Manager's Letter

Hello, my name is Andreea Buciuman and I am the Home Manager of Highfield Nursing Home in Ryde on the beautiful Isle of Wight.

 

I moved to the Isle of Wight from Romania in December 2015 and realised that home is a feeling, not just a place where you were born, and I finally found my forever home on this amazing island. I started working at Highfield as a Care Assistant and Highfield soon became my second family.  A few months after starting at Highfield, I achieved my registration with NMC and became a Registered Nurse. Eight months on, I was promoted to a Clinical Team Leader and in the meantime achieved a Level 5 Qualification in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care. In May 2018, I became the Deputy Manager. With the support of the staff team, residents and Hartford Care, I was honoured to be promoted to the position of Home Manager in October 2019.

 

Before training as a Registered Nurse, I studied landscape architecture and interior and exterior design is something I am still very passionate about. In the past few years, together with my partner, we’ve managed to fully refurbish our own home and are keen to start a new venture together with our 3 Bulldogs and our cat! My role at Highfield is to bring everyone together, make sure we achieve the highest standards possible and that everyone who lives and works with us are happy, consider themselves part of a family and feel Highfield is a home away from home.  The 7 H’s of Highfield are: Happy, Honest, Humorous, Hard-working, Humane, Heartfelt and Hartford Care.

 

I would like residents, family carers and staff to feel they belong and are listened to, where they are part of our homely community where they feel valued, happy and are all living life to the fullest! Part of this is to ensure we have fun and enjoy our lives every day. I believe people are just as happy as they make up their minds to be, and here at Highfield we decide to be jolly all the time.  I am really proud of the care we provide at Highfield and the bonds we have created with our residents, staff, families, community and multidisciplinary teams. We do more than just care for people, we share our lives with them and this is what makes us more than just a nursing home.

 

I look forward to welcoming you to Highfield soon!

 

Kind Regards,

 

Andreea
