Below is an overview of the people within Abbey Nursing & Care’s team:
Managing Director / Registered Manager
My background is nursing, having qualified as a registered nurse & midwife. I started Abbey Nursing & Care in February 2000 and since then I have achieved my NVQ Level 4 Managers Award and my teaching qualification. I am really passionate about Abbey Nursing & Care delivering the very best person centred care to care service users. I look forward to the year ahead and the challenges it will bring.
I joined Abbey Nursing & Care in January 2011 as a community support worker. Since joining I have completed my NVQ Level 3 in Health & Social Care. I took over as Care Manager in October 2017 and since joining Abbey Nursing & Care I have completed Level 2 courses in End of Life Care, Food & Nutrition and Principles of Care Planning.
Community Support Worker
I joined Abbey Nursing & Care in December 2013. It was the best decision I made. I previously have worked in the NHS in a clerical role. When I joined I was given full support from Karen and the team. What I like about the job is being able to make a difference to someone’s life, even the little things as I might be the only person they see that day. I have completed training in Level 2 Dementia Awareness.
