Charles Gilmour Sadler

General Manager

Hi, my name is Charles and I am the General Manager here at Corrina Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I started working in healthcare in 1998 for a company that supported adults with disabilities, and I worked for them for 13 years in various roles. I then became the Operations Manager for a company that ran residential homes and led them to an outstanding rating. I was later a regional manager for a national charity, supporting people with disabilities and those with a history of substance abuse. I started in elderly care by running a 90 bed nursing home and, most recently, a regional role that took me far from home. I’m a father of two little girls and happily married living in Sherfield on Loddon.

I genuinely care for the people we support. I’m always seen around the home and I like to get to know residents and staff alike. I like to run a fun home, where residents and staff enjoy themselves on a daily basis. Care is serious, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be enjoying what we do. I’m open, honest and always approachable.

Residents' Chairman

Hello, I’m Mark and I have been elected as Chairman of our Residents' Committee. The committee meets every two months and we make lifestyle choices for the home. 

I’ve lived at Corrina Lodge since 2017, and I have had so much support with activities that it has engaged my interest in all sorts of ways. My interest in art has resurfaced and I now pursue this hobby actively. I also really enjoy taking photos around the home using my iPad, which get uploaded on to our TV in the reception area and are a great talking point for visitors. 

As a spokesperson for our community, I enjoy helping others, welcoming visitors and getting involved with all aspects of life here at the home. I come from a very large family; I am one of nine siblings. My family and friends visit often and have recognised that living at Corrina Lodge has greatly enhanced my life.

Residents adore our PAT dog, Woody. He's big, soft and fluffy – nobody can resist him! Woody comes to visit weekly with his wonderful owner, Lisa. They visit many residents in their rooms or whilst they're relaxing around the home.
