I have worked in the care sector for over 15 years, and I am responsible for looking after the domestic and laundry teams here at Milford, as well as working with other key personnel to maintain the appearance and décor of our lovely home.
Previous to taking on this role, I was the Activities Coordinator for over five years and retain overall oversight of the activities team. I am passionate about ensuring that the team delivers a varied and interesting programme of group and individual activities that promote the overall well-being of residents and meet their needs and interests.
Working with the residents, the activities, domestic and laundry teams, other staff, families, friends and volunteers, the aim is to make Milford House a home that offers a comfortable, welcoming, inclusive, vibrant, fun and supportive environment to live in.
I have a background in the hospitality industry as well as the care sector and I am qualified to NAPA NVQ Level 3 in Activity Provision and, through our membership of NAPA, committed to ensuring that best practice and the latest developments in activity provision are incorporated into our daily work at Milford
My own particular interests are the arts, photography, crafts, gardening and the outdoors, and I enjoy incorporating these elements into the presentation of the home and the delivery of our activities where appropriate.
