I first joined Care UK in January 2022.
I’ve worked as a chef for most of my career and I worked as a Lead Chef for British airways, focusing on their special meals production for flights.
To work well in this role, you need to lead by example and have a good listening ear. The importance of communication in the kitchen is a key priority for me and attention to detail on presentation. I enjoy cooking and developing menus in my job and I’m always thinking of ways to better the dish using the same elements, so that in mind, I look at the product, and presentation from our resident’s point, then reflect on the hard work.
In the future I would like to be within the development team to project new ideas and share my experience or develop junior chefs.
Away from work, I enjoy doing projects and going to car meetings as I have a classic car and I enjoy meeting others who share the same interests.
My mum, Eileen, adopted me when I was eight weeks old in 2011.
My full name is Bailieboro, after the town in Ireland where Mum comes from. My friends call me Bailie. You can too if you like.
I might have a few years under my collar, but I've discovered a new lease of life since I've been 'on the road' with Mum. Each week, we leave home in South Wales on a Monday and stay in a hotel for a few days so Mum can do her home visits.
I always go with Mum to her homes. I'm loving seeing all the residents and teams in the different care homes, and everyone welcomes me like a VIP. My special talent is to 'break the ice' with new residents and families. I switch on the charm – big smile, tail wagging – and no one can resist me. Instantly, a new person will start chatting to Mum about their dogs and other pets they've had – job done, ice broken! I do one-to-one resident room visits on request too.
I also like to ensure everything's running smoothly by attending home manager and ops director meetings. Don’t tell Mum, but I'm mainly here to keep my eye on her. Well otherwise she'll be jumping out of a plane again!
