Senior Health Care Assistant
It is important to me that our residents feel safe and comfortable living at Solent Grange. I like working alongside a team who are committed to delivering a quality life for our residents. My role gives me the opportunity to spend time with our residents and get to know them which I find most rewarding, especially when I have one to one time with them. In my free time away from work I like to relax with my family and enjoy knitting and studying.

I love my role as a care assistant. It gives me the opportunity to get to know our residents and their families and I get great satisfaction from knowing that I am making a difference to their lives. Being a carer is a new experience for me and looking after people and seeing them happy and comfortable at Solent Grange is very rewarding. Our home has a lovely atmosphere and so coming to work is something I look forward too, which I think is important. When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my family.

In my role I work hard to encourage independence as I feel it gives residents and staff a sense of well-being. Having worked at Solent Grange for over 3 years, what is most important to me is that we feel like a family and are there for each other. I love welcoming new residents to the home and introducing them to the existing residents and staff, so from day one they feel at home. I enjoy getting to know the residents’ families too as they share lots of useful information that helps us get to really know our residents. When I am not at work, I love walking my dog – a little Frenchie. I also enjoy photography, gardening and travelling abroad.
I enjoy being the first face people see when they visit Solent Grange, I am always busy as I meet and greet visitors to the home and also answer telephone calls from families and friends to ensure they can communicate with their loved ones. I am always available for our residents for a chat or to answer their questions. It is always nice passing on messages or taking visitors to see their loved ones as they are always so happy when spending time with the people they most care about. Outside of work I keep busy, but when I have the time, I like to relax with my two sons, go to the cinema or walk my gorgeous bulldog.
I assist with the running of the kitchen ensuring our residents have delicious and nutritious meals prepared for them each day. I particularly enjoy the feedback and ideas I receive from the residents as it enables us to create meals they like to eat. I get satisfaction from knowing our residents find the food we serve tasty. When I am not working in my free time I enjoy going for walks and Deejaying.
