Queen’s Lodge People – Nikki Brunt

When Nikki Brunt was offered the Deputy Manager’s job at Queen’s Lodge, she had one stipulation and that was she wanted to continue providing care for our residents.

Having had Nikki with us for 20 years, that was music to our ears, so she is now combining both roles, providing care ‘on the floor’ and support to our Manager Janine in the office.

Nikki got the bug for care when she was a teenager, and her grandfather came to live with her parents following the death of his wife.

She said: “We were all around to help him as a family so that’s what got me thinking that a career in care was for me.”

Aged 19, Nikki joined us at Queen’s Lodge and was a Senior Carer for the last ten years. Now aged 39, she is thoroughly deserving of her promotion.

She says: “When I was offered the Deputy Manager’s role, I was very passionate in wanting to also be able to continue providing care, so now I have the best of both worlds and I couldn’t be happier.

“Queen’s Lodge is a lovely home with amazing residents and staff. Everyone is very friendly; we work as a team and it feels just like being part of a big family.”

Nikki admits the last 12 months have been difficult as everyone had to adjust due to Covid-19.

She adds: “It was hard work, but we all pulled together to ensure the residents were as safe as possible and, touch wood, we are now over the worst.”

When Nikki is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her partner and their two children and going to the gym. She is also an avid watched of Netflix and enjoys binge watching the latest shows.

She jokes: “I think I have watched 90% of everything that is on Netflix so I can always recommend a good show!”
