Angela Gardner

Senior Carer

Angie's uncompromising dedication to her work is an inspiration to all staff; not only has she welded a team together on the Dementia Care Unit, but she does not hesitate to help other staff throughout the home. On many occasions she has gone the extra mile by returning to the home on her days off, or on leave, to help out when there is a problem. Angie has served residents in the home for twenty years.

In 2016, Angie was named as a Divisional Winner for Memory Lane Champion in the Barchester Care Awards.
