As Home Manager of Guysfield, I lead a professional staff team in delivering the highest standards of residential care for up to 48 elderly people.
Having started as a Care Assistant at Guysfield over 12 years ago and working my way up to Home Manager, I bring stability, continuity and a familiar face to the 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.
Guysfield has been such a big part of my life for the past twelve years that I am delighted to continue the good work we do here in delivering the best possible care for our residents.
I strongly believe in maintaining a ‘hands on’ approach to management. I understand the importance of listening to residents, relatives and staff, and the key contribution all of these groups make to the successful running of a care home.
I am keen to take a proactive approach to the training programme within the home, built primarily around delivering highly person centred care for the residents of Guysfield, but also supporting effective personal development for my care team, I am currently working towards my QCF Level 5.
I live just a few miles from Guysfield. In my leisure time I like to take advantage of the picturesque surroundings of the local area, enjoying many outdoor activities and socialising with family and friends.
