Mrs Day visits clients in the North Lowestoft area, providing services that enable them to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. She provides personal care, companionship and runs errands for clients to help them with day to day living.

Branch manager Shonah Gordon said: “Kerry is the longest serving member of the team and has seen many changes over the years, but has never lost her absolute commitment to providing the very best care to our clients.
