Daily life

Keeping things personal

At Tall Trees

The wonderful surroundings at Tall Trees 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 Tall Trees, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the grounds. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Chipping Norton community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Meet the Manager

Amanda Harland

I started as Home Manager at Tall Trees at the end of June 2020 and see my role as leading, supporting and managing the team in providing safe and effective care; making a positive difference to the lives of all our residents.

I believe teamwork is essential and we have a compassionate and competent team at Tall Trees which I aim to develop further. We all share the focus of improving quality of care and wellbeing amongst our residents. Also, looking after each other is particularly important at this time.

I started General Nursing in Yorkshire aged 18 and went on to study psychology and Mental Health Nursing, qualifying in 1989. I worked in the NHS for more than 20 years, in community and inpatient settings. In 2004, whilst working in the NHS, I was seconded to the University of York as a lecturer, training nurses and also completed an MSc degree in Health Sciences. This training experience led to working within private sector Care Homes as a Trainer in areas such as Dementia Care, Health & Safety, Infection Control, Medicines Management and Mental Capacity Act / DOLS.

Following supporting my family to find a suitable Nursing Home placement for a close relative, I sought experience of working as a Deputy then Home Manager. Particular areas of practice that I find rewarding are caring for those living with dementia and end of life care. I bring significant experience with me to Caring Homes and was attracted to the company as their values reflect my own, that is, a person-centred approach and high standards of care.

The Cotswolds, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a beautiful part of the country; second only to my native North Yorkshire! Having lived and worked in Oxfordshire during my NHS career, I chose to return when offered the Home Manager role within Tall Trees.

During time away from Tall Trees, I enjoy vegetarian cooking, gardening (tending my own garden and visiting gardens), interior design and listening to music. I also play guitar, but not as well as I would like to. I own a West Highland White Terrier ‘Wilbur’ who played an active role visiting residents in the Home I managed in Yorkshire, hopefully, he can soon join us at Tall Trees, visiting residents who enjoy contact with dogs.

I look forward to the job satisfaction that being Home Manager here will undoubtedly bring. I operate an open-door policy with staff, our residents and their families and work flexible hours to ensure the Home operates effectively at all times, supporting the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff.

I very much look forward to meeting you in the near future.
