General Manager

Hi, my name is Sharon and I am the General Manager here at Friston House. Welcome to the website!

I joined the team at Friston House in 2017 and have worked in the health and social care sector for many years, starting out as a Cadet Nurse at the age of 16. I then went on to complete my nursing studies before working in a range of settings with different client groups. I moved into management in the 1990s, remaining in social care, where I developed a passion for supporting older people.
