Janet celebrates 25 years with Springfield
Every year, to honour long service staff members, Springfield Healthcare organise awards and celebrations to recognise the commitment by colleagues who have given so much of their time, energy and loyalty. This year, we celebrated a milestone at Springfield Care Home – 25 years of service! Janet Payne, a valued member of our team, joined the team in 1998 and has since undertaken roles from Tea Assistant and Deputy Manager, currently in the role of Wellbeing Assistant.
Debbie Smith, HR & Admin Manager at Springfield Care Home, said “I have worked with Janet for 19 years and I can honestly say that she is one of the kindest, most dedicated people that I know, always putting others before herself. We have shared many laughs and plenty of tears together.
Residents always come first and in the next few weeks Janet will be working with our gardeners to create a lovely sensory garden with raised beds to allow the residents to enjoy the outside areas during the summer.
Recently Janet has got her wish.. to be a Grandma, which is something Janet has been waiting years for. If you talk to Janet about little Dustin, her eyes light up with joy.
On 2nd March 2023, we arranged a celebration for Janet to mark 25 years’ service with Springfield. Janet thoroughly enjoyed herself celebrating this milestone. Springfield Care Home found an angel when they employed Janet.”
On 2nd March 2023, our teams planned a very special afternoon as a surprise for Janet to congratulate her on her dedication to Springfield Care Home. Nikki Lee Clark, Specialist Services Lead at Springfield Healthcare, presented Janet with cards, gifts and flowers from staff, residents and the Springfield group.
Head of Catering and Hospitality, Mama Jean, organised a delicious buffet which the whole team tucked in too, along with a beautiful homemade cake. Janet was absolutely thrilled by the surprise. A massive thank you to everyone that helped to organise the celebrations and make this day special for Janet.
We would like to congratulate and thank Janet for her 25 years of service to Springfield Care Home.
