Dimpho Kavanagh

General Manager

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.        

Karen Martin

Team Leader

Karen has worked at Cubbington Mill for over 10 years. She is trained in NVQ Levels 2 & 3 in Care. This, alongside her many years of experience at Cubbington Mill, means she not only delivers exceptional care to residents, but that she also can assist in training any new carers so they can achieve the high care standards required when working for the home.

Hannah Fawcett

Activities Coordinator

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.

Vivi Mitrentzou


I joined Cubbington Mill in 2019 as a Care Practitioner and, in September 2020, I took on the role of Administrator, as I have more than 20 year's experience in this field.

My day involves dealing with all the financial issues of the home and supporting the General Manager. I am always here to support our residents or their families with all queries, financial or not.  

I am proud of our team here in Cubbington and the fact that we get to know our residents and their families is a lovely element to my role.
