Hi, my name is Karen, and I am the General Manager here at Cookridge Court. Welcome to our website!
I joined the home in January 2018. The first part of my career was spent with the NHS as a trauma nurse and nurse manager. I moved into the private sector in 2010 ago and have enjoyed every second since then. The provision of gold standard care to our residents is my passion and, here at Cookridge Court, we strive to deliver this every single day. I believe it is a privilege to be able to work with such a conscientious, caring and compassionate team who never fail to put the residents first.Get in touch Meet my team
