Meet the Oxford House Nursing Home Team
Oxford House Nursing Home employs the very best staff. Our Management team lead by example and fully invest their time and effort into supporting all their employees. Here are just a few of our wonderful team:
I started my career in care in June 2007, working as a carer for Oxford House Community Care. I completed my Adult Nursing Diploma training in September 2009 and I joined Oxford House Nursing Home in February 2010 as a registered nurse. I was promoted to deputy manager in 2018 and I have been the registered manager since November 2020.
I decided to become a nurse as I love helping people & receive job satisfaction from my role in helping others.
At Oxford House, we have a great team and we are well supported by the owners. The residents feel like family and I strive to do the very best I can for them.
The whole team is motivated to make Oxford House an outstanding nursing home.
I have worked in care for over 14 years. Previous jobs included office work and wine bar/catering manager. I decided that I needed to work nearer to home and thought that care would be a good job to pursue. I started my career in care in 2007 at Oxford House Community Care as a carer with no experience at all. I progressed into the roles of Senior Carer, Area Supervisor and Office Administrator. Having then worked in children’s mental health for 1 year, I applied for a job as a carer at Oxford House Nursing Home. I soon gained promotions to Supervisor, Medication Lead and now Deputy Manager.
I love my present position and it feels good that I have been able to work my way up through to where I am now. I get great satisfaction ensuring that the residents are safe and that the staff here are happy. It’s not always easy but I wouldn’t want it any other way. There is always something new to learn every day and we have a great team here; its friendly, homely and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
I love swimming, shopping and looking after my Grandson, Cillian, who is a new addition to the family.
I have been working in the care industry for 9 years. I became a nurse because I love caring for other people. I first joined Oxford House Nursing Home in 2013.
I like working here because of the lovely, friendly atmosphere. I also enjoy my job because it gives me a lot of satisfaction in knowing that I help the residents and put a smile on their faces.
I have been working in the care industry for 17 years. I became a carer/nurse because I am a compassionate individual who values and respects the senior citizens of the community. I am committed to my job because I feel that members of our community should receive the very best care. I joined Oxford House in April 2018.
I like working here because I enjoy working with the residents at the home and I also like the positive atmosphere that is sustained and encouraged by the team. I like my job because it is enriching to my own life as the support we provide is very meaningful and significant to the residents.
What motivates me at work is the gracious response and gratitude from the residents for all the support we provide, knowing that what we do will put a smile on their faces and provide plenty of joy. I have built strong, trusting relations with the residents, the residents are comfortable to come to me with any queries and that inspires the responsibility and motivation in me to support the residents.
I have been working in care for 14 years. I became a nurse because I am committed to my job and I like it very much.
I joined Oxford House Nursing Home in 2007. I am motivated by helping others and I enjoy working in a friendly, professional environment.
Oxford House Nursing Home is my second home.
I have been working in the care industry for nearly 2 years. I became an administrator because I enjoy the challenges it brings. I am committed to my job because I feel I can be the support system for the staff. I enjoy working here because of the staff and residents, mostly talking to residents, and making them smile.
In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, and going on long walks.
I have been working for Oxford House Nursing Home for 16 years as a hygiene and laundry assistant. I like working here because the management are very good. My goals at work are to make the home nice and clean for the residents.
I have been a chef at Oxford House Nursing Home since 2020. I have found the job very challenging at times but very rewarding too. My passion for food, alongside working with people and for people, assisting their different needs made me change my career path and I became a chef about 6 years ago. I love my job as I relish seeing our residents enjoying the food. It's very emotional hearing words such as " the best meal ever", "that dish was gorgeous". I love the home too. The team work is outstanding and it is the best place I have ever worked. There is a family atmosphere that helps you feel appreciated. My goals are always high - to provide an outstanding service to our residents and I always look for opportunities to improve my skills and knowledge.
I love politics and in my free time I love gardening, reading books and socialising.
I’ve been working in the Care industry for nearly 2 years as a Maintenance Manager. I am committed to my job because I care about the people I work with, both staff and residents to ensure they are in a safe & comfortable environment. I’m good at problem solving and can put my hand to most things including working under pressure and to deadlines with a positive attitude.
I joined Oxford House Nursing Home in December 2019 and I enjoy working here as it’s a great team & I get to interact with the residents, bringing a smile to their faces. Its very rewarding having the responsibility of maintaining the home and keeping everyone happy. This keeps me motivated because if the home is clean, well maintained and running smoothly we will maintain our excellent reputation.
My personal interests are holidays with my family, golf, darts & fishing.
