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 moved to Skylark House as Deputy Home Manager in 2016. I’d previously worked in a smaller care home in Shoreham as Deputy Manager. Care UK had a good reputation as a respected care provider that prioritises its people’s development and the wellbeing and happiness of all residents.

I’m in my element when I’m with residents and learning more about their lives – that’s the best part of what I do. Interacting with them and knowing I’m making a difference to their day is a great feeling. I also enjoy the compliance and governance part of my role. I start and finish every day with a smile, and that’s what makes me happy. 

A recent highlight for me was being named one of the top 50 leaders in care by Care Home Professional magazine. I’ve worked in care since 2012, when I moved to the UK. I started as a Care Assistant and I’m very proud to have reached the pinnacle of being the Manager of an excellent care home.

My goal as Home Manager is to take Skylark House to an ‘outstanding’ CQC rating. I have a strong team of fantastic people. We all have residents’ happiness and wellbeing in our hearts, and I’m determined to make positive changes to residents’ lives.
