Celebrating Nurses Day: Rachel enjoys her nursing work placement

We’re continuing to showcase our amazing nurses this Nurses Day.

Rachel Ali-Evans, who’s been working at Tŷ Penrhos Care Home on a student placement, tells us why she’s enjoyed working in one of our nursing homes.

“This placement has been one of my favourites so far. Tŷ Penrhos has such a lovely feel to it, and residents love living here.

I never considered a career in a nursing home as a nurse, and I think that’s mainly because until now I never understood the role of a nurse in this environment.

Colleagues have really supported my learning experience; especially my supervisor Angela, my assessor Machala and Geraint the home manager. I like the fact that I can spend time with the patients and talk to them.

It has opened my eyes to a potential career as a care home nurse.”

Our hardworking and dedicated nurses have been invaluable to our services, overcoming enormous challenges over the past two years. We thank all our nurses, and are proud to have such amazing care colleagues.
