Hi, my name is Kelly and I am the General Manager here at Arbour Court. Welcome to our website!
I have worked at Arbour Court since 2000 and started my career as a care assistant.
After completing my NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Health & Social Care, I became interested in helping other staff to achieve theirs. I qualified as an assessor and became the Home Trainer in 2009.
After achieving a Leadership & Management qualification, I became a Care Practitioner and was promoted to the Head of Hollies Unit in November 2016, and eventually to Deputy Manager.
I am passionate about providing good, person-centred dementia care for those we support. I also take an active role in the training and recruitment of staff.

My name is Elspeth and I am the Administrator here at Arbour Court. Before working for Barchester, I worked in various admin roles, including a few different positions at the University of Manchester, before relocating to Wales, where I worked at Swansea University and at a bank.
I joined Barchester in December 2016 and started at a different home, covering maternity leave until I moved to Arbour Court in October 2017.
I enjoy making sure everything is organised and putting new processes into action. I have also loved getting to know all the staff and residents at the home.
My name is Joe and I am an Activities Coordinator here at Arbour Court.
I started my career as a chef in various hotels in Torquay before moving to Manchester. After working in various other jobs, I became a chef at a different home. Working as a chef for many years, I decided on a career change and came to Arbour Court to be the Activities Coordinator.
I love spending time with the residents and getting to know them on a personal level. We go on outings, play games and find out residents’ likes and dislikes.
My interests include football, travelling and going to the races. After spending the day interacting with the residents, I love to relax and wind down with some peace and quiet.
My name is Chloe Booth and I am one of the Activities Coordinators here at Arbour Court. I have worked at this home since 2012 and have spent much of that time as a Carer. However, in 2018, I decided I was ready for a change, and applied to work on the activities team.
I love working at Arbour Court; I love the residents, the staff and the nature of the work. Dementia is something that turns people’s lives upside down, so if I can spend time with someone and make them smile, I feel I have done my job well.
