“I thrive at being able to help families and their loved ones at a time that can often feel daunting. I am always pleased to provide residents and relatives with all the options available to them to help them choose the right care home for them. I find it incredibly rewarding to see new residents laughing and making new friends. It makes my role feel even more worthwhile knowing that residents are not only being cared for by us, but that their overall wellbeing and happiness has improved.”
