After a long and happy career, Susan Fisher recently retired from her role at Eckington Court Nursing Home. Susan’s journey at the home began 24 years ago, when she joined as a carer.

After over four years in the role, Susan was ready for a change and transitioned into a domestic position when the opportunity arose.

To honour her retirement, Susan's colleagues at Eckington organized a surprise party, showering her with gifts, flowers, heartfelt notes from residents, and a delicious cake. The announcement of her retirement stirred a mix of emotions, bringing both joyous celebrations and bittersweet farewells among the Eckington community.

Embracing her new role Susan loved building relationships with residents, relishing every opportunity to get to know them.
