Ops. Support Manager,
Care South at Home
I came into care during my 40’s, starting at Talbot View as a night care assistant. After five years in residential care, I joined our Care at Home service based in Bournemouth. I have progressed through roles including supervisor, co-ordinator and registered manager. I am now operations support manager, providing guidance and advice to all our Care at Home offices.
