In memory of Abimbola

In Uncategorized by Local Care Force

It is with great sadness that, as a company, we pay tribute to Abimbola Abidemi Adekunle, known to many as Demi – one of the most incredible, courageous nurses who tragically died recently from Coronavirus. Our thoughts prayers and heartfelt condolences go out with her family at this difficult time.

AbimbolaAbimbola has been part of our team since early 2017. She worked full time with Local Care Force throughout the Manchester area. Abimbola was a character and a well-respected Nurse in her field and will be deeply missed. This is clearly shown below, by all the team who knew her, who’ve shared their experiences of her, in the hope it gives some comfort to the family.

Our key workers, working so hard in these trying times, are the heroes of this country. We respect their courage and dedication and owe them our lives. Thank you to you all. Please stay safe.


Abimbola was an incredibly caring, passionate and dedicated nurse. Most of all she had such a kind soul and her smile was infectious. Those who she worked with always commented that Abimbola was a lovely, friendly and dedicated nurse. She was also deeply loved and much respected by many fellow LCF nurses. She always came to the office to sit and have a catch up over a cup of tea and never failed to make me laugh! She made time for everyone in the office, everyone genuinely enjoyed her company. I know that it was not only myself at Local Care Force that she made an impact on. Rosie – Nursing Team Leader
It has been a pleasure and an honour to be involved with Abimbola’s educational journey. She was an absolute pleasure to teach and always enjoyed our sessions, being very enthusiastic and keen to learn more. We spent many hours after the sessions enjoying discussions about the topic and Abimbola was always enthusiastic to learn more. She was passionate about learning and always understood the importance of gaining more knowledge and skills. She has enhanced my educational life and has influenced the way I teach and for that I will always be grateful to her and never forget her enthusiasm and passion for learning. A sad loss to the nursing profession but we won’t forget her. Marija – Senior Nurse & Trainer
Demi was loved by all the places she worked and always received fantastic praise. It regularly made me smile when two of our regular clients would ‘battle’ to secure Demi to fill their shifts – this is perfect testament to the type of person and nurse she was. In the short time that I knew her, Demi had a positive impact on my life – she always managed to make me laugh on the phone and would go above and beyond in her duties with the regular clients that she worked with. Demi, you will be greatly missed, not just by myself but the whole team at Local Care Force in Manchester. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends during this trying time. Rest In Peace Demi. Chris – Nursing Relationship Manager
Demi was a magnificent lady, she would come to the office from time to time, and her presence lit up the room. She would often stay and we would chat over tea and biscuits and talk about my array of handbags. Demi was proud of her children and would talk about them with such passion all of the time. Demi was caring, kind hearted; she always took the time to ask about my family and myself, Demi was selfless and was truly interested with our lives inside and outside of work. Demi I will miss our chats, but the ones we did have will stay with me forever. You will be sadly missed you are a true angel. Emma – Office Manager
I have known and truly respected Abimbola since early 2017, even when she had a difficult shift she kept on trying her best. The care she had for the residents she nursed and her passion for nursing even when things weren’t easy always shone through. Helped by her amazing smile and loving nature, she was, and still is an inspiration to me. We not only had laughs but tears too at times and this just showed her passion and how much she really cared. I will really miss you Demi you were an amazing nurse and a wonderful personality. Amelia – Senior Clinical Lead Nurse
