We are delighted to welcome Cemlyn Wyke to Highcliffe as one of Kingsley’s rising young stars.
Cemlyn, 28, says he was really born to work in care as his father, mother and step-mother are all nurses, and he grew up visiting the care and nursing homes they all worked at and managed.
Since arriving at Highcliffe he has been a tremendous support to our home manager Tracey who has taken on extra responsibility as Kingsley’s operations manager in Dorset.
Cemlyn said: “I have worked in care homes since I left school at 17. I started as a kitchen assistant in a Ferndown care home run by my step-mother and became a carer three months later because of my friendly nature. After six months in the role of carer I was made a senior carer.
“I moved on to become a care coordinator at another care service in Ferndown with an outstanding CQC rating and joined the team at Branksome Heights in Bournemouth at the time it was taken over by Kingsley.”
Cemlyn’s passion is compliance – making sure every aspect of a care home is operating safely and effectively in the best interests of our residents – and his role involves carrying out audits, reviewing care plans and implementing action plans at Kingsley’s other Dorset homes as well as Highcliffe.
He said: “I have a very good role model in Tracey and I am fortunate to have joined a home that has been very well run for many years”
