Former postmistress Joyce Haynes, is the first individual to move into Deeping St James’ newest care home, Braeburn Lodge.

Mrs Haynes moved into the home just before her 90th birthday, which she celebrated at Braeburn Lodge with her family and friends on January 25.

It was a lovely occasion for all the guests and staff at the home, and Mrs Haynes enjoyed a pampering session at Braeburn Lodge’s own hairdressing salon in preparation for her celebrations.

Mrs Haynes lived in Dorset for many years but has made the move to Deeping St James to be nearer to family.

During her working life, she managed a post office in Dorset with her husband. She has two daughters, one who lives locally to Braeburn Lodge, and another who lives in Australia.

She is enjoying living at Braeburn Lodge so far and has been getting to know two other ladies who have also moved into the new home’s memory lane community.

Mrs Haynes said: “The staff here are so caring and the food is wonderful. I really am very happy at Braeburn Lodge.”

Braeburn Lodge offers residential, nursing and respite care, as well as specialist dementia care in their memory lane community.

Sue Scarlett, general manager, said: “This is a very exciting time and I have been enjoying getting to know the individuals who are moving in to Braeburn Lodge.

“We have a very friendly team and we welcome anyone who would like to visit the home and find out more about the services we offer.”
