NURSES past and present were honoured at a North East care home for International Nurses Day.
Staff and former nurses who now live at The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, Blyth, Northumberland, were recognised for their hard work throughout their careers.
Resident Elsie Scattergood was a mental health nurse in Aberdeen. She said: “I loved being a nurse and worked really hard.”
Pat Whyatt was a paediatric nurse who worked in South Africa in her early twenties as well as the UK. She said: “I am very proud of this time in my life. I loved working with the little children. They were really beautiful.
“It’s lovely to honour all the nurses at The Oaks on Nurses Day as they all work so hard and care a lot about others.”

The Alzheimer’s Show is returning for its sixth year in 2018 and will be at Olympia London on Friday June 8 and Saturday June 9. The UK’s leading event for people living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss, The Alzheimer’s Show brings help and hope to families and carers and welcomes the public and professionals.
The Alzheimer’s Show is invaluable for anyone concerned about memory loss or dementia. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales and research from Saga Healthcare revealed that more people feared getting dementia than cancer. A survey of 9,000 people over 50 showed that 43% feared developing dementia, with women (often the main carers), 20% more likely to be worried about developing the condition than males.
The hero piece of content is our ‘Connecting Families’ film that documents the end to end experience of openPASS, and how it connects the person in care to their families. The film features our customer Melody Care and their clients, the Macro family, demonstrating an efficient, modern method of care giving, using The PASSsystem during a care visit, and most importantly capturing the emotional peace of mind gained by the family accessing openPASS.
The objective is to generate a broad interest from potential end users (the families of those in care) to see the benefits of accessing care notes remotely. This in turn hopes to generate an upward pressure for care homes and providers to adopt The PASSsystem.
