Hi, my name is Paula amd I am the Acting Deputy Manager here at Wheatlands.
I first joined Wheatlands in 2001 as a Care Assistant, not knowing what to expect from the role, and I was blown away. I progressed to Senior Carer and then I had a break to start my family.
On my return to Wheatlands, I changed my role a little so that I could work nights, in order to meet the needs of my family. I worked nights for four years and then decided that I needed a new challenge, so I took four years off.
I never felt complete without Wheatlands in my life, so when the role of Team Leader became available, I applied and was overjoyed to be given the role in 2017. Since then, I have never looked back. Wheatlands is the residents' home and I am very honoured to support them here and love getting to know them.
