Neil Todd

Interim General Manager

Hi, my name is Neil, and I am the Interim General Manager here at Boroughbridge Manor. Welcome to our website!

I have had a good and progressive career, beginning as a carer and eventually progressing to a senior carer, team leader and deputy manager. 

I then ventured into the assessment and social work teams within a local authority before taking on my first home in the private sector as a registered manager. I led the home from an 'Inadequate' rating to a good, safe and successful home.

I am kind and compassionate and I focus on providing a safe, warm and caring environment for everyone we support.

Shelbie Taylor & Suzanne Scholfield

We all know that keeping active is important. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities. Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.
