Trusted to care in Crewe
Our people are what make Station House care home the warm and welcoming place that it is. We all work together to ensure residents make the most of every day and are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. You can find out more about us here.
I’m a Registered General Nurse by training and have worked at Station House for nearly 30 years. Before I joined the team here I was a sister on a general surgical ward. I also spent two years working on an acute medical ward. It was quite a change moving from an acute hospital setting to a care home.
But I do love working in older people’s care, so I’m pleased I made the move, and I love this home, which is why I’ve worked here for so long! One of the best things about it is spending time with the residents. In other nursing roles you don’t usually get the time or the opportunity to get to know the people you’re caring for. I’m proud to have progressed to become part of the management team.
In my spare time I volunteer at a local cat rescue shelter. I also have 3 dogs, so we go lots of walks. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, as well as keeping my garden tidy, and doing some retail therapy.
I’ve spent most of my nursing career in the private sector, and I joined Care UK in 2017. Prior to joining the Station House team I was a deputy manager in another care home.
Nursing is a fantastic career for the many areas you can work in, and the many challenges you can tackle. I’ve worked in a range of areas within the professional and explored different areas of interest. Here at Station House I’m enjoying doing the dual role of Unit Manager/Bed Manager. The wonderful thing about working in a care home is the interaction you have with residents, their families, and colleagues. It’s always an honour to meet new residents and their families and welcome them to our home.
I’m looking forward to continuing to improve the standards of care we provide for our residents, and to support my team to develop and progress their careers.
I joined Station House in 2016 because it has a good reputation in the local community, and Care UK is an excellent care provider.
I love the feeling of helping to make residents’ days better, and I enjoy chatting to them. There’s always more to learn, even about the people you think you know well.
I’ve been able to progress my skills and career in the five years I’ve been working at the home. I’m working towards a level 5 NVQ in Health and Social Care, and I’m doing a management course. I’ve also trained to be a moving and handling instructor.
I only recently moved into my current Unit Manager role, so I’m enjoying learning the additional responsibilities and I’m looking forward to supporting the team to develop and to deliver even better care.
I spent 35 years at Rolls-Royce/Bentley in manufacturing production engineering and administration. I wanted to continue working, so I joined Station House doing maintenance part-time in 2019. I was then promoted to my current role.
Time flies in this role. It’s a rewarding job with plenty to do and a lot of satisfaction. It can be challenging. People fund their care in different ways, which all needs to be tracked, and that’s one of my biggest challenges. Day-to-day I enjoy interacting with many different people: colleagues, residents and their families, as well as suppliers, contractors and visitors.
One of the highlights in this role was when I was nominated in the annual Care UK awards for my work. It was a proud moment.
Outside work I enjoy walking, gardening, DIY, spending time with my family and watching football. I’ve supported Leeds United for 50 years, as well as Nantwich Town, which is a non-league side.
Hello everyone! I’m settling in nicely at Station House. I only joined the home in July 2021 as a ten-week-old puppy. I’m a cockapoo and my mum is Unit Manager, Mandy. I live with her and her other dogs and enjoy helping her in her garden (although she’s not a fan of my digging for some reason).
You’ll often find me around Station House. In fact, the lovely residents chose my beautiful name. I think it suits me, don’t you? My daily tasks include room visits to check the residents are happy, serving up cuddles, meeting and greeting visitors and hoovering the floors. I love going for walks too. It’s nice to get out and have a sniff.
I’m still little, so even though my job keeps me busy, I like to take regular naps. Luckily for me there are lots of comfy places to sleep and plenty of laps to sit on at Station House!
