Long Service leads to Top Care at Park House

A carers story .................

Park House Top Carer - Ruth Woodward

Ruth is from Bulwell, Nottingham and has worked for Eastgate Care, at Park House, for over 20 years, completing all her care training with the company. Care work started as a child minder, to fit in with raising a family, nurturing and helping individuals came naturally and although Ruth has qualification for senior care positions she prefers to stay with the rudimentary care that she loves. Working for Eastgate has meant a secure, stable income for two decades, with consistent training and updates over the years.  What matters to Ruth, in the home, is that the residents are given quality daily care and understanding by their carer.

‘I especially enjoy end of life care and making a difference to my residents, who become as important to me as my own family – remember I often spend more time with my residents than my family. In the early days the flexible hours helped me as a parent and I have not wanted a change of career since then as I love my job.’

Ruth has known many residents during her career at Park House, some of whom come to stay for what they believe would be a short time and who are still happily with us many years later. One such resident is Ian who has lived at Park House now for 12 years; when he first arrived he would only drink water and lie in bed, special attention from Ruth and the other team members meant that Ian very gradually ate a little more, they helped him build up strength, aided healing sores, so that eventually Ian was able to sit up in bed and subsequently use a wheelchair to get out into the Park House garden, which he now enjoys at all times of year.

Ruth said, I consider Park House my home and the people here are my extended family.  I help prepare a clean room for my residents, so they feel at home and loved and I help new employees by sharing my experience with them.’ Who wouldn’t want Ruth to look after themselves or their family?

For anyone wondering about a career in care it really can offer you flexibility, stability and a rewarding job, for those who care.

Ruth - home from home at Park House

Look out for more stories about our great  long serving staff and a place called home.
