Im very proud that I started my career as a Nurse at St Vincents House and have worked my way to Deputy Manager.
Care UK is excellent at seeing the potential in colleagues and supporting them to develop their skills and expertise.
The team at St Vincents House is very close-knit and hardworking. We support each other to do our best for residents and their families. Theres always a lot to juggle each day. In my role I tackle anything from recruiting new team members to supporting colleagues with training, getting to grips with new policies and procedures, and liaising with relatives.
What I do is only possible with the support of our amazing team. They never cease to surprise me with their dedication and passion for what they do.
I love coming in to St Vincents House each morning and saying hello to the residents.
Its nice to give people a morning smile to wake up to. My role is all about supporting residents to enjoy every day to the full. Were here to create fun and laughter and to help them to make new memories.
I love listening to residents stories, particularly ones about the Second World War. Wherever we can, we strive to make wishes come true, going above and beyond for the people we care for. We have supported a couple to renew their wedding vows, which was very special. We treated the day just like a wedding, with a professional photographer.
When Im not at work, I enjoy socialising with my friends and going on weekend breaks. I also like to unwind with a bit of Netflix.
I’ve been with Care UK since 2008.
I’ve had lots of opportunities and all the support I needed to develop and progress and to qualify in my role. I’ve worked as a care support worker myself, so I’m experienced in the care environment.
I love my role now though as I’ve learnt new skills and overcome new challenges. I like to think I help to make the atmosphere at St Vincent’s House friendly and warm by supporting everyone with good service. I love the team I work with and we’re all passionate about making residents happy.
