Deputy Manager

“From the moment I first came for an interview at Sway Place, I had a good feeling about the home. I loved the teamwork I could see, and the progression opportunities looked great. I joined the team in 2019, but I’ve worked in the care industry for 14 years. The best part of each day is seeing the residents – they’re what I’m here or!
