As the Home Manager, I have a qualified nursing background from Philippines. I ensure the effective delivery of high holistic person-centred care in a safe environment. I lead by example, creating a culture of continuous learning and development and the team are encouraged and valued ensuring all aspects of care can be maintained to the highest standards in accordance to Caring Homes philosophy.
I enjoy all aspects of my job, although there are many challenges on a day to day basis, working with a team who provide high standards of person centred care to residents to ensure they have a fulfilled, engaged and happy environment to live always makes me happy.
I have been working in the care industry all my working life starting as a Psychiatric Nurse for 5 years and A&E Nurse for almost 3 years. I worked as a General Nurse for 2 years, working my way up to Senior Nurse. I began work in care homes as Head of Care before quickly becoming a Deputy Manager and then being promoted to Home Manager and then Senior Home Manager.
I have been involved in the commissioning of a new home and understand the challenges that can be encountered. I enjoy the day to day challenges of running a care home, working with many professionals, internally and externally and building those relationships with and for Belmont house. I continue to learn and develop and no day is ever the same which makes everything so worthwhile.
My experience and passion for the role I perform is to lead by example, ensuring the home follows all policies and procedures to provide a highly skilled team to enhance the residents lives so they have the most fulfilled life they can have with a leader who is driven to outstanding care.
