Trusted to care

A closely-knit team of managers, carers, nurses and support colleagues – and each of us is dedicated to your loved one’s care, health and wellbeing.

I have many years’ experience of working in residential care, having worked for Richmond’s social services department from 1994 up until the time I joined Care UK in 2001. I later became manager of Whitefarm Lodge in 2004. The thing I like most about my job is the day-to-day contact with residents. I enjoy being a part of their lives and always make time to sit down for a chat and a good catch up with what everyone’s been up to.

We always support residents in whatever they want to do – and they often achieve fantastic things. For example, residents were concerned about the state of the pavements in the local area. So, over time, they raised awareness of this problem with the council and with the local paper too. Following the newspaper coverage, the council made the repairs that residents had been campaigning for.

Something else that I’m really proud of is the way that a group of residents with dementia worked with children from Grey Court School in Richmond and a nearby art gallery to produce a series of wonderful artworks. The theme of the artworks was ‘reminiscence’ and they included drawings, images, text and other multimedia elements. Both groups got a great deal out of the project, learning more about each other’s lives and understanding their different perspectives – and the artworks were very impressive too.
