The great reputation of Appleby House goes before it, and Id heard a lot about it before I even applied to work here. While Ive worked in care home administration before, Ive not worked anywhere like Appleby! I get to meet a huge variety of people on a daily basis; I interact with lovely staff and residents – I love it all.
Theres a very special atmosphere here. Its all about positivity, and it shines from everyone, from Shona, the home manager, down. Theres a strong family feeling: residents are treated like part of a big family. Its a very happy place to work and to be.
What I love about working at Appleby House is the way that every member of the team is involved in care. We are actively encouraged to get to know the residents and bond with them and involve them in the tasks that we do, to give them a sense of independence and meaning.
The best part of my role is talking to residents and getting to know their quirks and individual stories. I’ve even taken on the role of Dignity Champion at Appleby House, to ensure that all residents are always treated with dignity and respect. I’m looking forward to continuing to improve what we do here so that we provide the highest standards to the people we care for.
