I wanted to work for Care UK because I knew a number of people who worked for the organisation, and who were happy here. I joined in 2009. Before that, I was an engineer.
What I like is being able to use my practical skills in a setting where I can properly make a difference to an older person’s life. I like to encourage residents to help me and get involved in tasks. Some people enjoy being useful, so it makes them happy, and it’s all part of Care UK’s ethos.
A large home like this can only function when everyone’s pulling together to achieve the same thing. The great teamwork that you see at Mountbatten Grange is what makes the home such a success.
