Care Home Manager
Danielle, 35, is a care home manager from Gorleston-on-Sea near Great Yarmouth. Dedicating half her life to social care, the mum-of-two was nominated by her colleagues from Laurel Lodge residential home in Norwich and her former manager from Park House in Great Yarmouth.
Despite being only 12 weeks into the newly promoted role of manager when the pandemic hit, Danielle and her team have kept the care home COVID-free, and she has focused on keeping her staff and residents happy and healthy.
Making this difficult time a little easier to bear for the 30 residents and their families, Danielle organised daily Zoom chats between loved ones and ensured the weekly schedule of activities included something for everyone, from cooking or dancing to a music session. A former majorette, she put on a baton twirl show for residents and hand-delivered them all biscuits and a rose on Valentine’s Day.
