Unfortunately I wasn’t able to care for my mother, so I feel privileged to be able to cook and care for all the residents in Anastasia Lodge.”

Our training needs are always maintained so that we are able to give the best quality care to our residents.
I always give the best care to our residents with respect and dignity. I ensure that I give them the love they need from us.

I really like to help and volunteer my support, which is one of the reasons why I love my work. I really enjoy sports, so encourage the residents to do their exercises to improve their mobility. As the Activities Officer, I try to create a group spirit and encourage everyone to join in the activities according to their interests. I try to have a calm and harmonious atmosphere in the lounge.”
