I’ve worked as a chef in care homes for many years.
I’m very passionate about what I do. It’s important to understand the significance of every meal when you’re involved in care home catering. Each meal is important to the residents and can make the difference to their health and wellbeing. So seeing them smiling after enjoying their meal is the best reward.
We cook everything fresh daily at The Burroughs, so residents enjoy good quality, nutritious and delicious meals. It’s what they deserve.
I enjoy meeting new residents and learning about what they like. We try to keep things interesting, trying new foods and international dishes, as well as different cakes and snacks. When we get it right, there’s a real buzz around the place.
I’ve worked as a housekeeping manager in a big hotel, as well as a childminder. I joined the Burroughs in 2012 because I wanted to support older people and enable them to live a fulfilling life, with respect and dignity.
I’m keen to develop my skills, so, since I’ve been here, I’ve become a dementia champion, a falls champion, I’ve done my manual handling training, and I’m the in-house trainer for manual handling too. I’ve also passed my medication competency qualification, so that I can administer medication to the residents. I always enjoy this part of my work as it gives me the chance to talk to residents one-to-one and develop their trust in me.
In my free time I enjoy getting out in the fresh air, whether that means gardening, long walks with my dog or getting on my bike.
Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.

The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.
