My name is Kristy and I have worked at Alice Grange since March 2009. I started work as a Bank Carer – a job that was completely new to me, but which I soon found I loved.
After my time as a Carer, I was promoted to the position of Home Trainer. As a Home Trainer, it was my job to ensure that Alice Grange was compliant with all legislative and mandatory training and that the training delivered helped make our home a special place to be, with highly trained and motivated staff. I am very proud to say that I was nominated as Best Home Trainer at the Barchester Care Awards during my time in that role.
In March 2016, I was promoted to Unit Lead and set up a completely new residential community within the home. This was very exciting and my team and I worked so well together that we were nominated for a 'Best Team' award at the National Care Awards.
I am now the Deputy Manager here and I am very proud of Alice Grange; I love my job and have never once had a day at work that hasn’t filled me with joy.
