Penny Cook Community Visitor

Penny Cook

My name is Penny Cook I have been a community visitors for about 4 months, I learnt about the scheme at an open day. I have recently retired from a job with Continuing Health Care which involved carrying out assessments in various nursing and residential homes in the Brentwood area. When I retired I really missed visiting the care homes so when I met Debbie it was a gift. I now visit Seven Arches once a week, I chat to the residents and relatives many I have known from when I was working it has been very rewarding, I also join in the many activities and get regularly beaten at scrabble by one of the residents!!! I have been made to feel most welcome by all the staff and I look forward to my visits.
