The dedicated and experienced team at Kenilworth Grange will provide your loved one with care that’s completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes.
I joined the team at Kenilworth Grange in October 2011.
I’m a Registered Nurse, and I’ve continued my nursing education to achieve a master’s degree in nursing, as well as midwife and social and health care qualifications.
To do this role well, you need to be analytical and a team player. It’s important to be an effective communicator and a role model who can lead the team. You also need up-to-date clinical skills and the ability to manage the home.
I have a good rapport with my colleagues and enjoy managing the home as a unit. My favourite part of the day is ensuring the team's skill mix is just right. Contributing to health and safety training has been a highlight of my career, and I take great pride in empowering colleagues through clinical competencies.
I’ve worked in care for the past 20 years and really enjoy it, but in my varied career I’ve also spent 10 years in the Royal Navy and even worked at the Ritz in London.
I joined Care UK in 2016. I’ve been trained in management and have also achieved my food hygiene diploma.
As Head Chef, you need to be a good communicator with colleagues and residents. It’s important to listen to residents’ likes and dislikes and act on this information. I enjoy every day at Kenilworth Grange, but my favourite moments have to be preparing the cakes and biscuits for the home. I look forward to continuing to wo fill up the home with residents.
Outside of work, I enjoy restoring my 1974 VW Camper and watching football.
I joined Kenilworth Grange in 2008 after working as a Housekeeper in a hotel.
In this role, it’s important to communicate with team members, residents and their families and friends. You must be organised to lead the team, good at problem solving and adaptable.
Most days at Kenilworth Grange are completely different, but I enjoy the mornings after all the team has arrived and been assigned their floors for the day. I also enjoy deep cleaning rooms and preparing them for new residents.
My proudest moments were the two times I was awarded a ‘GEM’ award for going the extra mile.
I love interacting with the residents and their families. I’m fond of my colleagues too, we have a good domestic team that work well together and are very supportive.
Outside of work, I like reading and solving puzzles like crosswords and sudoku. I also enjoy cooking and listening to Motown music. Once a month, I also catch up with old friends for a meal.
