5 Mins With…Gillian Campbell, Administrator, West Farm

How did you get into care?

Caring is something I am personally passionate about and, initially, I volunteered to help out at West Farm in the office which eventually led to a full-time role which I love!

What is it that you love most about caring for the elderly?

I love the interaction with residents and the conversations we have, and the laughter we share.

3 people you’d love to have dinner with?

Olly Murs (need I say why?!), George Michael (such a unique and caring person) and Mrs Brown from the popular TV show Mrs Brown’s Boy

Guilty pleasure?

It would have to be a cheeky tipple at the weekend!

What’s your passion outside of care?

I love being a mam and watching my son play football.

What people are saying

  • "Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."

  • "From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "

  • "This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "

  • "All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
