A Registered Nurse for over 2 years, I qualified as a Registered Nurse at Medway Maritime Hospital in Chatham. I started my career in the NHS in, orthopaedics moving on to Theatres and recovery as a recovery Nurse.

In March 2020, I transitioned back into Care Homes as a registered nurse as I have a passion for Dementia care and end of life care, leading into a clinical lead role at Maidstone Care Centre and now undertaking a registered manager role within RCH for Withens Nursing Home

Activities Are So Important

Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Withens Nursing Home is a key focus for our dedicated team.

By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.

No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to keeping fit with chair-based exercises, there are floor games such as skittles and balloon tennis, quizzes, movie afternoons, and art therapy. We also take great pleasure in welcoming entertainers and groups to our home.

Our residents also love relaxing with hand and foot massages and, for those individuals who are nursed in bed, having one-to-one activities with our team. We also look forward to getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year — complete with themed menus and decorations!
