Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
“I really didn’t know what to expect, but now 20 years on I cannot see myself doing any different job.”
Kelly has worked in the Health and Social Care Sector for 20 years, beginning her career in a nearby care home - never thinking she'd get further than the interview! Since then Kelly has worked in three different care homes, starting as a Care Assistant and working her way up to Home Manager. She says “I love my job and I get massive job satisfaction knowing that by doing what others may think is a small task, makes a massive impact on the residents life.”
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I have worked in this home since November 2020 but officially as the manager since January ‘21. I like many things about the company. I like the company values, ethos and open culture. Everyone is so friendly and supportive.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I like the welcoming atmosphere and the residents and staff are all so friendly and supportive to each other. What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes? I have interest in the outdoors and love nothing more than a stroll with my two dogs. I would like to take up photography as a hobby.
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
I am proud I received a long service award at my previous home. I was also particularly proud to once hear a professional state “every home needs a Kelly”.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
My biggest achievement is a very personal one, and that is learning to stand on my own two feet, and knowing that my dad would be proud of me.
What are your Qualifications?
I have undertaken my NVQ and completed my Levels 2, 3, and a Level 5 in Leadership and Management. I have worked in 3 care homes in my career, beginning as a Care Assistant in a nursing home for 7 years. For career progression I moved to a residential home also as a Care Assistant, and was then promoted to Senior Care Assistant, eventually moving up to Deputy Manager and then Registered Manager.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
This is not something a lot of people like to think about, and I would say do the research. Look into the care that the home offer rather than the environment/cosmetics.
