We’d like to introduce our friendly Wellington Vale team who are determined to be the difference in senior care.
What I do
I am really pleased and excited to be a part of Wellington Vale’s team. I felt privileged to be involved in the recruitment of our team alongside our General Manager. My role as an Administrator is to provide support to all the departments and the residents within our care home.
My qualification as an Accounts Assistant and my experience as an Administration Manager have given me the knowledge and skills to assist with any requirements.
I am a working mum so I enjoy spending my spare time with my daughter. I also like to run as a personal hobby, keeping myself active.
What I do
My role is to ensure that our team is inspired to provide the highest standard of care for our residents in the luxury environment of our home. I have clinical and managerial experience, which allows me to support the Nursing and Care staff on all the floors. I work closely with my team who will always go the extra mile to ensure we are able to enhance the lives of our residents.
In my late teens, I qualified as a Chef and worked in the catering industry for 15 years. After this, I trained to become a Nurse.
I am a qualified Nurse Specialist Practitioner with over 18 years of experience in a variety of clinical and managerial fields. I have a Registered Manager’s award that I studied for in Wales, a BSc (Hons) in Public Health & District Nursing, and an extended and supplementary nurse prescribing qualification. I am passionate about learning and really believe you learn new things every day.
I believe I can bring solid experience and a strong skill set to support the residents and staff in the home.
I have many interests and hobbies but my main passion is my three dogs. I love the beaches and countryside where I live, enjoy travelling and all types of sewing. I really enjoy spending time with family and friends and think laughter is the best medicine.
What I do
I am the Activity Co-ordinator at Wellington Vale, and my role is to compose activities and events for the residents that are inclusive, enjoyable and exciting. I liaise within the local community, arranging community events within the home and visits to outside events too – this helps to promote a social network for our residents. My role includes activity plans based on well-being, mental stimulation, physical well-being and, of course, the most important ingredient: fun.
I am a qualified teacher and trainer with many years’ experience organising events and charity fundraisers. I have worked in care in the community and been a Carer. I have acquired skills from many areas including hospitality, customer support, finance and administration. The most recent was an entertainment company I set up which required creativity, planning and organisational skills.
I am a family orientated person who enjoys spending time with friends and family. I am currently in the middle of composing a novel and I enjoy learning new skills on my days off.
