During my 34 years in nursing I have specialised in the care of older people and have a wide range of experience, including caring for people with a range of neurological conditions.
I have always strived to make a difference to the lives of those I care for and place the wishes of residents at the heart of the care we provide at Laverstock Care Centre. Our tightly-knit Care Team work with each resident to develop a personalised care plan, which caters for their specific needs and ensures that residents have choice and control over how their care is delivered.
Within my role, I take particular pleasure from getting to know residents and their families. I feel that having a good understanding of each resident’s background is essential in building a relationship of trust. I encourage family involvement through a culture of open communication, which has resulted in the friendly, welcoming atmosphere experienced at Laverstock Care Centre.
I live just a few miles away and, in my spare time, I play an active role in the local community. I serve as a School Governor and support a number of local charities and church organisations.
