Megan Best

Home Relations Manager

Megan has previous experience in property management, but her background is within the care industry; supporting residents in care homes and their own homes as a healthcare assistant for two years. Megan combined her experience of the property and care industries to take on the role of Home Relations Manager within care homes, which she has been doing since 2016.

“My first-hand experience of working in care enables me to have a deeper understanding of what new residents and their loved ones are experiencing and looking for. I am extremely passionate about supporting people through what is potentially a very difficult time, to ensure they are choosing a home for themselves or a loved one that they feel is ‘perfect’ for them. Moving into care is about taking the next step to improve wellbeing, stimulation and overall quality of life and it gives me great satisfaction to see residents flourish in this way.”
