As Registered Home Manager at Sedgley Court care home, Kim Dean will lead the team to provide the very best person-centred care to residents.
With over 25 years of care sector experience, Kim has a wealth of knowledge in the care industry, having worked in mental health, domiciliary, residential and nursing care settings. Kim’s passion to improve the quality of life for her residents helped her to advance into senior management roles.
Kim said, ‘I am so excited to join the Ideal Carehomes team and I can’t wait to open the doors to Sedgley Court and welcome our first residents in November. No two days in care are ever the same and I still hold the same passion for my job 25 years later as I did on my first day. I feel privileged to have worked with some of the most fantastic residents throughout my career and I cannot wait to bring my experience to Sedgley Court and begin making new and exciting memories with my team and residents’.
‘The recruitment process is well underway, and we have our assessment days coming up with some fantastic candidates! What with our stunning building, I know that all the pieces are in place to create a wonderful home for our residents. My vision is to create a care home environment that is the heart of the local community – where everybody is welcomed with open arms and embraced for who they are’.
Kim is committed to delivering person-centred care and supporting residents to remain independent.  Kim and her team will take their time to get to know each resident, and their likes and dislikes to create a completely personalised care plan which is tailored to their individual needs.  Once the homes final stages of construction are complete, the team can begin to implement Ideal Carehomes unique initiatives such as ‘Ideal Fresh Living’ which keeps staff at the forefront of infection control policies.
Ideal Carehomes Director, Stacey Linn, said: ‘We are so pleased to be opening our first luxury care home in Dudley and I am very happy to welcome Kim to the Ideal Carehomes team. She is a kind, caring and compassionate manager which is reflected in her work and she shares our ethos of putting residents at the heart of everything that happens in the home.   I know Sedgley Court will be in very capable hands’.
