Our Team

At our home, we view residents, staff, and volunteers as being one family.

All staff and volunteers will interact with residents and so, whatever their role, they each receive dementia awareness training. Continual professional development is encouraged, and staff receive regular training. We are also a real living wage employer.

Our dedicated, attentive staff and friendly volunteers provide excellent standards of assistance and support making our home a happy place to live. Many of our volunteers come from Loughborough University, which is right around the corner.

Hello, my name is Sharon. After 25 years of being a mother and housewife, I decided to return to work once my four children had grown up. I began as a laundry assistant before being promoted to Housekeeper, where I oversee domestics and laundry. I strongly believe in promoting dignity and respect for all of our residents, and I’m still here and enjoying my job after 12 years!
