Nestled in beautiful, open countryside, Brendoncare Froxfield is a peaceful place surrounded by nature where nursing and award-winning dementia care support residents to live contented lives.
I am a registered nurse who trained at the medical academy in Bydgoszcz in Poland. On completion of my training, I worked on a hospital ward then in a doctors’ surgery before returning to the hospital to work on the neurological ward. I moved to the UK in 2007 and joined the care team at a nursing home then worked as a support work for people with learning disabilities. I started working as a nurse in a nursing home in 2010. In 2012, I joined Brendoncare Froxfield as a registered nurse, later becoming its Deputy Manager then its Registered Manager in 2019.
