Hi, my name is Dimpho, and I am the General Manager here at Cubbington Mill. Welcome to our website!
I joined Cubbington Mill in March 2020 as a Deputy Manager and brought with me previous experience in managing clinical aspects Elderly and Dementia care. I am passionate about delivering bespoke patient centred care to the highest standards. I believe in supporting colleagues to ensure that the care we provide does not only achieve best possible outcomes to the residents under my care but also seeks to celebrate their lives as individuals.
As a nurse, I believe in evidenced-based practice and supporting my colleagues to deliver quality care which is person centred and upholds the values of Barchester. I embrace lifelong learning for myself and the rest of the team, in order to update our practice and remain responsive to the needs of residents under our care.
I joined Cubbington as a Unit Nurse Manager in February 2020. I qualified as a nurse in 2016 and have had previous experience in community nursing and palliative care and have worked in a senior nurse role at a nursing care home in Coventry.
The team here at Cubbington were very welcoming and I have settled in nicely. I feel privileged to be part of making the residents' lives as comfortable as possible at this time in their life.
Having finished university with a BA Hons in Fine Art, I found Cubbington Mill the perfect place to share my creative ideas through unique experiences for each resident. I am constantly inspired after my daily conversations with the residents – this helps me to tailor activities to suit them and keep them as independent and positive as possible. I particularly enjoy it when I see a resident come out of their shell through an activity, whether that be listening to their favourite song that brings back memories of their youth or doing something they haven’t tried before.
Karen has worked at Cubbington Mill for over 10 years. She is trained in NVQ Levels 2 & 3 in Care.

I joined Cubbington Mill Care Home as a Care Practitioner and since September 2020 I took the role of Administrator as I have more than 20 year experience in this role. I deal with all the financial issues of the home and support our General Manager. I am always here to support our residents and their families with queries, financial or other. I am proud of our team here in Cubbington, that we get to know our residents and their families is a lovely element to my role.
