Monica has worked in the healthcare arena for over 35 years, predominantly specialising in dementia and palliative care. She has been Acorn Court’s Registered Home Manager since 2009, having overseen the home’s extension and refurbishment in 2019.
Monica’s passion is to create a home from home for all her residents, within a warm and friendly environment. She has developed an exceptionally dedicated team that has been cherry picked to form the stable family unit at the heart of Acorn Court.
Since Joining the Carebase family, Monica has collected two National Awards, The Caring Times Dementia Care Manager of the Year and The Great British Care Awards ‘Putting People First’ award, in addition to Surrey Care’s ‘Manager of the Year’, the Great British Care Awards South East ‘Registered Manager’ and ‘Putting People First’ awards at various intervals from 2010 onwards.
Monica’s beloved teacup chihuahua Missy is a firm fixture at Acorn Court, often found cosying up with residents and visitors alike.
Monica’s natural affinity to care for others runs in the family, having inspired both her children, Ami and Colm, to also pursue successful careers within the Care Sector. In fact, Ami heads up the Lifestyles Team at Acorn Court.
When she’s not at Acorn Court, Monica loves spending time with her four grandchildren, Elsie, Sophia, Florence and Teddy. She unwinds by watching cooking programmes, although she confesses, she can’t cook!
Monica says “I lead by example and ensure that there are good communication links throughout all aspects of the home, ensuring team members can perform to their best ability, adopting professionalism, passion and pride as their key objectives in the work place. Everyone feels part of our big family. I love the fact that we can make a difference to the lives of the people here at Acorn Court, not just for our residents, but their families and friends as well”
