“I was first inspired by my Grandmother to work with older people at the age of 12 when I started helping at the local nursing home…and from there it all began!
I feel so lucky to go to work every day to do a job that I don’t just enjoy, but I absolutely love. The happiest part of my day is speaking with the residents and supporting my staff to become the best they can possibly be.
Together with my staff teams, we understand that making the decision to move into a care home is difficult and that feeling you have made the right choice is incredibly important. Each of the homes holds a special place in my heart for very different reasons and it is very important to find out what would make it special for you when choosing your new home.
