Meet the Sheltered Housing Officers: Melanie Ward and
"Hi my name is Melanie and I have been a Sheltered Housing
Officer for 4 years now. I have always enjoyed helping people and
was previously a Deputy Manager in an Older Persons home before
coming here - so I feel like I was able to bring lots of experience
with me when I came to Hadrian House.
"I’ve enjoyed learning all about the people and the area as it
is part of a very tight close-knit community and there’s a lovely
group of people living here.
"If I had to describe myself I would say I am quiet,
understanding and patient."
"Hi, my name is Rachel.
I used to work as a systems administrator and I have to say my
computer skills have come in very handy in this job!
"Hadrian House has a really friendly feel to the place because
people here are a very close community and everyone looks out for
everyone else. Some people find it difficult to get out and
about so I often organise trips and love it when I see how much
people enjoy themselves. As I’m from Yorkshire we often head
down that way because I know all the best places to go. We will be
going down in the near future to go the Christmas Market in York –
always a treat!"
