I have worked in social care for over 25 years, starting as a kitchen assistant. I soon realised how much I wanted to go into care, and have never looked back. I have worked in a vast range of care settings, as well as working on the wards at the James Paget University Hospital, as a health care assistant and as a Macmillan carer with the Palliative care team. I have been manager at St Augustine’s Place for the past 12 years, thoroughly enjoying my role and the environment that I work in. I am passionate about using my experience and skills in care to support my team in making a real difference to the lives of the people living here.

Care home rating
As a family we are 100% happy with St Augustine’s Place. Mum moved in very recently and we could not be happier. It is alike to a family-run hotel. Every single member of staff we have dealt with has been amazing, too many to name. Several members of staff, in particular, all go that little bit extra.
