A new receptionist at The Grand

5 July 2018

One of our lovely residents at The Grand – Sheila Shard – has been helping out front of house.  Sheila has early onset of Dementia but this hasn’t deterred her and she has been helping out for 15 minutes a day on the reception desk with a little support from our usual receptionist Jess.

Home Manager, Yana Whitehouse, said: “Sheila was really keen to lend a hand and expressed an interest in our reception desk.  We gave her an informal chat for the post before her first shift which involved helping our receptionist Jess out for 15 minutes – they both loved it!”
