Wendy Sugden

General Manager

Hi, my name is Wendy and I am the General Manager here at Castle Park. Welcome to our website.

My background was initially medically elderly nursing some 20+ years ago (where does time fly) . I can honestly say I have loved every area of nursing I have worked,  from surgical, infectious diseases, oncology,  working at opposite sides of the world, but since joining Castle Park in 2012 I have become so involved with each and every one of the younger residents we care for, they feel like an extended family to me, I am now in my forever job role.

We strive for ways to promote independence, enhance lifestyles and hopefully have a lot of fun along the way. We appreciate how hard complex care can be for families that is why after the Coronavirus pandemic we made the decision to have a dedicated respite room to support families who need a little bit of breathing space for a short while.

My team and I have many years of experience and enhanced skill, which enable us all deliver the highest standard of care to look after your loved ones.

Please meet some of my team who are as passionate about Castle Park as I am.
