Joyful Return for Nurse Lydia

A much-loved registered nurse who worked with a Shropshire care home provider for 19 years before retiring a few months ago, has returned to help her ex-colleagues in this time of need.

Sue Austin Chief Operating Officer at Morris Care which operates six nursing homes in Shropshire and Cheshire, was overjoyed to welcome Lydia Tyanase back to the fold as she started work at Radbrook Nursing Home in Shrewsbury this morning:

“It’s a joy to see Lydia back here today. Lydia’s nursing experience, clinical expertise and empathetic nature all make her a fantastic nurse. She assisted with the guidance and training of some of our most proficient nurses and she is admired by so many. I know everyone will join me in welcoming her back with open arms, especially some of our residents who built such lovely relationships with her.”

Lydia retired last year after nearly two decades of nursing with Morris Care. She started as a registered nurse and progressed to Team Leader, Deputy Nurse Manager, Home Manager and then finally Clinical Services Manager. Lydia led the company’s Oversees Nursing Programme and its Nursing Assistant programme.

She commented: “It just felt right to return to Morris Care at this concerning time. I owe so much to the business; I wouldn’t be who I am today without them and so I’m really glad to be back on the floor, caring for residents and part of the workforce.”

The care home company has had visiting restrictions in place for some time now to protect its residents’ safety and wellbeing as much as possible. Spirits remain high in its homes as the staff pull together to keep residents from feeling lonely. FaceTime and Skype calls are regularly scheduled with family members.

Morris Care is calling on all kind and compassionate individuals to join them on the care frontline. For those who may be out of employment or for those who really want to help where it’s needed most, there are permanent and temporary opportunities in various roles – including Care Assistants, Kitchen Assistants and Stewards. No experience is needed, just a kind heart with a passion for caring for residents. Visit www.morriscare.co.uk/careers to see all of the current vacancies.
