glance and learn about them.”

When asked for her advice for those thinking of working in care now, she replies: “Definitely do it and take up all the opportunities that Lilian Faithfull Care offer now.”
