Luminita Triff

Home Manager

Luminita Triff

I joined Care UK in 2015 after achieving my nursing qualification in Romania and working there as a Nurse.

I was looking for a new challenge and decided to apply for a nursing job in the UK. Care UK was recommended to me, and I’ve been here for the past eight years.

Moving to the UK and succeeding in my role in a completely new health system has been the biggest professional challenge in my career. I’ve risen the ranks, starting as a nurse and moving to Clinical Lead to Deputy Manager and now Home Manager.

To do this job well, it’s important to be caring and compassionate, have effective communication skills, problem solving skills, leadership and resilience. My favourite part of the working day is when I feel that I’ve made a positive difference in someone’s life. I aim to do the best I can to fulfil my job role while practising kindness.

Since I moved to the UK, the residents at Prince George House and my colleagues have become my second family, and I love and value them all as much as my own family.

When I’m not working, I like to chat with my son and his family who live in Romania. I also unwind by reading, listening to music, playing training programmes to improve my language skills, watching films, and travelling.

Sarah Bacon
Deputy Manager

I joined Care UK because I wanted to work for a reputable care provider with great values and opportunities for colleagues. For me, taking the leap from years in retail into the unknown in care was a huge highlight in my career.

In this role, you need to have empathy and honesty, good organisational skills and the desire to always improve. It’s also important to have patience and a drive to succeed and achieve the best for residents.

The best part of my role is seeing residents happy and giving their relatives peace of mind and confidence that they made the right decision in trusting Prince George House with their loved one’s care. Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all colleagues and residents is the most important part of what I do.

When I’m not working, I love travelling and seeing the world. In my spare time, I also love spending time with my family.

Customer Relations Manager

I joined the team at Care UK after working for 15 years in the banking sector. Moving into the care sector was a complete change – and a steep learning curve – but Ive never looked back. I was keen to make a difference to peoples lives and I love the fact that my role at Prince George House enables me to do that.

Moving to a care home can be an extremely difficult and emotional time for families, so Im proud to be able to make that journey a little easier. My role involves meeting and guiding potential residents and their families through the process of choosing a care home. 

There is a fantastic atmosphere here at Prince George House, and the team work tirelessly to provide the best care for residents.

Jamie Steele
Clinical Lead

I have worked in the healthcare industry for 12 years, working my way from a Care Assistant to Team Leader, Deputy Manager and finally Home Manager. But my dream was always to be a nurse, and I have had some extensive experience in the A&E department, as well as working in a home with a new nursing suite.

I worked at Prince George House as a Team Leader when I was much younger, so it’s great to be back. It feels like coming home. Getting this role as Clinical Lead has been the highlight of my career! Passing my degree to become a nurse was a huge moment for me, but I feel like every day I am in my dream role.

For someone in my role, you need to be well-organised, adaptable and have good people skills. Seeing residents enjoying themselves in the coffee shop, listening to live music and having fun is easily my favourite part of the day. When colleagues and residents say ‘thank you’, it means the world to me.

When I’m not working, I like to go on long walks, travel to new countries and see West End shows.

Jacqueline Hammond

Lifestyle Coordinator

Care UK is a good care provider to work for, and being a Lifestyle Coordinator here has been the highlight of my career to date.

In this role, you need to be friendly, understanding and patient. It’s also important to have good communication skills and a sense of humour. This role is all about being a team player.

Knowing I have helped lift the spirit of one of the residents and put a smile on their face makes me proud of what I do. It’s great to see the residents having a fun time with our activities.

When I’m not working, I like walking my dogs, socialising and spending time with my family.

Dinah Barrett
Dinah Barrett
Activities Coordinator

It was my dream to work with older people and in a role where I could make a difference in people’s lives. Before becoming Activities Coordinator, I worked in the home’s day centre.

In this role, you must have a sense of humour, fresh ideas and understand that each resident is different. The most important part of my role is making sure that I spend time with each resident and trying my best to fulfil their dreams.

I feel proud when I can see the differences we make to residents’ lives, and when I have the opportunity to listen to them talk about their life when they were younger. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy walking, being with my family, shopping, home DIY, gymnastics and spending time in my hobby room at home.

Head Chef

I’ve been working at Prince George House since 2013. As well as enabling me to further my catering career and learn new skills, it’s been fantastic to have been in a role where I’ve been able to help and support the residents. I’ve worked my way up from kitchen assistant to second chef, and now head chef, which I’m proud of.

I know how much the residents look forward to meal times and I enjoy sending out the meals knowing that there’s a big expectation from them! I enjoy hearing their feedback and when I can I like to get out of the kitchen to chat to them. I’m always keen to ensure we’re giving them what they want, and that’s the best way to find out.

Claire Mann
Claire Mann
Business Administrator

I joined Care UK because I was looking for a career change and had heard good things. I’ve now been with Care UK for nearly six years, and it’s a very rewarding place to work.

I started as Receptionist before being promoted to Business Administrator, where I’m responsible for making sure jobs are completed on time and helping others wherever possible.

In this role, it’s important to be patient, methodical, able to meet deadlines and work well under pressure. You also need to be caring, passionate and an all-round team player.

My favourite part of the day is seeing the residents in the coffee shop and having a catch up with them. When I worked as the Receptionist, I got to know them very well. Knowing that I’m playing an important part at Prince George House makes me proud of what I do.

I love spending time with my family and my seven-month-old granddaughter outside of work. I also enjoy walking, fitness and socialising with friends.

Head Housekeeper

I worked in the care industry as a domestic for four years before recently being promoted to Head Housekeeper. I previously worked as a Head Housekeeper for three years in hotel, but this promotion was the highlight of my career so far.

The best part of my day is coming into the home in the morning and seeing my team and the residents. It’s my responsibility to make sure the home they live in is a clean and safe environment.

To do this role well, you need to be hard-working, a team player and prepared for anything. I take great pride in seeing the home clean and tidy.

When I’m not working, I like to draw and paint, and play sports.

Charlotte Welham

I started working at Care UK in 2016. After having my son, I started as a domestic, then was promoted to Head Housekeeper before moving to my current role in maintenance.

Doing a maintenance job is not something I ever thought I would do in my lifetime. But when I was Head Housekeeper, I worked very closely with the maintenance man who taught me everything I needed to know. He had great patience with me and always told me I could do it. He built my confidence tremendously, and here I am!

In this role, I think you need to have good social skills as you’re dealing with contractors as well as residents and their relatives. When I’m doing my maintenance checks, I love being able to interact with the residents as I go around. They never fail to put a smile on my face.

Outside of work, I attend many activities with my son, and I also like to socialise with my family at the weekends.
