A Colleague at HC-One’s Stadium Court care home in Staffordshire, is marking a huge 25 years working at the home.
Paul Tunnicliffe started working at Stadium Court on January 22 1996 at the age of 37.
The home was officially opened later that year on November 5 1996 by none other than Sir Stanley Matthews, CBE.
Over the last 25 years, Paul has been involved with plenty at Stadium Court. He likes to help with the Activities Colleagues too by making and mending items.
In his 25 years at the home, Paul has seen a lot of changes and a few new owners under the management of three companies before the home eventually came under the ownership of HC-One.
When he started in 1996, Colleagues preferred to be address as ‘Matron’ and nurses dressed in full uniform. Since then, the home has garnered a much more friendly, relaxed approach where Colleagues can get to know and have a laugh with Residents as they offer them support and care.
Paul is well respected by Colleagues and Relatives and is often described at a ‘Top Man’ by Residents who love chatting to him.
Stadium Court Home Manager, Maureen Southern, remarked, “If you every need to know anything ask Paul as he hoards everything!”
