Very friendly staff who always help within 5 mins of being asked or called upon. The room my father has is to a good standard, and when we asked to get my father moved, he was within a week.

Our first experience of a care home - mother straight from hospital with her leg in a cast. All very scary and painful. The staff were so kind to her, and the nursing care excellent. That was 1810/2013. My mother has settled but of course would rather be at home. I visit daily and all the staff know me well. Lovely and always caring.

My mother has been a resident at the above home since 2013. I am very pleased with the care she has received while staying there. It is set in lovely grounds which she is able to enjoy during the warmer months. The staff there are friendly and professional and always make you feel welcome when visiting. There are very good facilities there, such as hairdressing. They have regular activities to pass the day, such as games, music and shows. There are different rooms that my mother can sit in depending on what mood she is in (e.g a quiet room, tv room, activity room) All in all and after initially visiting several homes. I am very pleased that we chose High Habberley House and my mother is very happy there.

Staff Profiles

Sara

Sara Morrisey

Job Title: General Manager

Description:

Hi and welcome to High Habberley House! I started my career in care as most people do - on the bottom rung of the ladder as a Care Assistant. It wasn't long however before I realised providing care services to vulnerable people was my passion and I soon started to understand where my career was headed. I worked my way up through various positions in the care industry and pursued a nursing qualification whilst doing this.

In 2000, I obtained my Learning Disabilities Nursing Qualification (RNLD). I also hold a teaching qualification.

I have managed care homes in various settings for a number of years now and bring with me a true passion for ensuring the highest quality care delivery through a person centred approach. My team will be supported to perform their roles each day with a programme of continuous training and development. For those who wish to progress, the Barchester Business School is available to pursue their chosen qualifications. I am also a keen beleiver in an open door policy, ensuring that my team understand they can approach me at any time should they need to chat about anything at all.

This applies to the residents and the families of our residents also. I encourage a healthy environment where feedback and open discussions are paramount in enabling us to continually improve the already high standards we aim to attain.

Outside of work my time is occupied by my family and my 4 year old West Highland Terrier called Beau... he will become a regular visitor to the home also!

Do feel free to browse our web pages but there is no better way to get to know more about us, than to pop in for a coffee and a chat. A warm welcome will always await you at High Habberley House and I look forward to meeting you very soon!
