Celebrating 25 years of long-service is David Christian, Head of Domestic at Melbourne House Care Home.  

25 years ago, local lad David Christian walked into Melbourne House Care Home looking for employment. A discussion with matron led to him starting 16 weeks of training and as they say the rest is history.

Starting as a carer David spent 12 years supporting and caring for those who have made Melbourne House Care Home their home.

From carer to kitchen assistant, laundry and maintenance, there isn’t a role in the care home David hasn’t had – apart from manager of course!

Born and bred in Deanwood David should have retired three years ago but being so close to where he lives has proved too much of a temptation for a job and life he loves – helping people.

David says: “I like to be around people, I love to help people, and I want to be there for people. I really enjoy my current role and loved my previous roles. I do my best every day and feel rewarded for it by making a difference to so many lives. I can’t stay away; I just love what I do.”

Alicja Szefler, Manager at Melbourne House Care Home says: “25 years of service – that couldn’t go without thanks and a celebration. We were so honoured to have surprised David and celebrate his dedication to Melbourne House Care Home. What an amazing person you are David.

“There is only one David, his personality is just a part of our home, it’s one big family here and David is like the cheeky Uncle who makes us laugh when we need it but also rolls up his sleeves to get the jobs done. Thank you for everything you have done for us., you are a very special person.”
