What our Support Staff say

I have always lived close to the area and the home but I was first made aware of a role here when my sister-in-law started working at the home. I have worked in many roles in the home, including within the kitchen team and domestic team. I did leave the home to work elsewhere for a short period of time before I came back. Working here had always been a great experience and I missed the atmosphere in the home. A cleaning role opened, and so I applied for it straight away. I was happy in the role, but I covered some shifts whilst our activity coordinator was away and absolutely loved it, so I joined as activity coordinator part-time until I was offered the role permanently - I have been here since. I really like the way the home is run, and how empowered the residents are in making decisions around the home.
