Mandy Stopper joined Hunters Creek Care Home, in London Road, in August 1996 as a care assistant.
Through diligence, she rose to the role of senior care assistant and then floor manager – her current position.

The most rewarding part of my role is being with our residents, they make every day worthwhile. I also work with a fantastic team who support each other and help make Hunters Creek such a great community.”
Home manager Rachel French said: “Mandy’s long service underlines her loyalty to our residents and to Hunters Creek. Mandy is a perfect example of what can be achieved through hard work, training, and commitment.
