It is the people who make our home a truly happy and caring one, and at Gracewell of Woking our experienced team of dedicated professionals all undergo our own in-depth training programme. The whole team works to make sure that residents' needs are at the heart of everything they do and that personalised care is provided.
After working in a corporate environment all my working life I joined the home as Activities Coordinator and never been so happy. I am passionate about the role and ensuring that the residents are stimulated, happy and entertained. I do not feel like I am coming to work each day, I feel like I am spending time with my family.
I started working at Gracewell of Woking in 2018. Happiness is the key for me, and I am happy to be the part of the family and the team at the home. I like new challenges every day, not just usual day-to-day cooking but also cooking for specialists diets and requests. My team and I are dedicated to provide healthy and nutritious meals for the residents so they can stay strong, happy and healthy.
I have been here since 2016 and I am so blessed that I have a job that I truly love doing. I get to meet new people daily and help support residents and their families through an emotional journey.
I have been the Resident Ambassador here since 2019 and it has given me a real purpose. It's lovely to be involved with the recruitment and have a say in who will be joining us. Most importantly, I am the person that my friends come to in the home if they have any worries or questions. I always try my best to answer them but if I cannot I will find the member of the team that they need. I really love having the responsibility and am really enjoying my role.
