Customer Relationship Manager

I joined Ivy Court in 2022 as Customer Relationship Manager.

During the pandemic, to help out I trained as a Caregiver at Home Instead and worked in the community supporting older people to live independently in their own homes.

I also ran a number of age and dementia friendly community groups - Love to Move (chair based exercise) and Sporting Memories.

Ivy Court is a stunning home with fantastic facilities and staff, opening in May 2022. I just love getting to know our Residents and finding out more about their lives.

If you would like to come and take a tour of the home please do not hesitate to get in touch.
