Trusted to care in Shewsbury, Shropshire
I’ve worked in a sales environment for 30 years and have spent some time working in the retirement sector.
When I saw this role advertised, I researched Care UK and was impressed by the organization's strong and clear values. Care UK puts residents and their families first in everything, and that echoed my own values. I knew this was an organization I wanted to work for.
I have an elderly mother so I know how important it is to families that a home offers the highest quality care for their older loved one. I always put myself in the position of ‘what would I want for my mum’ when I’m liaising with families. It’s vital that they can trust us to care.
Oxbow Manor is a brand new home, so our team has a wonderful opportunity to create a superb care home from scratch. We can set the standard from the outset, and I, for one, can’t wait to make Oxbow Manor the ‘go to’ care home for families in Shrewsbury.
Away from work, I enjoy horse-riding, gardening, baking and walking my two tiny dogs! I also love planning holidays and weekends away and, of course, going on them!
