Staff and residents at the home sent Graeme off in style with a big party. Many of his current and past colleagues decorated the home and gathered together to present Graeme with cards and gifts. Everyone at the home has very fond memories of Graeme and he will be sadly missed.

During his time at Kirkburn Court, Graeme has become a very popular team member – with colleagues, residents and their families. He was not only a very dedicated carer, but also drove the Kirkburn bus for resident outings and appointments. He is planning to continue to drive the bus on a voluntary basis.
