Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
Ruth has worked in the Health and Social Care sector for ten years. She worked as a care assistant whilst completing her studies at college and university to gain her degree in nursing. As a child, Ruth always wanted to work in care, as she was passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. Ruth was particularly interested in working as a mental health nurse as she wanted to support individuals experiencing some of the most difficult times of their lives.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I liked the sense of community Four Seasons provides for the team members. It’s great because you never feel alone as the company always provides support to you, ensuring you are providing the best possible care.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
When taking the position as Clinical Lead at Tall Oaks, I only planned to be here temporarily whilst I learnt some new skills. However, nearly four years later, I have progressed to Deputy Manager and now Home Manager. I fell in love with Tall Oaks as it truly feels like a little family unit filled with caring and hardworking team members who strive to provide the best care possible. Most importantly, the relationships I formed with our residents was the key element of why I wanted to build a career at Tall Oaks. I felt they deserved my passion and willingness to support them to live their lives to the fullest and to be happy.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
When I’m not in work, I love spending time with my little boy Harry, my husband and his two daughters. I also enjoy being active by going to the gym.
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
I have worked hard to progress from qualifying as a nurse to achieving my first role as a Home Manager. I am proud of my dedication to improve, gain new skills and further my knowledge. I have been responsible for supporting the roll-out of the dementia care framework within the home, which has increased team knowledge and improved resident care.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
My biggest achievement outside of my career is my little boy harry, he is my sunshine!
What are your Qualifications or Work Experience?
I qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in 2014, which involved spending time working in a psychiatric intensive care unit for children. Although this was an intense job, it was extremely rewarding and it has made me the nurse I am today - not afraid of a challenge!
As I was very keen to progress and challenge myself, I became a team leader before moving onto a new area of mental health services. My new role was based in a secure male rehabilitation unit, which focused on supporting those individuals to make a change with the view of returning to a normal life. I have also gained experience as an acting manager of a children’s eating disorder unit, which was a fantastic experience and was incredibly rewarding. In 2016, I joined Tall Oaks with the intention of staying for only six months. However, I fell in love with the job, residents and the team.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?

Finding care is a daunting experience but the team at Tall Oaks are here to support you and promise to provide the best care possible.
