A member of the care team at Radcliffe Gardens nursing home in Pudsey, near Leeds, recently celebrated 25 year’s service.

Senior carer and activity co-ordinator Joanne Baxendale marked her career anniversary in style with a party for residents and staff.

“I’m so lucky to be in a job I truly enjoy,” said Joanne.

“The residents and the team here at Radcliffe are like my extended family, the last 25 years have been extremely memorable.”

Joanne, who was an auxiliary worker at Leeds General Infirmary before starting at the home was described by the home’s manger, Jean Thorpe, as being ‘very passionate about her work and Radcliffe Gardens, genuinely enjoying all aspects of her job.’

“She is a real asset to the team, constantly coming up with new activity ideas for the residents,” said Jean.

“We’re grateful to her for her long-standing service – here’s to many more!”

Radcliffe Gardens, which provides accommodation for up to 20 older people, is owned and operated by Mosaic Community Care.
