I’ve worked in a wide range of different areas of care, from mental health to eating disorders, drug and alcohol dependency, as well as older people’s care. As a home manager I feel it’s important to be open minded and open hearted, kind and to recognise everyone’s individual strengths. I’m here to help colleagues to develop and support residents to enjoy the best possible life.
I love the morning and late evening at Woodland Hall. In the mornings I spend my time talking to colleagues, residents and visitors. I feel very privileged to be working and supporting such wonderful people. In the evening I take five minutes to reflect on my day and see if there’s anything I could have done differently or better – then it’s on with the paperwork.
I joined Woodland Hall and Care UK in 2019. I’m from Greece, and have worked in older people’s care there. I’m passionate about music, theatre, drawing and literature myself, and I feel strongly about the benefits of music and drama for older people. In Greece I was proud to be able to present the work I did in older people’s drama at a national Alzheimer’s conference.
I’m very excited about joining the team at Woodland Hall. My aim each day is to see residents happy and enjoy whatever activities we’re doing – which is what we’re all passionate about. I’m looking forward to playing my part in enabling residents to live an interesting and enriching life, full of imagination, colour and happiness.
Before coming to Woodland Hall I was a customer representative in a building society, but I wanted to experience working in the care sector. While I’m used to working with different people, the care side of what I’m doing now makes my role much more rewarding.
I learn something new here every day and I’m using my existing skills to benefit the home and the team. I’m also enjoying meeting our residents’ family members and getting to know them.
