Debbie, Angie, Sally, Sam, and Cath are part of the Domestic Team at Dove House who are also joined by colleagues Lisa, Vanessa and volunteers Tina and Barbara.
The team work daily here at the hospice and are responsible for the high levels of cleanliness that is apparent in the building. As well as keeping the building clean and tidy they also deal with the laundry requirements of the hospice In-patient unit, complementary therapy areas and relatives suites as well as support the clinical teams with infection control.
The team pride themselves on working in accordance with organisational values – united, positive, passionate and professional. Cath - who has worked at Dove House for 14 years - talks of how much the building has grown in size since she first started working here. ‘I have seen my team grow in numbers to meet the extra demand the development in services brings.’
All the team agree that they enjoy seeing for themselves the extent of the care offered to patients and their families. They also love to hear the patients and relatives talk about how clean and tidy the hospice is, saying ‘it makes our jobs worthwhile’.
