Having lived most of my life surrounded by beautiful lush greenery in various parts of North Yorkshire, I bid a fond farewell to Harrogate and moved to the blue skies, warm sands and stunning sunshine coast of the Algarve.
After many years’ experience in the community sector caring for babies, children and young adults, taking sole responsibility for their day to day life, care and safety as well as household and financial management. I proceeded onto also owning and running a successful home care recruitment company in the UK, as a 50% business partner with a good friend for over a decade.
This involved working alongside and supporting multiple agencies including social services to ensure the continued monitoring and safeguarding of some of the most vulnerable people in our society. This combination of direct community and office based skills and knowledge ensured a naturally easy transition into the senior care sector.
I believe that love, understanding and integrity are fundamental to life and happiness, that it should be everybody’s responsibility to stand up for truth and helping to meet the needs and protect those that need our help is one of the most rewarding things we could ever do.
Guilty pleasure: Having the beach all to myself…..and pretty much anything sweet and sugary….unless it contains coffee; in which case its completely ruined!
