Lydia Halliday has been appointed manager at Bupa’s Croft House care home in Essex in recognition of her efforts during the pandemic.
Lydia, who was in the middle of training in a previous role, stepped in as a support manager for various care homes in the region during the last 12 months where her hard work and determined nature has been noted by Bupa.
Commenting on her new position, Lydia said: “From my very first day as a receptionist at Bupa, I was so impressed with the high standards of care and the lovely atmosphere. I really enjoyed my job and developed a real enthusiasm for caring for people, by regularly going above and beyond for our residents.”
When asked if she had any plans for change at Croft House, Lydia said: “The goal at every Bupa care home is to provide the very best care for each resident. We want to make sure that they are happy, healthy, and having fun every day.
“I’m also very excited to involve relatives, friends and the local community in life at the home again – once it’s safe to do so. I’ve personally been sending weekly update emails to all relatives and appreciate how difficult this time has been for everyone. Therefore, it’d be wonderful to welcome friends and family back for visits, host events and activities and see everyone enjoying spending time together again at Croft House.”
