Dorota SerafinDeputy Clinical Manager
Dorota is the Deputy Clinical Manager at Royal Alfred, having joined as a Care Assistant in 2008.
She trained as a nurse in Poland from 1992 to 2005, before moving to the UK where she started to work in a care home. Dorota worked for four months as a carer and then started work as a Staff Nurse in Belvedere House.
Supported by the Home Manager, Anne Kasey, Dorota was able to undertake and pass her Level 5 exams in Leadership and Management.
In 2012 she became one of two sisters and worked exclusively in the dementia unit. The following year the Society advertised for a Deputy Clinical Manager which Dorota applied for internally and was successful.
Dorota is an asset to the team and a joy to be around for both residents and staff. She also enjoys fundraising, leading teams from Royal Alfred on expeditions and challenges for various seafaring charities.
Her commitment to caring for former mariners and their dependants was recognised at the Surrey Care Association Awards, where she won the award of Frontline Leader of the Year in 2016.Back to Team
