I first started working in care as a Health Care Assistant, before becoming a Marie Curie Nurse – where I did a lot of palliative care work within the community setting. I completed my Nurse training in 2007, at which point I returned to the community as a Registered General Nurse (RGN).
In 2011 I returned to work in care homes as an RGN, and was quickly promoted to the role of Home Manager. I was in this position for 18 months, working with my Care Team to improve our home, before progressing to another home where I achieved equally successful results. I joined Caring Homes in 2015, taking over the role of Home Manager at Tall Trees.
My primary responsibility is to ensure our residents are provided with a high standard of care, ensuring that my Care Team has the support they require to consistently deliver these standards at all times.
Getting to work with residents and relatives are the best parts of my job, as well as supporting my Care Team to get the training they need to keep providing fantastic care.
I’m a caring and compassionate person, and I feel that these are some of the most important qualities I bring to my role as Home Manager. I also have very high expectations, which helps me to ensure that standards in our home are being maintained.
I have lived around the local area all of my life, and I love everything about it! In my spare time I love to cook, walk my dog, and enjoy gardening whenever I get the chance.
