I’ve worked for Care UK for over five years.
I wanted to work for the organisation because I wanted to make a difference to other people’s lives. Care UK puts residents at the everything it does, which echoes my own commitment to care.
I started out as a care assistant and absolutely loved the work. I progressed to team leader, Unit Lead, Unit Manager and now Deputy Manager, which I’m incredibly proud of. Care UK offers superb training and I’ve been fortunate to complete its ‘Future Deputy Manager’ course.
Perry Manor is a wonderful home with a genuine family atmosphere. More than anything, I love supporting the residents and just chatting to them, learning about their lives and achievements.
We’re a very forward-looking and innovative care home in all aspects of care, and everything we do is always aimed at enhancing the care and quality of life of the people we care for.
I joined Perry Manor in 2022 having managed a small care home for over 9 years.
After taking some time out to raise a family, I returned to work in a sales position but missed the care industry and how fulfilling it is as a career. This role at Perry Manor is ideal for me because of that reason.
My favourite part of my role is helping people to find the perfect place for their loved one to receive care. The team at Perry Manor are lovely, welcoming and friendly so it isn’t hard to see why Perry Manor is the best place to receive care.
In my personal time, I love spending time with family and friends. I love a day out with the kids, or hiking with friends. To unwind, I enjoy reading a good book with a nice glass of red!
I joined Care UK (in 2016) because I was keen to work for an organisation that treats its people with respect and gives them opportunities to achieve and succeed in their roles.
Before moving here, I was a healthcare assistant in other local care homes.
I have the best job because I get to have fun with the residents. We do so many different things: we get creative, we dance, play games – you name it! I also organise some of our events, including Care Home Open Day.
Working here gives me all sorts of opportunities to try new things and to challenge myself. You never quite know what each day will bring! We have a very supportive management team in the home who help you to do anything you set your mind to. We have the attitude that anything is possible, both for residents and for colleagues.
I joined Perry Manor because of Care UK’s strong values as a care provider.
Before this, I was working as a Sous Chef.
I’m proud that the food I provide makes a difference to residents everyday. Everyone in the care home works hard to do our best to support residents. My favourite part of each day is lunchtime. Serving food to the residents and making sure they have the best mealtime experience makes my role fulfilling.
It’s important as the Head Chef to be motivated, compassionate, empathetic, understanding and organised.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing rugby, video games, and music, as well as travelling.
When I left university I was determined to work in an organisation where the people were passionate about the work they did.
Care UK was just such a place, and I’ve worked here pretty much since I graduated in 2014.
This role is a great combination: I enjoy working on the details, on rotas and planning, but I also really enjoy the interaction I get to have with residents, families and colleagues every day. There’s good balance and variety. There’s still lots to learn, but I was very proud to receive a regional award for ‘Going the Extra Mile’ last year.
I used to work in a maintenance role at Debenhams, as well as on the shop floor for over 30 years.
When I wanted a different role and a chance to make a difference to other people’s lives, I saw this role and thought I’d apply. I haven’t looked back.
I enjoy applying my experience and skills in a care home setting. I work well in a team and I’m always approachable. Getting used to all the necessary checks has probably been the biggest challenge!
By far the best part of my day is interacting with the residents as well as my colleagues here at Perry Manor. A recent challenge, which I enjoyed being involved with, has been launching our new Malvern suite, which provides specialist care for people with complex needs.
In my free time I enjoy going to car boot sales and seeing what I can find. I’m also into photography and collecting vintage games consoles. If you have any you’re looking to get rid of, let me know!
