Dementia Care Manager

I have been working in the care industry for about 30 years,
I started working as a carer doing nights in a nursing home to
support my growing family. Once my family had grown I changed
my career path to residential care, it was here that I worked my
way up to become the Home Manager before joining the team
at Ascot Grange as their Dementia Care Manager.
Working in the care sector is a privilege and so rewarding.
The residents have such a rich history and they are always
willing to share their stories with staff.
