Pat calls it a day after more than 22 years

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Sycamores senior care assistant Pat Marro was shocked when staff and residents surprised her on her last day before retirement. After 22-and-a-half years Pat had mixed feelings – excited to start enjoying her retirement but sad to be leaving The Sycamores care home in Hyde, Greater Manchester, operated by Meridian Healthcare. “A care assistants job is not one where you can just go home, the residents and staff are like extended family to me,” said Pat. Friends, family, residents and colleagues past and present gathered to surprise Pat. “Pat is one of the nicest people you could ever meet, and is popular with residents and staff with her warm personality and sense of humour, we’ll miss her,” said manager Lynn Davidson. Care assistant Donna Hayward added: “Pat is a brilliant mentor, she has done herself and The Sycamores proud during her time here, we all wish her a happy retirement.”
