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.

Having a role in leadership is a privilege, making the resident’s and teams day is important to me.

I worked for Care UK for 8 years, Care UK is an excellent care provider to work for, it’s a growing organisation focused on the delivery of quality care.

As a Home Manager, I am constantly striving to make the home a better place. At Field Lodge we’ve been a part of several firsts for Care UK, which I’m really proud of. We were the first Care UK home to provide residents with Namaste care and the first to be awarded the ‘Care for VIPs’ accreditation from Worcester University.

I’m very passionate about supporting individuals living with dementia, both initiatives acknowledge a gold-tier level of care as well as heightening support for relatives thanks to a strong focus on person-centred care. From the levels of support and care, I have been shortlisted for ‘Dementia Care Manager of the Year’ at the National Care Awards 2023.

I am keen to create an inclusive environment for everyone, we celebrate all cultures and LGBTQ+ with a variety of activities. Field Lodge has a lovely homely atmosphere, I’m incredibly proud of the whole team who make the home such a comfortable place for everyone.
