Diane Jones RMN has over 24 years experience in Nursing and Caring for others. Trained at Whitecroft Mental Health Hospital on the Isle of Wight, Diane has worked with a number of Care Homes, ESMI Units (Elderly Severely Mentally ill) and in private home care, in addition to bringing up a family of four children.
Although Diane has technical and management skills, it is her acute understanding and empathy to people’s emotional and social needs that motivates her to give the best possible care and support.
The name Lillyfields is significant to Diane in that it is based on her own mother’s name Lilian, who Diane helped nurse at home throughout her terminal illness.
Kim was the first “Care Assistant” we employed and as the company grew she grew with it. Kim first completed her NVQ2 in Social Care and was promoted to Senior Carer Assistant where she helped the management team with Care Reviews and Staff spot checks. She continued gaining experience and eventually achieved her NVQ3 in Social Care and has undertaken many Dementia training courses as well, all the while working as a Full-Time Senior Carer. Friendly and approachable Kim was a natural choice for the job of Care Support Manager and continues growing within that role.
Kim is also the Dementia Champion for the whole company due to her knowledge and training on the subject.
