Goodbye and thank you, Denise Lyford.
Sadly, after 15 years with the Avens group at 39 Denford Road, Deputy Manager Denise Lyford has taken retirement. Denise's last day with us was 20th June.
Whilst we were surprised by this news we fully support Denise's decision and wish her the best of health for the future. We hope that Denise will continue to visit us regularly and join us this summer for the fete.
Denise Lyford has dedicated her working life to the home since 2001, beginning with us as a support worker quickly rising to manager. Denise guided the residential care home through many successful inspections and most importantly supported those who live there to enjoy their lives. Her years of experience as a care worker and a manager were invaluable to the team at Ringstead. For this we thank-you Denise!
This April, Denise took a step back and was acting as Deputy to support her long-time colleague Michelle who stepped-up to position of manager. We know that our staff will continue to provide the excellent level of care that Ringstead is known for and support Michelle during this period of change.
