We believe everybody
deserves to enjoy life,
whatever their age
Friday marked a milestone for Enliven’s Longview Home in Tawa.
Staff and residents recognised 38 long serving staff members who, in total, have worked at the home for more than 450 years.
Longview Home manager, Olwyn Cunningham is delighted to have so many staff members who have dedicated many years of their lives to supporting the elders at Longview Home.
“We’re really lucky that almost 65 per cent of the staff here at Longview Home have been on board for more than five years, and many have been part of the team for well over ten!” says Olwyn.
“It’s such a benefit for our residents to have familiar faces supporting them on a day-to-day basis.”
This year, Longview Home Health Care Assistant, Jenny Perez is celebrating 31 years on staff.
But Jenny’s not alone in her long service. The home also recognised six members of staff who have spent more than 20 years as part of the Longview family, along with 15 other who have been at the home for over a decade.
Each staff member was awarded with a badge and certificate in recognition of their long service.
