I have a degree in mental health nursing, and have worked as a unit manager for an acquired and traumatic brain injury service, which I set up, commissioned and staffed. I joined the Care UK team at Trymview Hall in 2019 because I wanted to work for a well-respected care provider that has a vision and values that are in line with my own.
It’s hugely exciting to be part of a brand new service and having the opportunity to shape how things are done. I’m looking forward to being part of the management team that’s developing a person-centred service for older people. What’s key is providing fantastic hands-on care to people, not just care that looks good on paper. Making sure people receive tailored care in a homely, family-oriented setting is all-important.
I’ve been a Registered Nurse since 2006 and a midwife for 8 years, and I worked in hospitals and schools back home in Jamaica. When I fancied bringing my nursing skills to benefit people in a new setting, my research showed me that Care UK was a great company to work for.
This is a new role for me, but I’m loving it and enjoying the challenge. As Deputy Home Manager at Trymview Hall, it’s important to have great people skills. You need to be honest, fair and a good listener for colleagues, residents and relatives alike.
I love the environment of Trymview Hall and we’re a great team that’s committed to doing the best for residents and their loved ones. I think the sky’s the limit for us here and I’m very excited at what we can achieve together.
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two young daughters so they keep me busy!
I’ve been a chef for 18 years, and a head chef for ten of those years. Previously, I was Executive Chef for the British Royal Legion.
I’m very focused on quality – on producing the best food that I possibly can for Trymview Hall residents. Working with fresh ingredients is key. It’s been fun and challenging starting the kitchen from scratch: I’ve ordered equipment and built shelving units, but I feel a strong sense of ownership over what we’re doing here, as a result!
Older people deserve the best food and dining experience, and I’m looking forward to leading a catering team who are dedicated to ensuring that residents receive that at each and every meal in our Bristol care home.
I’ve joined the Trymview Hall team from Chepstow Community Hospital, where I was Domestic Supervisor. I was keen to have more contact with the people I was supporting, so I thought a care home would be a good place to work. I’m also keen to develop my skills, and Care UK is a great place to develop.
I like to feel that I’ve made a positive difference to someone’s day, and I get that in big quantities here! I’m loving working with the residents, and making them smile. There’s so much to learn about them and I enjoy finding little ways that I can help make their day-to-day life better.
When I get the chance, I like to unwind by going to the gym and working out. It’s a good way to de-stress and clear my head.
I’ve been working in care homes in administration and training since 2014, and I joined the Trymview Hall team in 2019 because I’d heard good things about Care UK – it’s vision for care and the importance it places on supporting colleagues to progress their careers. I’m committed to developing my skills and I’m currently working towards an NVQ level 3 in Human Resources.
Being a Business Administrator in a care home is a role that keeps you on your toes, as there’s a lot to it. You can never know what each day will bring, and I enjoy that. It’s a privilege to meet residents and their families and to get to know them. I do what I can to ensure everyone’s happy and I always want to know if there’s anything more I can do to help residents, relatives and colleagues.
Maintenance has been my line of work since 2011. Before that I worked in building and engineering. I’ve worked in care homes before, and when I saw Trymview Hall taking shape I thought it would be a great place to work as the quality of the home stood out.
It’s important to be proactive and self-motivated in this role, so my experience of being self-employed has really helped me. I’m always looking for new ways to improve the environment for residents, and I love seeing how happy it makes people when I fix something for them.
I’m excited about being part of a new team in an amazing new home. I’m already meeting lots of new people and getting to know the residents and their life stories.
In my free time I like keeping active, whether that’s playing basketball, going to the gym, walking the dog or cycling.
