I joined Care UK, and Catherine Court, in May 2018. It was recommended to me as a good organisation to work for. Prior to joining the team here I was working as a nurse at a local hospital. It’s a very different environment working in a care home. Here we have the chance to spend time with the people we’re caring for. You can get to know them – and it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to make them happy and to make a difference to their lives every day.
Becoming a care home manager has definitely been my biggest career highlight to date. It’s such a rewarding role, and every day is different. I enjoy working with the team to deliver even better care to residents, supporting relatives and helping my team to develop and achieve their potential.
