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 qualified as a Registered General Nurse in Brighton in 1988, and I have been in the role of Home Manager since 2006, working for various care providers.

I worked for Care UK previously between 2012 and 2015. When I was contacted to rejoin in 2018, I jumped at the chance to return to a provider that has a vision and values that align with my own.

As Home Manager, you need to be focused, dynamic and able to multitask, but also have a vision and a sense of humour. It’s a bit like being an orchestra conductor – you need to be able to oversee different aspects of the home, whilst keeping the whole home working as one to make sweet music.

I love being part of this team, especially when we work as one. I feel proud every day knowing that we make a difference to residents’ lives.

Outside of work, I love spending time in the countryside and walking with my husband and our dog Pixie. The New Forest is my favourite place, and we often pop there for a day or an overnight trip.
