Michelle has worked at Ringstead since 2001 as a care worker all the way up to Deputy Manager, where she supported Denise Lyford for 9 years before being made Manager at 39 Denford Rd at the beginning of 2016. Michelle has already made her mark on the home, with improvements to the back flats lounge already completed, creating a beautiful living space for those who live there to relax in.
"I have always been impressed by Avens' friendly and open ethos. I have received total support from the company over the years. Firstly being employed as a support worker, team leader, head of care and deputy manager, and now the manager. Every role has been rewarding which I think is down to the happy atmosphere Avens promotes. Best of all, I feel lucky to be able to support our service users and help them have the best possible quality of life."
"At the end of the day, it's not about us, it's about them and it's about what they want and what makes them happy. That's what makes me happy, is knowing that everyone who lives here is happy to be getting up in the morning because they've got something to look forward to."
