Director / Nominated individual
Beulah Lodge has been our family owned business for over 30 years. Beulah Lodge was always part of my life growing up with my grandparents living in the home and where I would visit weekly. Before joining the management team, I worked in the legal industry for 10 years, in the City and Tunbridge Wells area. In 2007 I became Operations Manager and I subsequently completed a Leadership and Management in Care qualification. In 2011 I was appointed as the Registered Manager already being a Director of the business.
The Home and our residents are my passion and I take great pleasure in seeing our residents settle into the home and watching them flourish with all that we can offer. My ethos is that the residents are at the heart of everything we do and this is achieved through continuous reinvestment of the home and its people. I believe that quality is everyone’s responsibility. Our aim is for Beulah Lodge to be the best care home in our region putting people and their care first. I look forward to continuing to provide a high quality service together with our dedicated team of staff.
I was appointed as Manager in February 2017 and I am glad to be part of a well established, family run Home. In 2011 I completed my NVQ 4 in Health and Social Care, having worked in the industry for over 15 years. I have worked in both residential and nursing homes, specialising in various areas including dementia care.
I believe in person centred care and I’m passionate about making a difference, providing care and support that puts people first. It has always been my aim to deliver the highest standard of care and to ensure a high quality of life filled with dignity and respect.
I am 32 years old, and I have worked in care since I was 18 years old. I completed my NVQ 2 and NVQ 3 in health and social care by 2011. I have also completed a level two leadership course. I have recently completed a falls awareness course and I am due to start a level 3 in leadership and management.
I started as a care worker and then worked my way up to being senior where I was leading a team of care staff and making sure the home was safe and everyone’s needs were taken care of.
I was a senior for several years until I was promoted to a lead senior. In this role, I was in charge of all the seniors and the care staff. I made sure that senior’s responsibilities were carried and I supported the management team.
My role was to completed staff supervisions and making sure care plans were updated, helping new residents settle in, medication was signed in and audits were completed.
I have worked in many different fields including care homes, nursing homes, adults with learning disabilities and a mental health hospital on a low secure and rehab ward for 5 years.
I felt I was ready to step into management and wanted to become a deputy manager. Beulah lodge have given me this opportunity and I am very grateful and really enjoying my role. I have been at Beula since early December, and I hope to be here for many years to come.
