About Jessica Watkins...
I started my journey into care when I was sixteen years old, helping to take care of my grandparents. My passion for care grew and I soon began working for a domiciliary care agency. I found the role so rewarding that this became my full time career, and have since completed levels 2, 3 and 4 in Adult Health & Social Care, as well as The Registered Managers Award.
I have a real enthusiasm for clinical practice, as well as a strong work ethic and excellent communication skills. This passion helps ensure The Anchorage is an efficient and successful care home. I get to know all of our residents on a one to one basis, supporting strong and positive relationships, so that they feel comfortable and safe with myself and the care team; they are a part of the Anchorage family. I love to bring everyone together - residents, relatives, resident's friends, staff and our health partners.
I am committed to supporting our care team and ensuring they are able to achieve their goals and ambitions for the future. I truly believe that everyone within our home is equally integral to achieving outstanding care.
