A day of commemorations at East Sussex care homeColleagues at HC-One’s The Polegate care home in East Sussex enjoyed a day of celebrations as a couple of their fellow Colleagues reached milestones and important life events.

On 18th May, Colleagues celebrated Margarita's 10-year service award and her last day working at the home. Margarita (pictured right) started working at the Polegate as a Nurse in 2011. She has dedicated many years to The Polegate care home and the Residents who lived there, so Colleagues used this time, on his last day, to thank her and wish her the best in her future endeavours. 

All staff and Residents gathered in the lounge and enjoyed a spread of food and drinks in celebration of Margarita's last day at The Polegate.

As well as this, Colleagues also celebrated Care Assistant Hayley's final day before going onto maternity leave. All staff and Residents gathered in the lounge to wish Hayley good luck with her pregnancy and maternity leave. 

Situated in Polegate, on the edge of Eastbourne, The Polegate is a friendly care home with 44 beds, offering nursing care.
