We asked some of our staff to say a few words about their experience of working at United Health and Bunkers Hill. Here is some thoughts from Nursing Assistant Nicole who has been at Bunkers for over a decade. She is a great member of our team and her commitment to delivering great care over so many years is a testament to the great team spirit at Bunkers.

Our lovely Bunkers Hill resident, Elsie, celebrated her 102nd Birthday on the 23rd of this month.What an amazing achievement! To think she was born just after the First World War, lived through a second and has seen so many changes in her lifetime. Elsie received lots of cards and presents on her big day and we made sure we made a big fuss of her at Bunkers. She is a lovely lady who is a pleasure to have in the home and we hope she goes on to have many more Birthdays.
