Sam Warren, Home Manager Glebe Care Centre April 2019

I started my career in care in 1999 as a care assistant in Hollywell Hospital, Antrim working across older peoples mental health units, Adult Acute Admissions and Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICU).

In 2002 I travelled to London to complete my Registered Mental Health Nurse training.  Following completion in 2005, my first role as a qualified nurse was in a busy 15 bed Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and later was promoted to Charge Nurse. During this time, I achieved Level 2 Prevention and Management of violence and Aggression Tutor status (PMVA) and General Services A grade Tutor status. Delivering all aspects of management of violence and aggression training, NICE guidelines, Rapid Tranquilisation, De-Escalation and Suicide Prevention Training to staff across the Trust.

In 2010, I worked as Lead Nurse in Clinical Governance within Berkshire Healthcare Trust, before being seconded in 2012 as Clinical Lead to assist in implementing the Trusts new Electronic Patient Record System. From this, I transferred onto leading an Adult Acute Admission Unit on the island of Jersey. Having moved back to England in 2013, I was responsible for commissioning services in Dorset, caring for and supporting individuals living with Dementia whom were at risk of hospital admission. Due to the success of the team they were shortlisted in the HSJ awards in 2015.

Since then, I worked as Home Manager in the Independent sector in a variety of settings such as Learning Disability, Acquired Brain Injury and Frail Elderly and Dementia Care. I have drive and ambition to deliver services to enrich people lives and support them achieve what they and others may never have thought possible.

Testimonials
We can’t thank the staff at Glebe Care Centre enough for looking after our father during the last years of his life. A keen gardener, he loved spending time in the beautiful gardens and he was always kept busy with games, activities and special days out.
I looked at lots of different care homes for my mum but it was only when I visited Glebe Care Centre that I thought it was the right fit. The staff, the homely atmosphere, the gardens and activities were just what we were looking for – and best of all my mum loves her new home.
