Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
Richard has worked in the Health and Social Care sector for 18 years. He began his career at Cedar Court as a Care Assistant, before working his way up to becoming Home Manager in 2016. Richard has always enjoyed the company of the elderly and hearing about their life stories, which is why he jumped at the change to work at Cedar Court.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
Four Seasons Health Care gives you the opportunity to better yourself and work your way up if you wish. I’ve found it’s a very supportive company!
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The residents are what makes my job so special and enjoyable. Every day brings new stories, challenges and lots of laughter.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
My family along with my residents are my biggest priority. I finally married the love of my life in 2019 after 23 years!
I also love to be out in the garden, which is a bonus as Cedar Court has a lovely big garden and my residents love to get involved helping me with gardening
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
I’m extremely proud of being nominated for and winning the Dementia Care Champion of the Year 2019. I was also nominated for Best Dementia Home Manager at The National Care Awards and I was selected for the final 5, but unfortunately was pipped to the post for that one.
What are your Qualifications?
I started as a Care Assistant in 2002 and after completing my NVQ2 & 3, I was offered the job of Team Leader, which I thoroughly enjoyed, as I love a challenge. In 2013, I became the Deputy Manager and then Home Manager in 2016, which I feel is my vocation in life.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
Pick up the phone and have a chat, do as much research as you can and don't be afraid to ask lots of questions. If the home is right, you will just get a gut feeling as soon as you walk in (well, this is what all of our relatives tell us anyway!).
