Staff at two luxury care homes in Poole – The Links and The Lindsay – are set to mark International Nurses Day on Thursday May 12, by hosting a series of celebrations.

The Links in Broadstone, will be holding a tea party and buffet for the residents to celebrate alongside their carers and all nurses will also receive a rose and thank you card from resident and former nurse Pam Gardener.

Their sister care home in Poole, The Lindsay, will mark the occasion with a celebratory lunch and nursing themed cakes for staff and residents. Entertainment on the day includes music, champagne and a balloon artist.

John Yeoman, managing director of Primetower Care, comments: ““Our nurses are vital to the quality care we provide, and together with all our carers they are dedicated to providing an exemplary service, so it’s wonderful that their efforts can be appreciated on a special day.”
