Hear Sandra Milton’s thoughts on her role as Care Assistant at Lukestone Care Home:

“When you love what you do, you tend to feel a sense of purpose and belonging and that’s how I feel about Lukestone. I feel I am working with professionals that I can learn from.

Recently I got a job offer at the hospital, but when reality kicked-in I realised that I couldn’t leave Lukestone. Also, when you have a very understanding Manager it makes it very hard to leave.

Karen has been very caring and understanding when it comes to work. I am currently five months pregnant and as soon as I told Karen she was willing to put me on easier floors.

We have a very good team of staff who work well together which helps us to provide person-centred care.”
