Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
“The satisfaction of making a difference on a resident’s quality of life is something that stays
David joined Four Seasons Health Care as an ambitious individual, who takes great satisfaction in making a difference for the residents at Redwell Hills. As a manager of both a care home and an Under 11s football team, and a dad of 3, David is an influential figure in more than one area of his life.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I joined Four Seasons Health Care to develop my career and work for a larger company. Previously I have been a manager in smaller family run businesses and wanted to experience working for a larger scale employer. In Four Seasons, there are so many
opportunities to develop my career. I have been a Home Manager for a number of years and I am ambitious – I wish to develop my career to become a Regional Support Manager and
then Regional Manager in time, but I am happy to be a Home Manager for number of years yet, as I am only young.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The best thing about my job is the satisfaction that I get out of implementing change to provide the highest standard of care for the residents who live at Redwell Hills. The satisfaction of making a difference on a resident’s quality of life is something that stays with you.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
I am a manager not only at work but in my hobby also, as I manage an Under 11’s football team in my spare time. I hold training sessions weekly and also have weekly match days, which I absolutely love. I am very passionate about making a difference and this satisfies that need – I have been involved with the club I manage for a few years and have seen some unbelievable changes to children’s abilities in that time, simply with good coaching. The sense of achievement and satisfaction I get is unbelievable.
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
My biggest achievement in my career was completion of my NVQ Level 5 in Leadership and
Management. I never thought when I first started out in the care sector that I would be a manager and achieving what I have.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
I am a dad of three children; 2 girls and 1 boy. My kids are my life and, whilst it isn’t an achievement to have children, raising them as a separated parent is quite a challenge and I feel I have done as well as possible as they are growing up to be fine individuals.
What are your Qualifications?
I have my NVQ Level 5 in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care, and NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care. I also have a qualification as a Communication and Interaction Training Lead (CAIT) in Dementia Care and Train the Trainer. Additionally I hold a Level 2 Safeguarding NCFE, and Safe Handling of Medications NCFE.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
When looking for a care home the main advice I would give is not to take notice of the environment and decor of the home, but more that the team are responsive and that the atmosphere is warm, homely, and friendly. Take notice that the staff are engaging residents in person-centred activities, and that the residents’ appear well taken care of, to indicate the standard of care in the home.
