Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
“Fulfilling the lives of our residents is my main passion within my job role, to ensure that they are happy and well cared for and that all their needs are met to the best of our ability within our home.”
Lesley has worked in the care sector for over 30 years, giving her a wealth of knowledge and experience. She has worked in a variety of roles including domestic assistant, care assistant, senior carer, team leader and unit manager before eventually becoming a home manager. Lesley joined Westroyd House in 2013.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I have worked in the care sector since I was 18 and could not find a company whose values aligned with my own. After reading all about Four Seasons online, I found that their values were the same as mine and just knew they would be a great company to work with.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The most special thing for me is going into work every day and seeing our residents smiling, a smile can say a lot without any words.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
I have three beautiful Grandchildren who take up most of my time when I’m not working. I also enjoy spending time with my family, pottering in the garden and going to car boot sales to find a bargain.
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
One of my biggest achievements is being in the job role I have now. I have worked very hard to get here and am very proud of my team at Westroyd House, I feel we have achieved a lot.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
My biggest achievement is having the wonderful family that I have. They have always been incredibly supportive in everything I do.
What are your Qualifications?
I have completed several NVQ’s in social care and have been part of an accredited Dementia Training programme, I have also been part of a three day care management course with FSHC.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
Always read as much as possible about the home you are interested in, including looking at their last CQC report and look at feedback from current relatives at the home. Call the home and ask to speak to the Home Manager, make sure you have a list of questions in front of you that you feel you need to ask. Wherever possible, I would always advise enquirers to visit the home and look around first before they make any final decisions.
