Valerie Jarvis has been the manager of Isis House since 2012. She has over 33 years’ experience in the Care Home setting, originally with Oxfordshire County Council and then transferring to The Orders of St John Care Trust in December 2001. Valerie has progressed her way up from a Care Assistant to Manager. Valerie has been a Registered Manager since 1993 and has managed homes from 34 residents’ to being a dual manager, with a combined total of 100 residents.
