Serena Allan, Manager, Braeside House

Image of Serena Allen, Head of Care at Braeside HouseSerena started working for Royal Blind as a Night Sister 14 years ago and worked her way up to be Head of Care, then Deputy Manager and is now the Manager of Braeside House care home.

Serena's qualifications include a Post Graduate Certifiate in Palliative Care. 

She said: "By using the Senses Framework as a model of care we are able to better appreciate things from the various perspectives of residents, their family, carers or close contacts, and staff.

"Working closely with staff and residents on a day to day basis means I can constantly monitor and evaluate standards, and give guidance and support to staff in achieving the individualised, person-centred care which maintains identities.

"I feel passionately about making care for older people right, and know that all of us together can make Braeside House the very best it can possibly be to both live and work in."
