Local staff member celebrates 30 years with Plas y Dderwen

AN EMPLOYEE at Plas y Dderwen Care Home in Johnstown, Carmarthen, has received a prestigious Long Service Award in celebration of working at Barchester Healthcare for 30 years.

Ann Davies, now Activities Assistant, started at Barchester in April 1994 and has worked with residents and their relatives to ensure that their needs have been met over the years.

To celebrate, the staff and residents threw a surprise party featuring live entertainment from Jimmy Elvis and a buffet and cake provided by the Plas y Dderwen team. Ann was gifted £250 of vouchers and a wonderful bouquet of flowers.

Adele Keenan, Employee Services Director at Barchester said: “I’m always pleased to hear stories about the long service of Barchester staff and am delighted Ann Davies has achieved this milestone. It is dedication like this that ensures our residents are provided with a happy place to live.”

She has demonstrated her dedication and loyalty to this home and its residents year after year. Today has been wonderful and Ann had absolutely no idea. I speak for all of us here at Plas y Dderwen, when I say that I’m looking forward to many more years of working with Ann!”
