I’ve worked within the care sector for 15 years but only joined Care UK in 2021.
I wanted to work for an organisation with values that echoed my own. It’s also lovely to work in beautiful surroundings too, and Trymview Hall is stunning.
I love working in a care environment because I love meeting and getting to know others and to make a difference to their day. A smile and a chat can make a big difference to a resident. I think it’s important to be passionate about the work you do. This role demands a caring, understanding and compassionate approach. Being a good listener and team player is vital too. And you always need to be keen to support and help others – colleagues, residents and family members.
There’s always something new and exciting happening at Trymview Hall, and, right now, we’re creating our own home shop where residents will be able to buy day-to-day necessities and treats. I’m looking forward to the shop opening, and residents enjoying some extra independence as they have a browse and buy the things they need.
I’m a qualified nurse, and worked as a nurse for 12 years before I moved into medical sales as a regional business manager.
I joined Trymview Hall because I wanted to work within the care home sector so that I could use all my skills and experience. Care UK also has a wonderful reputation for delivering great care and for being a fantastic organisation to work for.
As a CRM it’s important to be personable, to understand people’s needs and the situation and feelings they’re going through. I want to find solutions for families and I’m passionate about delivering excellent customer service.
I love showing prospective residents and their families around Trymview Hall, getting to know them and sharing with them the amazing care and lifestyle that residents enjoy here. It’s been a challenge to learn a completely new role at my time of life, but my colleagues are all so friendly and supportive, which has made things easier. I’m looking forward to being part of the team and helping to make Trymview Hall a huge success.
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.
Before I joined the Trymview Hall team I was an Activities Coordinator in another home.
I’ve done a range of different jobs, but worked in HR for many years. However, I left my stable HR career in Spain to work in a completely different sector, in a completely different country, and in a completely different language! It was a scary but exciting move, and I’m so proud that I did it.
Working with older people is so rewarding, every day is different and brings new things to learn. My aim is always to create an activity programme that incorporates everyone’s preferences and needs. It’s wonderful to see residents happy and enjoying themselves, and doing things they love. I’m looking forward to being able to plan more outings and more ambitious activities for residents post-pandemic, so they can share different experiences together.
In my free time I like connect with nature in the outdoors, and enjoying long walks at the seaside or in the woods. I’m also always ready to dance, especially to Latin rhythms of course!
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.
Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.
Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide.

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.
