Keeping things personal

At Rectory House

The surroundings at Rectory House Nursing Home are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Rectory House Nursing Home, there’s something for everyone to get involved in with our packed schedule of events and activities. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, have a chat over a cup of tea or enjoy a walk. We have strong connections with the Sompting community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Meet the Manager

Fiona Wiederkehr

I qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 1986 and have worked in a number of specialties for nearly 30 years, as well as spending time working abroad. In 2009 I started part time Higher Education studies and qualified as a sign off mentor for student nurses in 2010, a practice teacher in 2011 and as a qualified teacher of Health Education in 2013. In 2015 I moved into management after successfully getting my first Care Home Manager position.

I fell in love with nursing as I wanted to help people and make a difference to someone no matter how small. To me it is important to show compassion for my residents, relatives and my colleagues, my door is always open to help support them and have discussions when needed.

I am passionate about developing and supporting a team of staff who work well together creating a home where everyone feels part of a family. It is important that high standards of care are delivered in a kind and caring manner, with laughter in the home offering a warm, friendly and homely environment.
