A DEDICATED member of staff at an Oldbury care home has just been appointed as its new manager after 10 years of 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 on Newbury Lane.

Kam has worked at Newbury Manor for a decade, joining as a care assistant in 2013.

Kam quickly became a valued member of the team and was soon promoted to senior carer.

Recognising Kam's potential she was encouraged to pursue a nursing assistant role and was supported in gaining confidence and knowledge.

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.”
