Trusted to care in Islington
I am an experienced nurse and have achieved multiple nursing qualifications in Greece and the UK where I researched and studied nursing for two years at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In 2020 I joined Care UK because of the opportunities to develop and grow within a role as well as the amazing support from the team and my line manager.
Being a Deputy Manager at Lennox House requires a lot of qualities like kindness to colleagues and residents, being a good listener, and being open and honest while remaining friendly and professional. I love our ‘ten at ten’ (ten minutes together at 10am) meetings with the team where we get together for updates and set goals for the day. I enjoy setting the quality and performance bars high and setting clear expectations.
The Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Champion’s role is to establish and maintain a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness so that residents and colleagues in the home are kept safe. They ensure that all colleagues are well trained in infection control and are on hand to ensure the team are working to the highest standards.
Patience, attention to detail, the ability to work to deadlines and a sense of humour are crucial to my job role. My favourite part of each day is meeting and getting to know new people, the satisfaction of helping others and completing daily tasks.
My passion for caring for the elderly and people in general is why working at Lennox House is so fulfilling.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. I enjoying playing video games or watching a good movie. However the best way for me to relax at the end of a long day is a glass of wine and Netflix.
