As Home of Compassion’s Manager, I have a strong conviction that each resident should have the opportunity to live their life as they wish to, in this very comfortable and prestigious setting. The caring and committed team working with me shares my values and beliefs, to make sure that our care helps residents to keep their dignity and choices in life. Our approach enables them to keep the best possible degree of independence which keeps them safe and happy.
I am a registered nurse, having trained first in Glasgow followed by an orthopaedic nursing qualification in Bath. During my career I have worked abroad in Cyprus, run a nursery school, managed a small private hospital and worked as a community nurse in the local area. The nine years I spent as a community nurse included palliative care and support to both patients and their families.
In 2005 I gained a Registered Managers Award and have been working with the Caring Homes Group since 2011. I feel very fortunate to be doing a job which gives me such fulfilment every day. Not only am I able to inspire and provide high quality care and service, it is one of my great pleasures to meet people, listen to their stories and hear tales of their lives.
