Life at Vonlea Manor: Bernie

Bernie has spent most of his life working as a labourer in the local wool stores. Today, he’s loving the quiet life at Vonlea Manor and having the choice to mix with others when he feels like it. “What I love most here is the companionship”, said Bernie.

Bernie also loves his own company, too, and is often very happy to spend time in his room saying his prayers and watching television.

He thinks the staff is great! In particular, he believes they are very attentive to his needs and he’s very happy with the food.
