Carol Bourne, Manager

“I have been working in older persons’ care since 1987 and first joined Friends of the Elderly in 2003.

When I started nursing I worked in many different areas but I found my calling when I joined my first nursing care home. Older people are fascinating and interesting; they have so much to give. I often find myself feeling humbled by the people in the home. They have had such amazing lives and it is great fun working with them.

The Old Vicarage is a real home, the staff and residents see themselves as a family.”
