As the Registered Manager of Whittington House Nursing Home, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential and nursing care for residents with varying needs. Our commitment ensures they lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.
I am a qualified Nurse with a degree in Specialist Practice for Oncology and Palliative Care as well as in depth knowledge of dementia care. During my career I have worked at Cheltenham and Bristol hospitals, as a ward sister in a local hospice, and as Manager of a Dementia Nursing Home.
The diversity of my job, with the opportunity to be a dynamic manager and role model, is very rewarding. I feel very fortunate to be in a post which gives me such fulfilment and which enables me to bring my confidence, knowledge, experience and skills to Caring Homes and my team, who in turn are enabled and encouraged to give the best care and support they can to our residents and their families.
I live in Gloucestershire where I was born and raised, and enjoy spending time with my partner and daughter, trying to share my relaxation time with my family as much as possible.
I love reading and music, as well as baking and cake decorating in my spare time. We have recently acquired an allotment and I can’t wait to start making the most of the outdoors together and then eating the hard-earned results of efforts!
