Dawn Budgen from Care South’s Dorset House care home in Poole, recently celebrated an impressive 25 years of continuous service at the home. She was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a thank you card by Chief Executive, Simon Bird.

Dawn said: “I thoroughly enjoy working at Dorset House and everything about it, from the fantastic team to the residents in our care. My job is to ensure that all rooms are kept to the highest standard for residents, and I also enjoy working a few evening shifts in the dining room. It is wonderful interacting and getting to know residents in our care on a more personal level. It’s such a rewarding job, I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
