I have worked as a home manager since 2006 and I’m passionate about delivering exceptional care – it’s at the heart of Care UK’s values and ethos too. Much of what I do is about empowering the team to make the best decisions they can, helping help them to create a positive outcome for each person they care for.
In my spare time I enjoy sports, especially CrossFit. Mountain biking is also a passion of mine, I like to play football and I train for competitive swimming events too. My young family also keep me busy – giving me the excuse to climb trees and roll down hills. They remind me what it’s like to live ‘in the moment’.
I have worked in Care since 2012, when I started as a care assistant. I have since worked my way up to a senior team leader and maintenance. I am also a certified professional chef. I enjoy all aspects of running the home and I’m equally happy working in all the departments.
In 2017 I finished my university degree in Management Business Administration. I am currently a Project Manager responsible for building a dental Surgery.
All my previous experience help me to deliver excellent care for residents, and to give the best guidance and support to the team where I can. I am passionate about helping others.
My philosophy of life is to treat everyone with respect and dignity and to see the value in everybody.
In my spare time, I enjoy sports, especially Japanese jogging and exercising at the gym. I live a lifestyle of maintaining a healthy nutritional diet and keeping myself fit.
Having been with Parsons Grange from the very beginning I can genuinely speak from the heart with how fortunate we are to have such a wonderful home for our residents to live a fulfilled and meaningful life. Previously working in the local area for 5 years as a Regional Director in the healthcare industry I know what it takes to provide exemplarily care to our loved ones. As soon as you step into our home you can feel the warmth, hear the happiness and see the calming atmosphere which welcomes you to Parsons Grange. We have an outstanding care team that dedicate their time to ensure our residents live safe and well.
Food is such an important part of our residents lives and they really are spoilt for choice from our in house chef team. Along with the fantastic range of lifestyle activities our team has available to encourage and stimulate our residents. Parsons Grange has many wonderful facilities which brings beautiful social opportunities, and the home itself is certainly a luxury way of living.
I love working in care homes – I was a Senior Nurse in another care home before I joined the Parsons Grange team. I enjoy getting to know residents well and supporting them with their emotional and physical needs. The key attributes that a good Nurse needs are to be caring, compassionate, to have empathy, professionalism and excellent communication/people skills. Flexibility is key as no two days are the same!
I'm also the Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Champion for Parson's Grange. It's my job to establish and maintain a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness so that residents, colleagues and visitors keep safe.
I enjoy working in the close-knit Parsons Grange team. We work together well to support residents and deliver care that’s personalised to their needs and wishes. It’s very rewarding getting to know residents’ families too, and we work with them and the resident to ensure the care and experiences we’re providing are fulfilling their needs and wishes.
I’m a Registered General Nurse and joined the Parsons Grange team because I was keen to develop my experience in social care. When you work as a nurse in a care home, you can get to know the people you care for really well and make a genuine difference to their life.
I was also keen to work in a new home as part of a new team with the opportunity to set a high standard of care from day one.
In my role I think it’s important to have compassion and empathy, to treat people with respect, to have excellent attention to detail – and to be able to make decisions quickly.
In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, the cinema and eating out, and having nice holidays!
I’m an experienced Registered Mental Health Nurse and I’ve worked as an Activities Coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Society, so I’m very aware of how important it is to fulfil the lives of older people, particularly those who are living with dementia.
I wanted to join Care UK and the Parsons Grange team because the organisation is at the forefront of care, and I share its values around putting residents at the heart of everything we do. There’s a great team here at Parsons Grange – everyone is passionate and driven and focused on enhancing residents’ happiness and wellbeing.
I enjoy all aspects of my role, particularly seeing residents having fun and enjoying themselves. Knowing that I’ve helped to make that happen gives me a huge sense of fulfilment.
Away from work, I enjoy running and country walks with my dog. I’m passionate about wildlife and conservation. I also love food, trying new things – and travelling the world when I can!
My wife and I moved from America to the UK so we could be close to her relative with dementia who was living in a care home. When we would visit, I could see how well she was treated and how good the food was. This inspired me to make the change from working in restaurants to working in a care home.
Before joining Parsons Grange, I was a Senior Sous Chef at the Frontline Club in London. I wanted to work for an organisation where I could help people and now, I look forward to coming into work every day. My drive and passion for cooking helps me bring a smile to the people we care for.
I have a Business degree and my background is in the corporate world: I worked in recruitment at Microsoft for ten years and at Mizuno, a sportswear brand.
I was keen to work at Parsons Grange because Care UK’s values are very similar to my own. I’m passionate about great care and treating everyone with respect, dignity and kindness. Everyone at the home is passionate about working together to support residents to live fulfilling lives.
My favourite part of the day is catching up with colleagues and sharing ideas and information so that we can continue to support residents and their families to the best of our ability while driving the home forward.
I’m looking forward to working with the team and residents to bring Care UK’s vision and values to life at Parsons Grange and continue to make a difference to residents’ lives.
I moved to Parsons Grange from being the Supervisor in a cleaning company where I oversaw 60 colleagues in different locations. I was also a Passenger Service Supervisor at Heathrow Airport for six years. I thought this role looked like a great opportunity, and I was eager to learn some new skills. I’m a people person and love helping others.
I enjoy the fact that there’s always something new to learn at Parsons Grange – it could be about a new resident and how they like things to be done; it could be about how best to support a new team member. It’s important to be ready to take on any challenge and to go the extra mile for residents and their families.
I love the early mornings when I greet the residents and find out how they are. I enjoy spending time with them, chatting and seeing them smile. I’m determined to support residents to enjoy the best possible life in a happy and safe environment. Their wellbeing is my number one priority.
