A devoted member of an Oldbury care home has just been appointed as its new registered home manager after 10 years of outstanding service.
Kam Kaur, after being an integral part of the Newbury Manor Care Home team for many years, has recently taken on the role of registered manager at the home located on Newbury Lane in Oldbury.
Kam has worked at Newbury Manor for a decade, initially joining as a care assistant in 2013. Captivated by the warm and welcoming environment, Kam quickly became a valued member of the team and was soon promoted to senior carer. In this role, she ensured the safety and well-being of residents while maintaining high standards of care.
Recognising Kam’s potential, Diane, the registered home manager at the time, encouraged her to pursue a nursing assistant role and supported her in gaining confidence and knowledge. They formed a close professional bond and became great friends. Under Diane’s guidance, Kam achieved her Level 5 qualification in health and social care, surpassing her own expectations and expanding her skills.
Reflecting on her remarkable journey, Kam Kaur said, “Being part of the Newbury Manor family has been an incredible experience. This care home is like my baby, and I am fiercely protective of it. I spend more time here than at home because I genuinely care about the well-being of our residents and want to ensure they have a loving and nurturing environment.”
While Kam’s responsibilities now extend far beyond providing one-on-one care, she remains dedicated to ensuring meaningful interactions with residents, engaging in activities, and forming personal connections with each individual and their families.
Kam added: “My vision for Newbury Manor is to build upon the wonderful foundation laid by Diane and maintain the essence of a true family home, where residents feel a sense of warmth, friendliness, and belonging. We have an exceptional team of staff, many of whom have been here for a long time, and their dedication and support for each other and our residents contribute to the special atmosphere we have here.”
