My name is Kara and I am the Deputy Manager here at Ritson Lodge.
I have over nine years of experience within the care sector, beginning my career in housekeeping and, shortly after, moving into catering.
Whilst working as a Carer, I developed a passion for helping and caring for others. I soon progressed, developing my skills and knowledge and eventually becoming a Senior Carer. I then pushed my career further by gaining my level 5 Management in Health and Social Care.
Working my way up has given me a unique insight into all the different job roles that help to run a care home, enabling me to be more knowledgeable in my current role.
