DEDICATED staff at Overslade House care home have been honoured for their combined 25 years of service.
Care Practitioner Grace Maria Lalisan and Care Assistant Shurong Harris have received prestigious Service Awards in celebration of working for the care home’s owners, Barchester Healthcare, for 15 years and 10 years respectively.
Violeta Baesu, General Manager of Overslade House, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating a total of 25 years of loyal service with Grace and Shurong. Both have demonstrated their dedication and loyalty to this home and its residents year after year.
“I speak for all of us here at Overslade House when I say that I’m looking forward to many more years of working with Grace and Shurong!”
The care home’s Maintenance Assistant Patrick Crossin has also been praised for going ‘above and beyond’ in his role to keep residents safe and happy as he was named as Employee of the Month.
