The dedicated and experienced team at Riverside will provide your loved one with care that’s completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes.
I’m a registered mental health nurse with my Level 5 qualifications in management, a diploma in nursing and a master’s degree in community care.
I joined Care UK because of its strong reputation for providing person-centred care and because it values team members.
As Deputy Manager, I provide leadership, management and day-to-day operational support for care colleagues to ensure that Riverside remains a safe and compliant environment. I enjoy leading and empowering colleagues to develop person-centred care planning, which improves the quality of care that the residents receive.
In this role it’s important to encourage team members to learn and develop their skills. You need to have sound clinical knowledge about physical and psychological needs and be approachable, value others and work well as part of the Riverside team.
When I’m not working, I enjoy gardening and spending time with my grandson who lives in South Wales.
I qualified as a nurse and came to live in the UK in 2010.
I always wanted to make a positive difference in people’s lives. At Care UK, there are always opportunities for career development and growth. I’ve worked here for nine years and have been promoted from Unit Manager to Clinical Lead and now Deputy Manager. As a part of this, I’ve completed a number of trainings and qualifications.
My job is to lead, direct, supervise and support the team to provide a good standard of care, and thereby improve the experience for residents living in Riverside.
Having a passion for care is the top-most quality to work in a care home setting. You should have a good understanding of people you look after and have a vision to improve their quality of life. As a leader, you need to lead by example and demonstrate to your team how to make people feel valued and respected.
My favourite part of the day is my daily walk round, which helps me plan and organise my day and stay up-to-date with any ongoing events and concerns in the home.
I love cooking when I’m not working. I enjoy preparing traditional south Indian dishes with authentic tastes and serving them to my friends and family.
