On the 4th of October we had the chance to celebrate something very special at Cumberland View Aged Care Living, Windmill Court.
Three of our most valued staff Sylvia, Helen and Joan achieved 25 years of dedicated service.
Staff, residents and family members joined together for afternoon tea and champagne to pay tribute and give thanks for their long-standing care, support and friendship.
These wonderful ladies started work at Cumberland View just after the doors opened in 1991 with one of their first tasks being to transfer 11 resident from a home in Surrey Hills and to help them settle in.
Since then, Joan, Helen and Sylvia have cared for hundreds of residents with personal hygiene, meals, assisting residents to get dressed or ready for bed and providing ongoing companionship.
As a gesture of thanks, they were presented with a 25 years of service commemorative plaque, flowers and vouchers for a night and dinner at the Langham Hotel and a Ticketek event of their choice.
