I have been a bit of a fixture at East Hill House since I first took a job working in the kitchen at age 15. Now, as the Home Manager, I’m proud to lead my professional and compassionate Care Team in delivering the highest standards of residential and specialist dementia care for the 32 elderly residents of this grand Hampshire home.
Having spent time working in every area of East Hill House, I like to think that I bring stability, continuity and a deep understanding of the home to my role. I take my responsibilities very seriously and strive to maintain a safe environment, promote the highest standard of care and make a positive difference to each and every resident’s life.
