As the Home Manager at Miranda House, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential dementia and nursing dementia care for up to 65 residents.
The began my career in the health and social care sector in 1988 as a care assistant. Then in 1995 I trained and qualified as a registered nurse and went on to gain experience in a busy ward environment and worked as a community nurse before entering management in 2000.
The majority of my management roles have been in elderly care but I have also enjoyed roles in community mental health services, physical disabilities and children’s services. On all occasions I have enjoyed the challenges of these roles, as well as being able to make improvements to the services we provide and ultimately improving the lives of our residents and the care teams, ensuring everyone is happy.
Caring Homes believes in continually improving the quality of life for the people in their care. As a professional, I am passionate about continually improving and delivering the highest standards in care and quality of life for residents.
I believe that Caring Homes will support me to guide and motivate my team to deliver care and support to residents in a way that they gain the most benefit.
I am proud that my philosophy to care has never changed, the four ‘Rights’; the right thing, the right reasons and the right person at the right time. Respecting values by putting people at the centre of their care is paramount. It is important to listen as residents are equal partners in the planning, development and monitoring of their care.
