Our colleagues come from different professional backgrounds and cultures. We’ve all got a story to tell – much like our residents. We all share a common aim – to deliver superb care and wonderful experiences to the people we care for. You can find out more about us on these pages.
I qualified as a General Adult Nurse in Poland in June 2014, and soon after that I came to the UK. In 2016, I achieved my Level 5 qualification in leadership and management, and in 2017 I started working at Care UK.
To be a good Deputy Manager, you must be a good listener. You need to be passionate about the job and caring towards residents and team members. You also need to be a leader.
Making residents and colleagues smile is my favourite part of the working day. I love knowing that I’m making a difference in their lives.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time away with my family to relax and unwind.
I’ve worked as a Head Chef for many years in Poland and the UK. My aim is always to get to know residents, their likes and dislikes, and to gain their feedback so I can create varied, high quality dishes that they’ll love. The more information they can give me, the better.
I’m often out on the floor at mealtimes, chatting to residents, and I’m involved in each resident’s regular care review. That’s my opportunity to find out what they’d like to see more of on the menu. I always act quickly to make changes, so residents can enjoy healthy home-cooked meals tailored to their needs and tastes.
In my spare time I enjoy playing football with my sons. I also have a green belt in karate!
I’m a team leader at Larkland House as well as the home’s infection control and prevention champion. In my latter role I support the team to reduce the risks of infection to residents, relatives, visitors and colleagues by helping to create and maintain an environment that supports safe and clean care.
I’ve had specialist training in IPC so that I can act as a role model for best IPC practice at all times, ensuring regulatory, legal and standards requirements are being met. I work closely with the management team at Larkland House as well as the Care UK IPC leads.
I’ve worked for Care UK since 2015. I took on this IPC champion role in addition to my team leader duties as I wanted to stretch myself, learn new things and support residents, colleagues, the home and Care UK to help combat Covid-19. I’ve been able to start studying for an NVQ level 5 and to work alongside the management team, which have both been great opportunities.
Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.
Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide. We work with you to shape the care your loved one receives, the food they’re served, the activities and experiences they want to do – even the ways they prefer to keep in touch with their friends and family.
The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.
Our dedicated lifestyle teams work hard to organise a range of activities and events at our home. From gardening and baking to quizzes, music sessions and even live entertainment. Above all, we get to know your loved one to make sure our activities are tailored to suit their interests and hobbies.
From catering to maintenance, housekeeping to administration, our home support teams play a crucial part in ensuring individuals enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.
All our teams get to know each person they care for to ensure they provide a service that’s designed around their unique needs and tastes.
Each of our homes have a trained Infection Control and Prevention Champion – they are responsible for carrying out daily infection control audit and ensuring cleaning protocols are meticulously applied.
