Last week our quarterly Golden Moment at Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale was awarded to Gill Seddon, Lifestyle Support Leader who recently went above and beyond to support a resident through a very difficult and sad time.
After the unexpected loss of her son, Gill comforted and supported a resident at Birch Green to help her with the trying time ahead.
After helping with the funeral arrangements, which were difficult due to the distance involved, Gill was able to set up a video link so the resident could be a part of her son’s funeral on the day.
The following week Gill along with Ali, Financial Administrator travelled down to Wolverhampton to collect the precious ashes of the lady’s son and bring him home, back to his mum.
Birch Green then held a lovely remembrance service in the remembrance garden with the help of Rick the local Minister from the Ecumenical Centre.
After the remembrance service our special lady was surrounded by all her Birch Green Care Home family as they held a special luncheon to pay their respects and to support her.
Thank you Gill for going above and beyond, your caring nature is one for us all to behold.
