The most important aspect of my role as a home manager is ensuring that the residents in our care are given the best quality care and attention.
I think it’s important that a manager is approachable and visible around the home. I love walking around of the home talking to residents and my team and finding out what’s going on. It’s really fulfilling to see residents enjoying being in a happy environment, feeling safe and cared for.
There’s going to be lots happening over the coming months at the home – we’ve all sorts of plans for Stanley Park. We’ll be refurbishing parts of the home to bring it up to date and to create a more calming place to live for residents who have dementia. We’re planning lots of new training for the team that will enable them to deliver even better care. What’s more, we’ll be forging new links with the local community to tell more people about the great care we offer here at Stanley Park.
We have already finished our beautiful new garden areas where residents and their relatives can spend time relaxing together outdoors. I’m a big fan of the outdoors too. In the summer I go up the Northumberland coast to Cresswell and Druridge Bay. We’ve a mobile home up there and it’s wonderful to get away from it all.
