I spent 26 years selling beds, gloves and consumables to care homes.
I joined Care UK because it felt like it was time to come and work in a care home! My role involves welcoming potential new residents and their families into the home and showing them the difference we can make to their lives.
I love the variety of this job: going from doing a show-round to organising the paperwork for a new resident’s admission, and then having a chat and a giggle with some of the residents. How many jobs enable you to do that?!
One of the best things about my job is seeing a new resident settling in and enjoying life. Particularly if they’ve had a stay in hospital, being in lovely, calm surroundings and enjoying personalised care, activities and tasty food makes all the difference to them.
I waited for four years for a role to open up at Mill View – I used to pass it every day and hope that I could find a perfect role at Care UK!
I wanted to work for an employer that invests in its people, where I’d be seen as a person and not just a number on the payroll. This is why Care UK is different.
When you love what you’re doing, it doesn’t feel like you’re working. The time goes so quickly, and you end up looking forward to the day ahead.
There are so many parts of my job that I love, from the gratitude from my colleagues when I help them, to seeing someone progressing in their career with us and knowing I had a part in it.
I look forward to continuing to see the smiles from residents that greet me in the morning, to hear their stories and laughter and experience the friendliness of my colleagues.
In the time I have for myself, I’m learning to play the guitar. Learning my favourite rock songs is so relaxing!
I first joined Care UK in 2015 and have developed within the company from working as a Team Leader for over four years to my current role.
When I come to work, I feel like I’m seeing my second family and I love that the staff are very friendly and dedicated.
To be successful in this role I believe you need to love your role and enjoy what you are doing. You also need to be caring, have respect, and positivity – a smile can turn someone’s day around so much.
I love the interaction with the residents, my favourite part of the day is greeting them and having a chat with them. I love seeing the smiles on their faces and seeing them happy.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my little boy, and I love reading books and listening to music.
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.

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.
