Peg (Margaret) Riordan is a resident in St Joseph’s Home for the past 14 years.  In all that time she has the greatest of praise for the wonderful care she has received from the Staff.  All her needs are met with warmth and friendliness.  She is now almost 101 and still loves the beautiful food that is being served every day.  The Chapel on the premises is another very important aspect of the care package as she loved going to Mass regularly and in later years, she is able to receive Holy Communion in her room.  In her own words “St Joseph’s is home from home”.

I have worked with the Sisters and Staff of St Joseph’s Nursing Home for the past nineteen years.  I find my Employers very just and kind and I could not wish for better.  May they go on for many years to come, as an example of how employers should treat employees.

Staff members are respectful, co-operative and perform their tasks with the residents with meticulous care and kindness.
