Sonia Da Silva
I began my career as a nurse before moving into management. I try to make every resident smile each day and appreciate the smiles in return. I love having day to day contact with the residents, as I am a nurse at heart!
Head Nurse/Deputy Manager
With over 10 years of nursing experience it is great to work with such a friendly team to deliver the highest standards of care for all our residents.
I love showing people around the home and arranging various visits for the residents. As the ‘face of the home’ my role is very important and knowing that I can help them through their care home journey makes me happy.
Meet the Manager
Sonia is our Home Manager at Abbeycrest Nursing Home, here’s a little bit more about the home in her own words:
“As a registered nurse I began my career with at Abbeycrest in 2012. At Abbeycrest caring for our residents is our main focus they are the reason we are here, we strive to ensure they feel happy and well looked after. When our residents join us, we work with them to maintain the involvement they had in the local community so that they feel connected to their lives outside the home and fulfilled.
Each of our residents is unique and we treat them as such, creating care plans that suit their individual preferences whilst ensuring safety, comfort and the highest levels of care. Families are involved in our care planning, we share experiences and learn from each other.
We look after our residents as if they are our own family and build strong relationships, I try to put a smile on their face each day and they give me a smile in return.”
