Mark Girdler

Residents' Chairman

Hello, I’m Mark and I have been elected as Chairman of our Residents' Committee. The committee meets every two months and we make lifestyle choices for the home. 

I’ve lived at Corrina Lodge since 2017, and I have had so much support with activities that it has engaged my interest in all sorts of ways. My interest in art has resurfaced and I now pursue this hobby actively. I also really enjoy taking photos around the home using my iPad, which get uploaded on to our TV in the reception area and are a great talking point for visitors. 

As a spokesperson for our community, I enjoy helping others, welcoming visitors and getting involved with all aspects of life here at the home. I come from a very large family; I am one of nine siblings. My family and friends visit often and have recognised that living at Corrina Lodge has greatly enhanced my life.

Receptionist

Hello, my name is Amanda and I'm the Receptionist here at Corrina Lodge. I started here as a volunteer in 2013 and, after a year, I was offered the role of Receptionist. 

Previously, I spent 41 years working with the Metropolitan Police and was able to transfer my skills to the care sector.

I'm proud to work here alongside my professional colleagues. I like to stay and help at fantastic events, as I can then spend more time with residents and their families.

Woody

PAT Dog

Residents adore our PAT dog, Woody. He's big, soft and fluffy – nobody can resist him! Woody comes to visit weekly with his wonderful owner, Lisa. They visit many residents in their rooms or whilst they're relaxing around the home. It's so lovely watching someone's face light up when they see him, or stroke his beautiful, soft fur.
