Thank you to all at Rectory House for the professionalism, compassion, & total dedication of each & every member of the team for the care given to my father since he moved in last December. I know that Dad can be extremely difficult & I admire the patience shown by all. Rectory House has alleviated the heartache we, his family, felt trying to find a home good enough & within our budget for Dad, & believe me, we visited many homes in our search. The Manger made the transition from a ‘less than satisfactory’ care home to Rectory House easy. Dad soon became more settled & thrived on regular meals & proper administration of medication. When it comes to care for elderly & needy, there is no ‘one size fits all’. Rectory House really do cater to every character, temperament, & palate. The atmosphere, the facilities, the accommodation & the general ambience of Rectory House is friendly & homely–it could not be more different to all the negative programmes about care homes seen on TV.

As Home Manager of Rectory House, I lead my professional Care Team in delivering the highest standards of residential and nursing care for elderly ladies and gentlemen.
In my professional career, I have developed a wide range of clinical and corporate experience. Having qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1998, I spent eight years working for the NHS before moving into a corporate business development role. This was followed by five years working as a Registered Home Manager before joining Caring Homes.
This diverse experience has equipped me well for my role at Rectory House, where I work hard to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.
I enjoy being able to make a difference to people’s lives, trying to make each day happier than the last.
Away from work I try to keep myself equally busy, fitting my favourite pastimes of skiing, camping and cycling around my ongoing studies for a Masters Degree in Business.

When they suggested she be admitted for palliative care, it was with uncertainty about her future and low expectations...Read more
