I’m a qualified Nurse with a background in care of the elderly, and have worked all around the world in a variety of care home settings. Some of the places I have worked include China, Taiwan and the Philippines. I have also spent time teaching, lecturing and training care colleagues both here in the UK and abroad.
I previously worked at other Caring Homes locations, including Huntercombe Hall and Hulcott, before moving to Abbeycrest. I am very proud of my accomplishments, especially my efforts to build strong local community links and to assure our high standards of care are maintained.
As Manager I enjoy the variety of each day and always take great pleasure from time spent talking to residents and relatives. I particularly love the reward of seeing a resident respond positively to the care and comfort provided by my Care Team at the home.
I’m a strong advocate of investing in our local community, and I also regularly send money back to an education project in my native home town in the Philippines. The project sponsors underprivileged school children to achieve secondary education qualifications, enabling them to have better life prospects.
