Hello, my name is Natalie, and I am the General Manager here at Crandon Springs. Welcome to our website!

Over the years I have worked as an Activities Co-Ordinator, a home care manager, a Customer Co-Ordinator and Quality Assurance Officer with a local authority. I have been a care home manager since 2019.

Crandon Springs has to be the pinnacle of my career, I am very proud to be a part of this exciting journey. I aim to ensure, as a team we are providing outstanding person-centred care, whilst meeting the individuals needs with passion and dignity.

Bethany Chattwood

Home Service Advisor

Hello, my name is Bethany, and I am the Home Service Advisor here at Crandon Springs. My role is to help guide you from initial enquiry to admission into our new home, I am here every step of the way.

As the Home Services Advisor at Crandon Springs I am here to support, offer advice and answer any questions that you may have to help make the move into your new Barchester home less daunting and something to truly look forward too.

I joined Barchester in June 2020 and I have loved every minute of it. I have watched Crandon Springs develop from a building site, to a marketing suite and now a beautiful care home. I am a born and raised Somerset girl and love living in the near surroundings. My career prior to Barchester had been in estate agency and customer experience management roles.

Paul Phillips

Head of Maintenance

Hi I’m Paul. I have worked in maintenance roles for over 20 years. Much of this time was in the leisure industry, maintaining swimming pools, steam rooms and spa pools, etc. I am a painter by trade, but I can turn my hand to most repairs and I have the ability to discover how different things work so that I can make them safe to use.

I’m also NEBOSH qualified and so I have a broad knowledge of health and safety regulations. I’ve lived in Yeovil for 3 years, having spent my whole life previously in Kent. I’ve been married for 31 years and I have 5 grown-up children and 6 grandchildren. In my spare time I love to cook and I enjoy gardening but I’m most often found doing DIY jobs around the home and garden
