As Manager of Hillside, I lead my professional and compassionate Care Team in delivering the highest level of residential care for up to 21 residents.
I have worked in elderly care for the past seven years, in which time I have gained experience in supporting people living with dementia. I’ve now completed a Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care and am currently working towards my NVQ Level 5 in Management & Leadership.
This wide-ranging experience has equipped me well for my role at Hillside, where I work hard to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.
I strongly believe that a hands-on approach is essential in creating a safe, warm and homely atmosphere where our residents can maintain their independence.
As someone who is dedicated to best practice in elderly care, I also believe in maintaining strong relationships with residents and their relatives, and I understand the important contribution that these relationships make to the successful running of a care home.
I live locally and enjoy running, dancing and spending time with my family when away from work.
