WATCH this piece to camera from Ina telling us what it is she loves so much about living at Haslington Lodge Care Home.
The former Queen Alexandra Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) nurse spent a lot of her life at the sharp end of military life and boosts about her successful Army career, even learning unarmed combat.
But we see a softer side as she waxed lyrical about life at Haslington Lodge Care Home when asked by Activities Coordinator Tracey Crittenden what she liked about living at Haslington Lodge:
“I couldn't think of a better place. It’s everything I wouldhave liked and more.”
“It’s the friendliness of staff, knowing if you have a problem it is dealt with. Feel safe and cared for. Couldn’t ask for better, and that is genuine.”
Sally Ann Briggs, Manager at Haslington Lodge Care Home says: “Ina is certainly no pushover, which is why listening to Ina talk about what it is she love so much about making Haslington Lodge her home warms my heart. It’s also good to know we meet with Ina’s very high standards!”
