As Home Manager of Hillside, I lead a professional care team in delivering the highest standards of residential care for up to 44 residents.
I have over 23 years of experience across Adult Mental Health, Elderly Mental Health and Adult Social Care services, spending the last 14 years in management roles. I hold SVQ’s in Adult Health and Social Care Levels 3 & 4 and QCF Level 5.
As a people person, caring has always been a passion of mine. This is the aspect that makes my job worthwhile, making a positive impact on our residents and their families lives no matter how big or small, in what has become their home and supporting them to continue a good quality of life.
I continuously work to improve and maintain the care standards at Hillside and manage our sister home Mellish House which is located next door. Being so close means, we can offer a full care pathway for residents as their needs change with peace of mind.
Away from work, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and dog. I also love music and socialising with friends.

Our commitment to care
Hillside offers a full range of residential care support, including trial stays, short stay and convalescent care, as well as long-term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms.
Our professional Care Team work closely with residents to ensure everyone who wishes to can play an active role in the day to day activities at the home. We have a dedicated Activities Coordinator who ensures there is a broad range of events for residents to participate in – from keep-fit classes to creative activities.
Dementia care pathway
At Hillside we also benefit from a close working relationship with our sister home, Mellish House, located next door. Mellish House provides specialist residential support for people living with dementia.
Our two homes provide a continuous care pathway offering elderly residents, their families and loved ones, the peace of mind afforded by knowing that changing care needs can be catered for at a single location.
We operate an open visiting policy at Hillside, so residents and loved ones may visit at the times that are convenient for them.
As the Home Manager at Hillside, I ensure that every member of our Care Team receives the ongoing training they need to do their jobs. This enables our Team to build on the excellent reputation we have earned for high quality care provision.
Our home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission, with both ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.
