Ruth Todd’s Profile

I love to

I love to spend time with my family, I'm a ‘homebody’ and prefer people to visit me so I can make everyone food and entertain.

Experience

I have worked in care since 2004; I started as a Care Assistant working in a nursing home and have also worked in the community and voluntarily keeping older people company in their own homes. I went on to complete my Nurse training at Northumbria University specialising in Learning Disability Nursing.

I started working at FSHC in April 2009 as a newly qualified Nurse. I became Deputy Manager in 2010 and then Home Manager in 2014 and I now manage a 90 bed home supporting people with Dementia, general nursing needs, physical disabilities, learning disabilities and mental health needs.

I am passionate about

I am passionate about person centred care and ensuring we deliver care that has the person at the heart of it. I believe life stories are an integral part of providing good quality care and that all staff should have empathy toward the person they support.

What I like about working for FSHC

The support to develop in your career and also the passion the company shows in bench-marking and improving care standards.
