Claire Harris

Acting General Manager

Hello, my name is Claire, and I am the Acting General Manager here at Field House – welcome to our website!

I first came into the care sector over 10 years ago, where I first started out in domiciliary care as a carer – and I completely fell in love with the job! Throughout my time in the sector, I’ve worked in the community with people in their own homes, provided rehabilitation from hospital, cared for people who have had strokes, supported people with Parkinson’s, those living with mental health conditions and I have provided palliative care. I have also taken care of people who are living with dementia.

I started my journey here at Field House in 2015, when I joined the team as the Deputy Manager & Head of Care, and was promoted to General Manager at the beginning of 2017. My prior knowledge of and experience at the home before my promotion to this role has been a great asset in supporting residents and and staff.

I have great experience and knowledge of the care sector and I have a passion for delivering high quality care. The residents are at the heart of everything I do here at Field House and are what make the home truly special.

I am able to develop a strong team and share my vision of what outstanding care feels and looks like; I feel very proud to be the General Manager here at Field House.

I think you'll find us very unique and well-suited to provide you or your loved one with the care you deserve.

Becky Oakley

Head of Care

My name is Becky, and I joined Field House in July 2018 as the Head of Care. The residents and staff have been very welcoming and I have enjoyed getting to know everyone! Field House is such a lovely place to work and I look forward to a lasting career within the home.

I have worked in the health and social care sector for over 20 years and I still thoroughly enjoy learning new things every day; no two days are the same in this line of work. I started my working career in 1997 in a small residential home in Shrewsbury, moving on to work with adults with learning disabilities, and then working on an ambulance, before returning to residential care.

Siân Mann

Home Administrator

Having joined Field House in 2014 as the Home Administrator, I have enjoyed every day since. My responsibilities involve ensuring that the contractual, financial and operational elements of the home are in order. However, no two days are the same here, and the interaction I am privileged to have with residents makes for a very family-orientated atmosphere. The ‘home from home’ environment we have created, and continue to develop, makes us truly unique.

This is my first role in the care sector, but I have worked in customer service, healthcare and administrative environments since leaving university, where I achieved a 2:1 BA Honours degree in History. Since joining Barchester, I have achieved a Level 3 NVQ in Business Administration, which has enabled me to support residents and their loved ones in making the transition to living in a care setting a smooth one.

Prior to working at Field House, I was employed at the pharmacy the home used, and became immediately aware of the extra mile the staff here go to for residents. This kindled my wish to join the team as soon as possible.

Outside of work I am a keen gardener – gaining my green fingers and customer focus working at David Austin Roses for over seven years; I also love cooking, going for walks around the Longmynd and Shropshire, reading and tackling a bit of DIY at home (with mixed success).

Matthew Roberts

Head Chef

I joined Barchester as a Chef in another sister home back in 2012, where I worked on developing my skills. The experience there provided me with valuable insight into catering within the care industry. Now that I am the Head Chef at Field House, my role involves providing 5 star courses that are nutritious, with a fine dining experience for everyone we support.

My menus are created with the help of residents; we hold regular meetings to discuss the new seasonal changes to meals and what they’d love to see and enjoy.

I only use locally sourced ingredients and enjoy creating new and appetizing dishes that reflect the likes and dislikes of those who live here.
