As Home Manager of Magna Care Centre, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential and nursing care for up to 63 residents with varying needs.
With over 9 years working at Magna Care Centre as a Registered Nurse and then as Deputy Manager I bring experience and knowledge of the residents, families and local community to my role.
During my early career I worked on various hospital wards, which has given me a breadth of medical knowledge, including; intensive, elderly and stroke care. I have also completed my NVQ Level 5 in leadership and management which was supported by Caring Homes.
I am passionate about ensuring residents have dignified and respectful care, and enriching our residents lives with social interaction.

If I can make a difference to just one person a day it makes my job worthwhile.
Magna Care Centre is a relaxed home from home. The calm and welcoming atmosphere is down to the fantastic caring team that support me. Nothing is ever too much and they are always ready to go the extra mile when needed, an absolute credit to me, Magna Care Centre and Caring Homes.
