At Smallbrook, we have a passionate and dedicated team focused on delivering outstanding dementia and frail elderly care. The team includes management, highly-trained and registered nursing and care staff, lifestyle co-ordinators, catering team and maintenance staff. We believe every member of the Smallbrook team plays a key role in ensuring we deliver the highest level of person-centred care.
I am a Registered Nurse and have worked in both hospital and residential settings for the past 13 years. Being in the nursing and caring profession was a calling for me. I am proud to work with a dedicated, resilient and hardworking team at Smallbrook Care Home. My role as Registered Manager has enable me to build meaningful relationship with our residents and families. I practice an open-door policy with my teams to raise suggestions and concerns. Seeing our residents face lit up when they interact with our team members makes my day!
I have been working in care services for 28 years and have specialised in management of nursing services for most of this time. I have been fortunate enough to work in hospital settings and the community which has shaped my career and what’s more, knowledge. My hands on caring approach is authentic and sets a bench mark for expected standards amongst my teams.
I pride myself on having the necessary qualifications, skill and competence to carry out my role effectively as Director of operations for Asprey – offering direct support to residents and staff on a day to day basis over both homes is fundamental so I can standardise the delivery and unify. Although I studied law alongside working at the local hospital some years ago, I quickly learnt that Law was not the vocation for me as my dedication to healthcare became more apparent – so safely I stored my certificates and returned to healthcare.
My empathy and drive will ensure each and every individual living in our care homes have access to the essential care required to meet their needs and supported by a caring team of skilled staff who will endeavour to place our residents at the centre of everything they do.
