Welcome to Brook House, my name is John and I am the General Manager here.

I have been working in the care sector for 25 years now where I first trained as a Nurse. I have now been with Barchester for nearly six years. I thoroughly enjoy life at Brook House and providing a service to meet the needs of people who have nursing needs. There is a great diversity in the care provided here at Brook House.

Rita Minkeliene

Finance Administrator

Hi, my name is Rita and I joined Brook House in October 2017 as the Finance Administrator. I have an NVQ in accounting.

I find working for Barchester to be very rewarding. The company truly cares about the welfare of its employees as much as they care about the welfare of residents.

I am very proud to be working with a great team that endeavours to provide the best standard of care for those they support.

Sorin Caliman

Head of Maintenance

I joined the team at Brook House in 2014 as the Head of Maintenance. It is my responsibility to maintain the home to the highest possible standard. I liaise with outside contractors and the home management team at all times and will always ensure that a room is ready when a resident moves in.

I will always do my best to assist residents and their families with personalising their new quarters. I also make sure that all the gardens, along with the courtyard, are colourful all year round for residents and visitors to enjoy.
