Meet Penhurst Garden’s new Home Manager, Theresa Whitford.
Theresa has been working in the care sector since 1987, where she began as a carer before planning to start college. She enjoyed the role so much that she decided against going to going to college to pursue a career where she felt she would be making a difference to people’s lives.
Since making that decision, Theresa has worked hard to progress her career in care and has worked across most disciplines in care home settings to eventually become a Home Manager in 2001.
Theresa brings with her a wealth of experience and has completed numerous courses and qualifications enhancing her knowledge and skills. She told us, ‘I am proud to be part of such a fantastic team here at Penhurst Gardens. I have a real passion for care and the elderly and I want to ensure our residents experience the very best in professional and empathetic care in our beautiful surroundings’.
