Having been in the care industry for over 20 years, my experience has been gained in Nursing, Residential and EMI settings with BUPA and Independent providers. My roles have encompassed most elements of caring about people at various stages of their lives with varying cognitive ability. I first joined the care team at Shedfield Lodge in 2010 and progressed to the role of Care Plan Co-ordinator in 2013 and then to Head of Care in 2016 before becoming the Registered Manager in 2017. Having gained a QCF Level 5 Diploma in Leadership For Health and Social Care, I am currently undertaking a Level 7 Diploma. My mission is to provide a truly person-centred approach to care that recognises and values each individuals uniqueness, treats them with dignity and respect and understands the world from their prospective in an environment that supports their psychological needs ensuring their personhood, throughout.
