CARE assistant Carol Glover waved goodbye to 35 years of work at the same retirement home in Sheffield.
Carol, now 63, started work at Burnt Tree Croft nursing home in Netherthorpe back in 1976 when she was 28.
Three-and-a-half decades on, she marked her retirement with flowers, gifts of jewellery and vouchers, and a send-off from residents and staff.
The grandmother-of-five, from Mushroom Lane, Upperthorpe, now hopes to spend more time with her husband, friends and family.
The home’s manager Kuldip Mejer told The Star: “Carol is such a lovely and pleasant lady and, because she is from the local area herself, she already knew most of the residents personally from the neighbourhood. They always liked her very much.”
Burnt Tree Croft caters for 40 permanent residents, mostly in their 80s and 90s, and eight to ten visitors at its day centre. This year the home on St Philips Road celebrates its 40th anniversary.
