Abbeycrest Care Home Manager celebrates 10th year anniversary in post
Abbeycrest Care Home Manager based in Sonning Common has celebrated their 10th year anniversary at the home.
Sonia Silva, 32, who came from Portugal to work at Abbeycrest in 2012, was presented with gifts and received a long service certificate from a regional manager at Caring Homes Group, David Lewis.
She said: “I graduated in Nursing School, in Portugal, just before I joined Caring Homes. I believe that Caring Homes Group have all the means to support their staff to develop professionally and I am very thankful for the opportunities I have encountered so far. I feel personally rewarded by caring for others and every day I learn something new. Caring for elderly people is very fulfilling and I am very thankful for the opportunity I had to come and join the care sector in the UK.
“What I enjoy the most in my job is to be able to promote person-centred care to the [Abbeycrest] residents and support my colleagues to do the same, ensuring that the choices of the person are always considered.”
