As the Home Manager at The Orchard I bring with me over 25 years working in both the NHS and Independent healthcare sector as a Senior Manager. A RGN by background, I have spent the last five years working in the care sector turning round care Homes requiring improvement. The 10 years prior were spent managing the implementation of new services, redesigning clinical pathways and working with key stakeholders to realise national and local health agendas.
I enjoy all aspects of my job, although there are many challenges on a day to day basis. Working with a team who provide high standards of person centred care to residents to ensure they have a fulfilled, engaged and happy environment to live always makes me happy.
My experience and passion for the role I perform is to lead by example, ensuring the home follows all policies and procedures to provide a highly skilled team to enhance the residents lives so they have the most fulfilled life they can have with a leader who is driven to outstanding care.
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 look forward to building relationships with residents and their families, my door is always open should anyone need.
