I'm a qualified general nurse and Ive worked in nursing since the 1980s. I worked in emergency nursing for 20 years before moving into social care, first managing a small home and then managing larger homes. Before joining the Smyth Lodge team I was managing a 120-bed home.
I feel strongly that I and my team are here to help residents to live their best life. It's important to see them as a holistic person. They're a husband or wife, brother or sister, a mum or dad or a best friend. Theres a lot we can learn from them.
I love hearing residents and colleagues laughing together. Humour is so important. I enjoy engaging with my team, with the people we care for and with their loved ones. I enjoy combining my nursing skills with being a leader. I believe that being a nurse – and a home manager – is an honour.Tracey Cheeseman Home Manager
