Job Title: Home Manager

Joined: 2013

Description: Donna Milne became manager of The Potteries in June 2013. Here she tells us about the favourite part of her working day. "I qualified as a nurse in 1999 and spent several years working at Poole Hospital NHS Trust. After leaving the NHS, I became manager of a private nursing home and really enjoyed my new role. I then went on to manage a small group of care homes before spending some time as a commissioning manager for new build homes. I am always excited by my job and could not imagine working in any other environment. When you work in a care home the residents, their relatives and the team become like a large family. Walking around the home each day and chatting with residents, relatives and colleagues is my favourite part of the day. I learn so much on my rounds and often these little gems of information can help us improve the way we care for and support residents, making a huge difference to their lives. For me, being a care home manager is about providing the quality of care and choice I would expect for my own family. I believe it is important to remember that we are guests in the resident’s home and we should respect that and assist everyone to have a happy and fulfilling life."
