Dementia Care Manager
When I was at school my ambition was always to be a nurse for as long as I can remember.
Didn’t like school much so when I was 15 I left school and was lucky to be employed as a cadet nurse. I was excited and spent 3 years in that position, after which I trained to become a nurse for those with special needs and years later trained as a general nurse.
Deviated once after my son was born and I moved back up north. I was “Matron” in charge of what seemed like hundreds of babies and small children in Pontins Holiday camp. Quite an experience.
I have worked in a care home setting for the past 27 years!
Many years have passed since my time as a cadet nurse, but I still have the same passion for caring for people.
I have a son still living at home, and a daughter and one beautiful grandson who now live in Spain so enjoy trips to the sun.
