Meet the Field House Care Home team

From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home are 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:

Paula Wiggan

General Manager

Hi, my name is Paula, and I am the General Manager here at Field House. Welcome to our website!

I started working in the care sector when I was 20 years old after assisting my grandmother when she was ill, with the need for oxygen therapy.

When I lost my grandmother, I decided that I had lots to offer to the care sector, and that this is where I wanted to build my career. I started off as a care assistant and gradually worked my way up to a senior care assistant following  the completion of my NVQ level 2.

Following a break to start my family, I decided to pursue the career that I loved so much, gradually working my way up the ladder to Deputy Manager at a sister care home within Barchester.

In January 2021, I was offered a wonderful opportunity to become the General Manager at Field House and I was honoured and privileged to begin my journey as a General Manager at this home and build relationships with residents loved ones alike. 

Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I am currently studying to complete an NVQ level 5 in Management & Leadership.

Gemma Pledger

Activities Coordinator

I have worked in care since 2017. I moved across into the role from hotel management when I realised that I wanted to change careers.

I am studying a BSc in Psychology with Counselling, with the long term goal of helping people rebuild their lives after suffering trauma. I realised a few years ago that, as a society, we are pretty poor at identifying trauma, and I wanted to make a difference to the lives of those people who were suffering in silence.

I pride myself of bringing a smile to the home every single day and thinking as far outside the box as I can.

Amy Pugh

Head of Maintenance

I come from a background in hospitality, having trained for a Modern Apprenticeship in Hotel Management. Then I progressed to working in a pub/hotel. Having worked in this environment, I became increasingly interested in the maintenance side of running an establishment.

I worked in a local hospice for twelve years in the laundry department and branched out into maintenance and stewarding whilst there.

In my spare time I enjoy woodworking, and create furniture out of used pallets.

I joined Field House to be part of this great team, and wanted to maintain the high standards within the home and ensure the residents' environment is always comfortable.

Everyday has been an enjoyable day in my job; I love the work I do and the environment I work in.

Lea-Anne Jukes

Hi, my name is Lea-Anne and I’m a Day Senior here at Field House. I’ve been here since 2013 and eventually worked my way up to a senior position.

My standards are high and I aim to provide the best care for your loved ones; care is my passion and every day is different.

I’m the 'Infection Control Champion' at Field House and ensure that all training is up-to-date and all of my team are knowledgeable on these matters.

I have my VQ3 in Health & Social Care and felt so happy when I achieved this personal goal with support from my General Manager.
