Meet the Denmead Grange Care Home team

From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home will be here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:

Sharon Hare

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I am the general manager here at Denmead Grange. Welcome to our website!

I have been an RGN since 1977. I spent the first half of my nursing life working for the NHS in medicine and elderly care.

I joined the private care sector in 1999 and have never looked back. It is so rewarding to be able to make a positive difference to the lives of residents every single day. I am really excited about working with my team to deliver outstanding care to those we support.

I am a local ‘girl’, having spent the majority of my life living and working in the local area.

I now live in Waterlooville with my husband and my Jack Russell, ‘Jack’, who you may see in the home from time to time. My family are very important to me, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by my two sons, two daughters and multiple grandchildren.

Abbie Johnston

Deputy Manager

I have worked in the care sector since 2012. I have progressed from Activities Coordinator through to Senior Carer, and then became a Deputy Manager in 2018. I was invited to join Barchester Healthcare in October 2019 as the Deputy Manager for this beautiful care home. I am passionate about being involved in the delivery of high quality care for our seniors. I have always found working in care extremely rewarding and I am very excited to be part of the team here at Denmead Grange.
