Working for the Trust

Balkerne Gardens Trust Freda Gunton Lodge

I started working at the Trust in 2015 as a Care Assistant in Freda Gunton Lodge and I am now a Nursing Assistant at Cheviot Nursing Home. My first impressions of the Trust were how welcoming the staff were and I was given a lovely tour of the home by Amy. Both homes have such a warm and welcoming feeling.  I now love working at Cheviot Nursing Home, it is so rewarding when you can provide support and care to all of our lovely residents. I enjoy listening to our residents chatting about their lives which I find fascinating. Back home in the Philippines, it is custom to look after the older generation of the family and I feel privileged that I am able to do so here. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given within the Trust and I am very proud that I have completed my level 3 QCF. In my spare time, I enjoy walking in the countryside, needlecraft and baking.
