Manager's quote

My name is Catherine and I am the General Manager here.

I am a dually qualified Nurse – both RGN and RMN. I am qualified to teach adults and I have a Masters Degree in Business.

The care of older people is my chosen area of nursing and I have been working in the independent sector since I first qualified.

I am passionate about ensuring that the quality of life is as good as we can possibly make it for those we support and that our staff are appreciated for their devotion.

I believe that it is important that we all respect each other – both the residents we care for and our colleagues. We should proceed in an honest and fair way, we should demonstrate our responsibility to deliver excellent care and customer service and it is vital that we approach each day feeling valued, trusted and motivated.

Fun and laughter is an important ingredient of each day for all those who live and work in our home.
