Michelle Griffiths

Ynystawe Lodge Manager

I started my career in care in 1999 after leaving college. I began my career as a nursery nurse, then progressed into adult learning disabilities services and have done this for the past 18 years.

I started within care as a support worker, and over the years I’ve developed and progressed to managerial level.

I have recently started with M and D Care as a Registered Manager, and will be working within one of their new Services in the next coming months.
I have attained various skills and attributes throughout my career, which includes completing a QCF Level 5. Additionally, I have learnt that every person is unique and disabilities vary. Using person centred approaches has enabled me to treat the people we support as individuals.

As I am new to the organisation, I feel that I can bring my experiences and values to M&D, but also, learn from the M&D. Although I have only been here a short while, I have already acknowledged that M&D base their values equally to myself when supporting people with a learning disability. From my first day of employment, I have been made to feel welcomed and valued every day. As M&D are a family business, and like myself, I am very family orientated and want the best outcomes for all the people I will be supporting, together with fellow colleagues.

It is a very exciting time to come on board with M&D care as they are progressing into various settings to meet the health and social needs of people with a learning disability, autism and mental health.

I personally feel that M&D will continue to support me and develop my skills and attributes during their future growth.
