As the Home Manger of Brooklyn House, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of care for up to 38 residents with varying needs.
Growing up in Romania and inspired by my mum who worked in the nursing profession my dream was to become a nurse. After graduating from nursing school in 2013 I took the next steps and applied for my first RGN position in the UK. In November 2014 I joined Brooklyn House as an RGN and had the opportunity to be Nurse in Charge on shift.
Since then with continual learning and development, colleagues support and hard work in January 2016 I became Clinical Lead / Deputy Manager at the home. Caring Homes has continually given me support and the opportunity to develop my career and I finished my NVQ Level 5 in Management in Health and Social Care in 2018. I was also honoured to be nominated in November 2018 for the Employee of our Region within our quarterly awards.
I am so proud of what I have achieved and grateful for the support that I have received from all my colleagues to make my dream a reality. I enjoy all aspects of managing a care home, including making it homely for my residents and offering personal care based on individual’s needs. It is also important to me to support my staff to develop and succeed in their roles, in the same way that I have been. I feel very privileged to be in a role which gives me such fulfilment and enables me to bring my knowledge, experience and skills to my team, who are encouraged to give the best care and support they can to our residents and their families.
