I joined the team in 2011 as a Care Assistant. I have been fortunate and grateful for the opportunities to progress to a Senior Care Assistant role and now more recently, the Assisted Living Coordinator. Not only have I progressed, but I have had the opportunity to gain my Health and Social Care level 5 qualification whilst in my senior role. My role as Assisted Living Coordinator is to oversee and ensure the highest quality of individualised care, and to ensure that our team members deliver care with compassion and respect.
