Samantha Steadman


Hi, my name Sam and I am the Administrator at Castle Rise Care Home. Although I am new to the care industry I have a degree in Business Studies and 25 years finance, HR and administration experience, my previously roles have included management accountant and  finance & HR manager. 

I came to Castle Rise in May 2020 during the height of the Covid pandemic and, having never worked in care before, I knew I was facing a steep learning curve but I took on the challenge and I now look after all the finance, HR and administration functions for the home. If you have any queries regarding finance or administration I am your first port of call.

No two days are the same at Castle Rise which I thrive on but I am always available for a coffee and a chat with residents or relatives alike.
