I have worked in the profession of an Activities Organiser over four years now, and it brings me nothing but joy. I love that my job is all about making people smile, laugh, and creating fun and wonderful memories for residents. In this environment you all become one big family, which is another reason why I love my job. I have been trained in delivering memory care training to collaegues so I have a great knowledge about the dementia journey some residents may be on. Seeing a smile on residents' faces after something you've done for them or with them is like a warm hug in winter, and who doesn't need one of those?

I have been with the home since 2019, and took over as Head Housekeeper in 2021. For me the most important aspect of my role is creating a clean and safe environment for residents, upholding the highest standards every day. It is vital that residents, families and colleagues have a bright and fresh place to be at all times, and that each resident is given a tailored service to suit their personal preferences, whether this be the time their housekeeping is completed, the way their trousers are pressed, or the type of fragrance used within their rooms.
