Ms Williams began her journey with Bupa as a senior care assistant in a West Midlands care home before transferring to The Springs where she has served for the past 10 years.

She enjoys engaging with residents on a personal level and prioritizes their health and wellbeing.

Ms Williams said: "I can’t believe I’ve worked at Bupa for 25 years.

"It’s been a wonderful experience and I’ve made so many special memories.

"I am beyond grateful to everyone – from the brilliant residents to our fantastic care home team."

She added: "I have enjoyed every aspect of being a part of the care team here.

"Being a carer is everything to me and I just love spending time with the residents."

Outside her work life, she is an avid walker who enjoys cinema trips and dining out with friends.

Speaking highly of Ms Williams, Lesley Work, The Springs Bupa care home manager, said: "Jo is a huge asset to The Springs community.

"Her kindness, work ethic and commitment to our residents epitomises what the Bupa family is all about and we couldn’t be prouder of her for reaching 25 years of service.

"We are thrilled that we’ve been able to spoil her and show her how much she means to us all."

The care home extends its services to those requiring nursing or residential care, including those living with dementia.
