COLLEAGUES and residents at a local convalescent surprised a nurse with a party to celebrate her quarter century of service there.

Clinical lead nurse, Christine Cameron - originally from Elgin and qualified as a nurse in 1981 - started at Cathay in July, 1996 when it was a 22-bed nursing home. Twenty five years later, Christine helps the occupants of 41 beds in the facility that has extended over that time.

Cathay manager Julie Stringfellow helped organise Christine’s party, which featured balloons, cake and buffet. Attendees adhered to social distancing and personal protection equipment guidance.

Christine was presented with flowers, chocolates and candles by Cathay resident, Rosetta Alexander.

Julie said: “Christine is a kind and caring nurse. She is totally dedicated to Cathay Care Home and supports each and every resident. Christine is always there if anyone needs help and provides quality nursing care. She supports staff just starting out in care, mentors student nurses and helps carers grow in their careers. She is a real asset to the home and the community.”
