10 Year Work Anniversary 

29th March

Shirmin and Nicole started their journey working at Swarthmore on the same day, 10 years ago.

Shirmin  - "I started working as a carer and was promoted within no time at all to become a Senior Carer. It wasn’t my intention to become a Senior Carer.  I was approached by Agata/Claire, Deputy and Home Manager as a position became available.  I am very passionate about giving care to the elderly. My focus is immediate as soon as I walk through the door. My morning shifts consist of making sure everyone is washed, dressed, receive their medication and a nourishing breakfast is served. Its important to make sure that the residents are happy and well cared for, this is my passion"'.  

Shirmin also enjoys working as a team with her colleagues; ensuring the day goes as smooth as possible.

Nicole always had a passion for care. Her sister needed care from a young age, so she naturally grew up where everyone helped to provide love and care for her over the years. Unfortunately her sister passed away and Nicole felt she wanted to continue caring for people. Swarthmore felt like home from home and that’s why she continues to work in care. “When you work in one place for a long time you naturally become part of resident’s family. I feel privileged to care for our residents; a familiar face is important to anyone receiving care”. I believe it helps the transition for anyone moving to a care home. Building relationships helps people settle.

As a care team we work well together, there are times when things become difficult, but we pull together to make situations as smooth as possible.
