A carer from Crimond has retired after 25 years of service and received gifts from her colleagues at a special presentation recently.

Mary Senic has retired after working as a 
home carer for over 25 years.

To mark the milestone, Mary’s colleagues arranged a presentation at Albany Court in Fraserburgh. The presentation took place last week, one week after Mary’s final day in the job.

Mary was presented with long-service vouchers from Aberdeenshire Council as well as a cake, flowers and gifts from her colleagues.

Care Team Co-ordinator Cath Roskell and Linda Wood, who is Home Care Manager for North Aberdeenshire, were on hand to present the gifts.

During her time in the post, Mary has cared for people in their own homes in Fraserburgh, Crimond, Peterhead, St Fergus, Lonmay, St Combs, Inverallochy, Cairnbulg and Mintlaw.

Mary lives in Crimond with her husband, Bill. Together, they have two sons and five grandchildren, all of whom live locally.

Mary says she has no plans for her retirement other than to take it as it comes.

Speaking to the Fraserburgh Herald, Mary commented: “It was a sad day having worked as a carer for so long but I enjoyed my work.

“It’s very nice of them to organise this presentation today.

“I met a lot of characters over the years and some of them were very memorable.”
