Mrs Sarah lewis
My name is Sarah, I have worked in care for well over 18 years now!
I have been working in a Residential Care Home for the last 10 years which involved me progressing into a Deputy Manager role. I then felt I needed to take on a new and exciting challenge so when the position for a new Deputy came up at Florence Court, I knew at this point I wanted to be apart of the team and take on this new exciting challenge.
My home life is just as busy with 5 dogs and 2 children but I love every minute of it and I am looking forward to my future with Barchester.
I have been in the care sector since 2015 working in an Admin role. I joined Florence Court in May 2021 as the Administrator, this was a very varied and exciting role due to be being a brand new home and I really enjoyed it.
In February 2022 I took on the role of Home Services Advisor this role is very rewarding helping families as they embark on their Care journey.
Florence Court is a beautiful home and I feel honoured to work here. I love getting to know the residents and chatting to them on a daily basis. I get a great deal of satisfaction from my work.
I have worked for barchester for nearly 8 years, starting as a kitchen assistant before transferring to admin where I progressed from bank work to a full time administrator. I love to work as part of a cooperative team and am dedicated to being a point of contact to all the enter the home.

I have been a chef since 2015 and I am very passionate about what I do. My earliest memory of cooking was with my dad, which inspired me to be a chef.
I trained at Southampton City College for 2 years and, in that time, secured my level 2 and level 3 in Catering I worked at David Lloyds for 3 years and progressed to sous chef. I then went to Chilworth Manor, which was a very busy environment; we had weddings of 160 guests, as well as restaurant service with 80-100 customers I then left and came to Florence Court for a better work life balance.
