Nicola Vaughan

General Manager

Hi, my name is Nicola, and I am the Acting General Manager. Welcome to our website!

I am often asked what motivates me to do this job, and I always reply that it is an honour to work with a team who are so dedicated to providing the best care possible for our residents.

I also enjoy seeing staff grow in confidence and knowledge and progress through their career.

I originally trained as a mental health nurse, and I have over 40 years’ experience working within healthcare. I have worked in a hospital, the community and care homes in various roles, from staff nurse to service manager, Head of Nursing, and Operations Director. I am also qualified in teaching regarding behaviours that challenge.

I have enjoyed every minute of my career, which has been varied and interesting. I enjoy working with teams to watch them grow, and ultimately see smiles on the faces of those we support.

Angela Gardner

Angela Gardner

Senior Carer

Angie's uncompromising dedication to her work is an inspiration to all staff; not only has she welded a team together on the Dementia Care Unit, but she does not hesitate to help other staff throughout the home. On many occasions she has gone the extra mile by returning to the home on her days off, or on leave, to help out when there is a problem. Angie has served residents in the home for twenty years.

In 2016, Angie was named as a Divisional Winner for Memory Lane Champion in the Barchester Care Awards.
