Job Title: Home Manager

Joined: 2011


I am a qualified nurse with over 34 years experience and believe there is no better job than delivering unique person centred care and I am privileged to manage a wonderful team who are advocates for each person they care for in our home.

In my career, I have also worked as a Consultant for NICE and won The Patient Safety Hydration Best Practice Award in 2008, Best Trainer Award (for my company) and have initiated ground breaking research which changed how people were cared for in Residential and Nursing Homes in the UK.

Kentford Manor is a very special place and one which I am proud to manage, we are a family here and each person is treated as an individual, respecting their opinions, ideas and comments.

I completed a degree 6 years ago and have found the job I really want to be in, I look forward to work each day. My job is very diverse and working in a Nursing Home has completely changed my outlook on life and I have a much better understanding of the needs of the elderly in our care.

I am passionate about my job and find it challenging but 100% fulfilling. The residents and relatives have daily contact with me and this is the best part of my job. The way the staff care for dementia residents is inspiring and I cannot praise them enough, we are a team at all times and I am proud to work at Kentford Manor

Job Title: Activities and Events Coordinator

Joined: 2011


I have worked at Kentford Manor for two and a half years now as the Activity Coordinator. My job is very diverse as each of the residents are unique individuals and need a separate activity plan. The fun is actually achieving this and seeing the residents come out of themselves, laugh, have fun and make new friendships to begin a new stage in their lives. The job is very rewarding and I love it.
