Lorna from meet the teamLorna  

Lorna, also known as Lorna of the laundry, joined our Norfolk care homes in 2013, when she was just 18. Since Lorna has worked here she has grown with confidence and relishes her role as a laundry assistant. Lorna is great at encouraging the residents to join in with the folding of the laundry, giving them an opportunity to have a good chat while being active at the same time.


Emily from meet the teamEmily  

Emily is our song bird, she’s often heard singing around the care home and even sings at some of the care home events. Emily started with us as a part time laundry assistant, this enabled her to study performing music, but soon realised how much she enjoyed being with the residents. At the age of 18 Emily moved from laundry to become a care assistant, she has now got her sights on becoming a senior carer and to start nursing.
