Hey I’m Pauline. I’m 42 years old and I live with my partner and son. I’ve worked in care for the last 17 years, working and managing services with dementia, mental health and learning difficulties.

    I came to work for Ashdown Care in 2006 as the Home Manager. I am responsible for the day  to day organisation and effective running of the services. My aim is to provide a warm, homely environment for the people who use the services based on their individual needs. I would also like to encourage them to develop their social competence and independence. I have an NVQ level 2, 3 in health and social care; level 4 in care and I have also completed my Registered Managers Award. I have completed all other training that is relevant to my position. I am also the trainer for the company in Non-Abusive Psychological & Physical Interventions.

    I really enjoy going running with my partner and I run as part of a group at the stadium; I love to travel the world visiting different areas. I love visiting family and friends and going out for meals; I have a dog and cat, my dog is 4 years old and I love taking her out for walks, I also love to walk my dog at the caravan in the countryside where we often go at weekends.
