Meet The Manager
I have a passion to support each individual to ensure they are happy and cared for, and to see the people we support happy is one of the reasons I love my job.
I really enjoy the interactions with the people we support and the fact that even the smallest of actions we take can have a positive influence.
I believe that we are here to enable the individuals at Apperley House to live the best life possible with no worries over health, medication, nutrition or support because it is all in place and provided by staff who know them well.
I believe we should look after all aspects of an individuals life and value family input here, I see Apperley House as the individuals home, not our workplace.
