Nurses’ Day is a chance to recognise and reward the important work and dedication of nurses everywhere.

Alina Brehar, a nurse at the home, said It was a childhood dream to become a nurse, to be able to help others in their hour of need.

She added: “I would encourage others as it is a very rewarding profession knowing you can make a difference in any small way to someone’s life.”

Eleanor Wilson general manager at the home, said: “At Drummond Grange our nurses are hard-working, dedicated and passionate about caring for older people.

"We are also committed to helping develop newly qualified nurses with their leadership and clinical skills, which can often be invaluable in a career with

increasing responsibilities and workload.”
