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 trained as a nurse as I'm passionate about caring and about delivering quality care. Before joining Care UK in 2011 I'd worked for two other healthcare providers. I'd heard about the organisation's vision for older people's care, and I was keen to be a part of it. 

I believe that making the little moments count is all-important to helping an older person to live a meaningful life. We see the difference it makes and it motivates us to do more. I have a very caring team here at Tall Trees, and each of us, whatever our role, understands that we can make a big difference to residents. 

We've come a long way together at Tall Trees. We have a great team, and were focused on delivering the highest standards of care.
