Business Description

I have joined BOB to help to build the awareness of our care home and retirement village as well as to try and alter the perception of care in general. Our product, quality levels and excellence of care are second to none and I feel proud to work for Cinnamon. I would like to connect with the local community to find out how we can beome an integral part of the landscape in and around Knowle and the first place people think of when it comes to care.

I have worked for the Cinnamon Care Collection for the past 4.5 years and have been a part of an amazing team at Cedar Mews in Leicester. I am really excited to be at Eastcote Park now and feel that my experience will be beneficial to the residents and families I meet here.  Empathy, understanding and a real world experience of the issues facing families and their loved ones are a few of the things I bring to the team and along with colleagues, we can help make the transition into care as stress free as possible. I love nothing more than returning family members to being family members rather than carers.

For the past 4.5 years I have been working as a Home Admissions Advisor (same job different title!) at Cedar Mews Care Home in Leicester – part of the Cinnamon Care Collection – where I developed an understanding about what makes a good care home and I know that Eastcote will be as well. I helped care for my Mother in Law who developed young onset dementia in her early 50’s so I truly understand the journey families are on.
