Manager's Profile

I joined Caring Homes in 2012, after having spent a number of years managing respite care services and getting new care homes for people with learning disabilities up and running smoothly. In recent years, I have managed care homes for elderly residents in Woking. I have now been a registered manager for twenty years.

With a particular interest in palliative care and dementia, I ensure that every single member of my Care Team puts the individual care needs of each resident first. Whilst providing the highest quality clinical care is vitally important, I know that it’s the little things that mean a lot; anything from making sure that my residents’ favourite tipples are available, to installing a cat-flap to make life easier for an elderly cat and her elderly owner.

I enjoy the day-to-day running of Coxhill Manor and am constantly looking for ways to enhance the quality of life of the people who live here, whether they take a short respite break or move in permanently. I firmly believe that every resident should be involved in all decisions relating to their own care and should have as many opportunities as possible to live life as actively and independently as they choose. I hope to make Coxhill a significant part of the local community, and often invite guests to join in the many activities on offer, or to simply drop in for a cup of tea and a chat.

I take my job very seriously and work hard to make sure that people nearing the end of life do so with total dignity. My whole Care Team genuinely have the best interests of our residents at heart; creating a comfortable, supportive, stimulating and – above all – friendly atmosphere in our home. Whenever I get the chance, there’s nothing I like better than sitting with our residents, listening to their stories and sharing a joke or two.

I enjoy walking – the Pembrokeshire coastal path beckons – as well as playing football and cycling in my spare time.
