Specialist Design

The original house was a substantial family home. Following a sympathetic conversion, which took pains to retain attractive original features, the house has been complemented with an attractive purpose built wing offering the very highest standards of accommodation, both in residents’ en-suite bedrooms and in communal areas. In addition to dining and day rooms, a real highlight is the central courtyard and patio area where residents can reflect on times past and look forward to future activities.

Manager's Profile

I am a Nurse by profession and have been working in the care sector for 7 years in many different aspects, from a Health Care Assistant to a Registered Manager.

I lead my compassionate Care Team in delivering the highest level of residential and nursing care for up to 42 elderly residents. I ensure that the home maintains a stimulating and encouraging environment for our residents, whilst supporting all of our colleagues to provide expert quality care. I really enjoy being a Home Manager, caring for people and sharing knowledge with my valued colleagues.

A previous Nursing Home I managed was awarded the 15th best home in London by a carehome.co.uk public survey in 2015. I am immensely proud of this achievement and hope to bring my skills and knowledge to The Pines.

I had been looking for a new professional challenge and many of my contacts have recommended Caring Homes. They have a fantastic reputation with over 21 years’ experience in the industry and their exceptional standards of care really attracted me to the company.

I live in Croydon which is not too far from The Pines in Wandsworth, and in my spare time I enjoy playing cricket.
