She has a calming influence and the residents appreciate the fact that she always attends to their needs readily and with a willing heart. One resident said she gives a very good shave!
They also say that she is very gentle and kind which is an attribute that the residents love about her and is always willing to carry out their wishes
Gill says she loves her job and especially enjoys working as part of the Taymer team.
Her 3 grandsons love to visit her and she enjoys it when they stay with her.
Although Gill is very busy she does find time to read but her first love is painting in water colours as she finds it very relaxing and therapeutic - not that she gets much time do this nowadays what with having a busy work schedule and looking after her grandsons.
If you ever visit Taymer you will be sure of a warm welcome and smile from Gill and an offer of getting you a cup of tea.
