CARE South hosted a party to mark a home care manager celebrating 30 years of working for the not-for-profit organisation which provides high-quality residential and home care across the south of England.

Sarah Broom, who leads the team in the Care South at Home Somerset office in Crewkerne, was joined by her colleagues, including Simon Bird, chief executive, and Martin Ross, director of Care at Home, for the special event.

Sarah said: “I have had an incredible experience working for Care South and I am so proud of all the staff I have worked with and continue to work with.

“Many members of the team have been working for Care South for almost as long as I have been here, and I think that highlights how much of an enjoyable place this is to work for.

“I look forward to supporting the team for many years to come.”

Sarah was thrilled to be presented with flowers and a card to thank her for her service.

Simon Bird, Chief Executive of Care South, said: “We are extremely grateful to Sarah for the dedicated contribution she has made over the past 30 years to our clients whom we care for and our colleagues who provide this vital day-to-day service.

“She’s a ray of sunshine in our Crewkerne office and a great support and friend to many of our clients, as well as her colleagues.”

Angie Sayer was also honoured at the party and was presented with a bouquet and a card on her retirement having worked as a carer for Care South at Home for the past 10 years.
