SIMONE RITCHIE, Deputy Manager

I commenced employment at Cherry Holt in December 2017 as the very first Deputy Manager, a role I am very passionate about.

Prior to working here, I started my journey in Healthcare in August 2006, after my 3rd child. After 2 weeks of working as a carer in the Community, I realised this was my calling in life. 2 years later I became a senior carer, working in a Care Home. After completing my NVQ Level 2 & 3, I applied to work as a Healthcare Worker for Nottinghamshire Healthcare, for the Twilight District Nursing Service. Whilst working withing the NHS, I gained experience by working in the Rapid Response Team, swiftly being promoted as part of the Care Home training pilot to reduce pressure ulcers, as a Assistant Practitioner.

I co wrote React To Red/Moisture within the 6 years of being part of the team, and gained an Award of the Unsung Hero for Clinical setting in 2016.

I was approached in 2017 after I had gained my Foundation Degree to join the Cherry Holt team. It was a difficult decision to make initially, due to the success of my Care Home work, however this role has taught me so much, and what a true family feeling it is to work at Cherry Holt.

I look forward to seeing the home grow from strength to strength under Knights Care.


Caring for you, Caring about you.
