I started out in the care sector working as a laundry assistant over 20 years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed working with older people, so I started to work more closely with the care team. Over the years I’ve worked across all the areas of a care home, done all the training I could, and moved up the ranks to become a home manager. I joined Care UK in 2014.
I love the fact that each day is different when you work in a care home – it keeps you on your toes. I always look forward to walking around Paisley Court each day and spending time on each suite talking to residents and colleagues to find out about their day and what I can support them with. I think in my role it’s important to be approachable, understanding, patient and to lead by example. I love being a home manager; achieving this position has been a career highlight for me.
What do the next few months have in store? We’re looking forward to making some changes to the home environment at Paisley Court. We’re focused on enhancing our CQC rating and determined to get at least one ‘outstanding’ rating!
