What I do
I am part of the activities team at Sunnybank House. I help to provide fulfilling, varied and stimulating activities for our residents.
I have worked in the care industry for 27yrs covering all aspects of care within the Private sector, the community and the NHS.
I have worked in mental health, end of life and emergency care as a care assistant/ senior care assistant.
I enjoy running and paddle boarding in my spare time. I also love spending time with my friends and family!
At Sunnybank we use local produce to create fresh, appealing meals that offer good nutritional content for our residents. I have been at Sunnybank for nine months now and I love it here. Getting to know the residents is one of my favourite parts of the job so I always try to make time to get out and say hello.
I have almost 10 years’ experience catering in care homes, the last eight and half years of which were spent working in my previous home. I have a BTEC Level 2 in Food Preparation and have qualifications in Nutrition and Food Safety Management, and extensive training in textured diets. I am also a registered Dignity Champion.
When I am not at work I spend time with my family – I have 12 nieces and nephews who keep me busy. I enjoy cycling and am a huge movie buff with over 600 films in my collection at home.
