The start of a new decade has seen the start of a new life for one of our long-time carers who spent more than 16 years working with us.
Pamela Aberdeen said she has ‘loved every minute’ working with our team and she and will miss all of her clients as she heads into her new life of retirement.
“I really have loved every minute of my job and they really are my family. I have had some wonderful clients and will miss all of them. I loved being a carer and would recommend it to anyone,” she said.
A finalist in the recent Gill Chase Awards, Pamela was delighted to be recognised by those she cared for as they nominated her for the award. She joined her colleagues at our special event at Fakenham Racecourse in December.
Pamela really has been a wonderful ambassador for Extra Hands and we are very sorry she is retiring, although it is very much deserved. She is much-loved by everyone she has worked with and we all know how much she will be missed by everyone - from all of us in the office to the service users she has been seeing on a regular basis.
Pamela has become friends with many of the service users and their families she has worked with over the years, and said that working very closely with others gave her a huge insight into their lives.
She has two daughters and four grandchildren and previously worked for the Berol company at the former King’s Lynn factory for 17 years and has always lived in Norfolk.
