General Assistant - Diane's Story

Diane is a General Assistant based at Rosewell House, our intermediate care facility in Kingsgate, Aberdeen.

She has been working in care for over seventeen years, starting as a domestic assistant when her children were little.

“My husband worked shifts so the job was ideal to fit round the whilst the children were small.”

She worked as a domestic and in the kitchen at our care home in Torry, Balnagask House before eventually moving to Rosewell, where she works as a General Assistant. General Assistants are the backbone of Bon Accord Care, keeping everything clean, tidy and in the right place. They spend a lot of time on the floor, talking to residents and making sure that they are happy.

So what does she like about the job?

“The residents. We spend a lot of time with them, getting cups of tea, drinks, tidying up and putting away their laundry. I always make a point of popping my head in and saying hello to everyone. Some like to chat, and everyone appreciates a friendly face.”

“We see the little things that can make a big difference to people’s lives.”
