Hi, my name is Careen, and I am the General Manager here at Kernow.
I have been nursing for 35 years and have spent most of my career in the private, nursing home sector.
Although I am an 'old school' RGN my interest and passion lies with dementia and complex mental health care; it is these that have guided my career and further study choices.
I now hold post registration qualifications in nursing, training, education, dementia and management which along with my experience have equipped me to deal with the day to day issues inherent in running a busy nursing home.
I have worked at Kernow House, in various roles, for the past eleven years and relish the fact that no two days are the same.
My role is to lead my team to deliver the consistent, high quality and individualised care that our residents deserve and I am proud to work with a team who share my enthusiasm for providing this.
