Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
Sammy is extremely passionate about the health care sector and is dedicated to constantly broadening her knowledge by undertaking numerous qualification. She has worked at Chasedale for almost 16 years, starting as a newly qualified nurse and progressed to being the Home Manager.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I was extremely impressed that the company offered a lot of support and development opportunities. Also, the people working here ensured that I would also be able to learn from them too.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Since starting at Four Seasons Health Care, I have thoroughly enjoyed every role I’ve had whilst progressing within the company. In my current role, it’s fantastic having oversight of how care is delivered to our residents, but also still having quality time with them.
Their individual characters is what drives my compassion and motivation to do what is best for them and the staff that genuinely care for them.
Having worked in other roles, I have always had more sense of job satisfaction within the care sector. After all these years, I still look forward to coming into work each day.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
I am a mum to two sons who play American football, so I love going to their matches and when they’re not on the pitch, they entertain me with their humour. We also have lots of animals, including chickens that I am constantly chasing away from my aubergines and courgettes!
I have loads of hobbies and interest, including painting, woodcarving and other crafts. Some may say I’m a bit of a nerd as I love to study!
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
I won a national award several years ago in recognition of my work in challenging behaviour and dementia. However, my proudest achievement is my current role. I wanted this position ever since I first started as a care assistant and I worked hard to achieve this.
What are your Qualifications?
I am a qualified psychiatric nurse and I developed one of the country’s first all-male units for challenging behaviours. I continue to develop my knowledge both academically and personally. Having completed my level 5 in Leadership and Management, I have recently signed up for a chartered manager degree with FSHC and level 7 in Operational Management through my own funding.
Also, I have recently qualified as a Reiki master and trainer, qualified herbalist and qualified aromatherapist. Moreover, I am qualified in stroke management, educational psychology, histology and genetics. To add to the list, I am currently studying hypnotism, massage, and crystal therapy.
