As Home Manager of Mellish House, I lead a professional care team in delivering the highest standards of specialist care for up to 48 elderly people living with dementia.
I have over 18 years of experience across Adult Mental Health, Elderly Mental Health and Adult Social Care services, spending the last 9 years in management roles. I hold SVQ’s in Adult Health and Social Care Levels 3 & 4 and QCF Level 5.
As a people person, caring has always been a passion of mine. This is the aspect that makes my job worthwhile, making a positive impact on our residents and their families lives no matter how big or small, in what has become their home and supporting them to continue a good quality of life.
I continuously work to improve and maintain the care standards at Mellish House and have in the past help to raise thousands of pounds to purchase items that have had a positive impact on those I support, including a wheelchair power pack for someone to get out and about, an electronic massage bed to help with MS symptoms and a wardrobe full of clothes for someone who lost all their belongings in a house fire. It’s these personal touches that can make all the difference.
The local community is very important to Mellish House, I have worked hard to build a good reputation to make Mellish a home of choice, this includes an ‘Oustanding’ rating by CQC and a continuous care team who help deliver an excellent standards of care to our residents.
Away from work, I enjoy reading and spending time with my two teenage sons, partner and new puppy. I also loves music, festivals, exercise and socialising with friends.
