I’ve worked in the care sector all my career, beginning at the tender age of 15 when I did work experience in a residential home. I then became a care assistant and worked my way up. The rest is history!
Commissioning a brand new care home is a dream for most Home Managers. You have the chance to shape everything from the team to the home’s values and standards of care. But no Home Manager can do it all by themselves. Success is all about teamwork. If colleagues are happy, then residents will be happy, so I’m looking forward to making Oakfield Croft a home where the team is positive, motivated and everyone loves what they do.
We’re focused on delivering the highest care standards in stunning surroundings at our care home in Sale. I look forward to seeing you at Oakfield Croft soon!
I used to work in the leisure industry as a Club Manager, overseeing the day-to-day running of the club, membership and the team. When I was looking for a role that offered more job satisfactory, this role seemed to tick all the boxes.
Moving to a new sector was a challenge at first, but has been exactly what I needed: I’m now helping older people and their families at a time when they really need help and support.
I’ve been very impressed by Care UK. There’s an amazing support structure and the organisation cares a lot about colleagues. There’s also a very clear vision for what the care we provide should look like. It’s all about supporting residents to continue living life to the full.
After a busy and productive day at Oakfield Croft I like to take my dog, Poppy, for a long walk and spend some time with my family. I also enjoy horse riding and going to the gym.
