As Home Manager of Miranda House, I lead my compassionate and professional Care Team in providing the highest standards of specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 65 elderly people.
Before moving into the private sector in 2007, I worked for a number of years in the NHS, predominantly in surgical roles. Following my move into elderly and dementia care as a Registered General Nurse, I held a variety of positions including Unit Manager and Clinical Team Leader.
Having initially joined Caring Homes in 2012 as Deputy Manager of Miranda House, I was promoted to Home Manager early in 2013. I felt that the Caring Homes philosophy aligned well with my own beliefs on care provision and I am intent on ensuring that all residents of Miranda House continue to receive the high levels of care and protection they are entitled to.
Within my role, I am particularly passionate about empowering my Care Team and ensuring that they are given every opportunity to learn and grow in their profession.
I hold a Diploma in Person Centred Dementia Care, and think that training is a key factor in delivering truly person centred care.
I’m originally from Scotland, and enjoy life in the Cotswolds as the environment and communities here remind me of home. Having spent over 20 years in South Cerney, I moved to Royal Wootton Bassett in 2011, and have enjoyed exploring the local area ever since.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family when away from work and have a passion for travel; I’ve visited countries across the globe including Canada, Poland, and America.
