Trusted to care in Chester, Cheshire
I moved to Care UK in 2015 because it was a large and successful company with a good reputation.
I worked in one of the organisations established care homes in Chester before moving to Deewater Grange when it opened in 2020.
This is a very busy role, so good organisational skills are a must. I enjoy being methodical and completing tasks, so Im in the right job! It also helps to be good with technology, as there are lots of systems to learn. Lastly, being approachable and friendly with relatives and residents is a must too.
I love the beautiful, modern surroundings of Deewater Grange, and that theres so much here for residents to enjoy. Im personally enjoying getting to know my colleagues, as well as our residents and their families.
In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, going to the gym, walking the dog, or doing puzzles and bingo.
Id been working in the plumbing trade for several years before I was offered this role at Deewater Grange.
I was over the moon to join the team because Care UK has such a great reputation.
I like the fact that no two days are the same at our Chester care home. It keeps me on my toes! Also being able to make a difference to an older persons life, even in a small way, is a great feeling.
These are exciting times at Deewater Grange as we welcome more new residents, and develop the home. Im looking forward to the challenges ahead and to learning and progressing as part of a fantastic team.
Outside of work I like to unwind by doing photography, and going to the skatepark with my son Lucas.
Hi everyone, I'm Mabel.
I'm four years old and my white and fluffy appearance is due to me being a Chorkie - that is, a Chihuahua crossed with a Yorkshire Terrier.
You can find me around the home during the week when I'm available for treat eating and trick performing. I can sit, lie down, high five and roll over. If you've got the treats, I've got the tricks!
Mine is the best job you can have at Deewater Grange. I get to meet and greet visitors and I let residents make a fuss of me whenever they like. I also like to sit in on new staff interviews. What that really means is I like to sit on new staff in interviews. I'm here to make sure that new team members will love the residents as much as I do!
