Meet the The Cedars Care Home team

Our wonderful team comprises nurses, carers, activities coordinators, chefs, housekeepers and more. These people are here to ensure that residents enjoy their time at the home and are supported to live life to the fullest. Meet some of our staff below:

Sam Humphries

General Manager

Hello, my name is Sam and I am very excited to be joining the team here at Cedars. They have recently achieved an inspection rating of ‘Good’ therefore I am already proud of a hard-working team and look forward to working with them. I look forward to providing them with further, ongoing support to enhance their care delivery and the overall experience for our residents.

Where I worked previously, I assisted the team gain a wider knowledge and understanding to provide quality care and this enabled us to improve the overall inspection rating to ‘Good’ also. I believe that good, strong team working can achieve better outcomes.

Since 2007 I have enjoyed working within this care sector and have gained a varied knowledge and understanding to enable me to support those in need of care and assistance. In 2011 I graduated as a nurse at Southampton University.

I also appreciate the need to look after the families of our residents and ensure we meet their needs also. Recognising the needs of the family as a whole will help us to deliver complete, person-centred care for our residents and enable them to be empowered to live their lives to the full.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email. I am more than happy to discuss the needs and/or concerns you may have for yourself or your loved one. We look forward to hearing from you!

Angela Cawsey

Activities Cooridnator

My name is Angela Cawsey and I am 60 years young.  I have lived locally to Cedars since 2011, firstly in Downton and more recently in Alderbury.  In the past I have worked with mature people in their homes, and adults with learning difficulties in a number of settings.   During lockdown I ran daily zoom sessions for wellbeing, including bingo and quizzes.

I enjoy spending time with people and helping them smile, whether on a one-to-one basis or in groups.  When my children were young I volunteered as a helper at Boys Brigade and St John’s Ambulance which was very rewarding.
