Mountfitchet House Care Home, Home Manager

Here’s what Joanna Duke, our Home Manager, has to say about her decision to join Care UK:

“I started my career as a healthcare assistant before training and qualifying as a nurse.

“That was 24 years ago, since then, I’ve worked in the NHS and in the private sector. I’ve worked in many different areas of nursing, from paediatric intensive care to end of life and dementia care, and also in management.

“I joined Care UK because I wanted to bring my skills and experience to benefit an exciting and forward-thinking care organisation. I love the idea, at the heart of Care UK’s ethos, of fulfilling residents’ lives. I think it’s something everyone can understand and get behind. It motivates the entire team, whatever role they do.

Jade Rackham

Customer Relations Manager

“I have always worked in sales and customer service, so the care sector was completely new to me. However, I wanted to work in an environment where I felt I could make a difference to people and to use my skills and experience to help them. It’s been a challenge to learn the different policies and procedures that are necessary, but it’s been good. Having empathy, being a good listener and being determined to do all you can to support families at a stressful time, these are all important skills and attributes needed in this role. One of my favourite parts of the job is helping new residents to settle in, and supporting relatives to feel like part of the Mountfitchet House family.”

Alex Salmon

Lifestyle Coordinator

“When I was studying for my Health and Social Care qualification in college, we needed to find work experience. I chose Mountfitchet House and had such a great experience here, meeting residents and taking part in activities, that I applied to join the team full time once I’d completed my studies. Working in the lifestyle team it’s important to be creative, energetic and caring. Having a good understanding of dementia is also vital here, and it means that we’re better able to plan and approach activities for residents. I’m always determined to make residents smile and I love to spend time with them. Their happiness is my aim. The highlight is always a trip out, to Hatfield Forest, garden centers, farms and pubs for lunch. We’ve also held an ‘I’m a Celebrity’ day plus other big events.”

Gina Graves

Unit Manager

“Coming from a background of working in care, when Mountfitchet House was built in my village in 2014 I thought it would be a great new career challenge and an opportunity to make a difference in the community. My favourite part of my job is that I get to see the resident’s smiling and enjoying life – if they’re happy, I’m happy. To be good in this role you need to have patience, empathy and good people skills! It can be challenging at times but my purpose above all else is to make sure the residents are safe and well in their home.”
