Agnieszka Klimkowicz-Buda

Home Manager

Agnieszka Klimkowicz-Buda

I started working at Care UK in 2009 after hearing great things about their values.

The way they ensure excellent care is delivered and that residents have a say in how their home is run.

Before joining Care UK, I worked as a Nurse for 10 years in a hospital in Poland, where I completed my Level 5 equivalent qualification. It’s my proudest accomplishment that I was able to come to England, not being able to speak English, and work my way up to achieve the role of Home Manager.

Ensuring that every resident receives outstanding care is challenging, but it’s so rewarding seeing smiles from happy residents, or when a resident or a colleague achieves something they’ve been working hard for. My favourite moments are enjoying coffee mornings with the residents, families and colleagues.

To be a good Home Manager, I think it’s important to listen and be empathetic. You need to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. It’s also important to have a passion to offer outstanding care.

When I’m not working, I love reading and spending time with my family to unwind.

Eliza Rowe
Lifestyle Lead

Care UK is the perfect place to work. The people here are very friendly, caring and passionate about the job they’re doing. Before I joined Care UK, I was working as a culinary chef in Morocco. I moved to the UK 12 years ago and started working at Care UK in 2013 as a Care Assistant, before working my way up to Lifestyle Coordinator and now Lifestyle Lead.

My favourite part of each day is spending time with the residents. I love exchanging stories with them, and making them smile is always rewarding. When I go home, I feel fulfilled knowing I made a difference in their life by making them happy.

The most important part of my role as Lifestyle Lead is to lead the team and share my ideas and experience. In my opinion, it's important to be patient, passionate, caring and respectful, treating people the way you would like them to treat you.

I’m proud when I can listen to and support my team and when I provide activities that make residents happy.

During my spare time outside of work, I like to practice my canvas painting and spend time with family and friends.

Łukasz Jakub Sus
Head Chef

Before joining Care UK, I was working in construction in Poland, but I wanted to try working in a new environment. I’ve now had training in supervising and managing in catering kitchens in the UK, and my role as Head Chef is to serve the residents at Oak House. I take pride in ensuring that they are always happy with their food.

In this role, it’s important to always be professional and polite, helpful and patient with the residents. I enjoy seeing my colleagues every day, ensuring the kitchen runs smoothly, listening to the team and being understanding and empathetic. I love to make the residents’ days and see them smile.

Outside of work, spending time with my family is my priority. I love watching my son grow up.

Tina Parry
Business Administrator

I wanted to join Care UK and Oak House because the organisation has a great reputation for care and for supporting its colleagues to progress. 

Since joining the home I’ve got involved in colleague recruitment, which is something I really enjoy. It’s an opportunity to build a professional relationship with every new employee who joins the home. I see their application through from beginning to end. 

Ours is a big care home and there are lots of systems to learn – I’m proud of myself that I’ve learnt the ins and outs of two payroll systems! There’s always something new to learn, which I enjoy, whether it’s all about running staff rotas or doing fire training. I love the variety of each day and juggling multiple tasks. 

I have two young golden retrievers, so they keep me busy outside of work. I also enjoy cycling and walking in my spare time, as well as eating out.

Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide.

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.
