As the Home Manager at Wytham House Care Home, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential dementia and nursing dementia care for up to 40 elderly residents.
I began my care career working in home care and supported living roles, supporting adults with disabilities and the elderly. I have always been very passionate about elderly care so to further developed myself by studying Adult Nursing at Oxford Brookes University.
Following my studies, I was a Ward Nurse at Witney Community Hospital, a District Nurse, and a Tissue Viability Link Nurse. During this time, I gained my mentorship qualification and taught wound care and pressure prevention within the local community.
I continued to develop my career as a Deputy Manager in a Dementia Care Home. Then, in 2018 I joined Caring Homes as the Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead of Wytham House, before progressing to the role of Care Home Manager.
At Wytham House the residents we care for each have a personal history filled with professions and hobbies. They have lived independently as highly respected individuals and it’s important that when they make Wytham House their home we continue to treat them with the dignity, respect, compassion and care they deserve.
We are the only care home in the area with our own unique ‘Living in My World’ dementia training, which is accredited by City and Guilds.
