Nisha Shaji

General Manager

Hi, my name is Nisha, and I am the General Manager here at Glebefields. Welcome to our website!

I have worked in the UK since 2011 and completed my masters in Nursing from John Moore’s University, Liverpool.

I have worked as a nurse since 2008 in a clinical practice and teaching nursing students. I am a hard working person and enjoy the challenges of this profession. I am a person who learns and leads by experience. I believe in team work and I am dedicated to our residents and to providing the best personalised care possible.

I enjoy working with the elderly and vulnerable to meet their needs based on individualised expectations. We as a team, aim to be transparent and like to be approachable. 

 

Shilpa Shakuntala

Deputy Manager

I completed my nursing degree in 2012. I have worked in European countries since 2017 and in the UK since 2019. I completed my masters in Nursing and Leadership & Management from AIT in Ireland.

I have worked as a registered nurse since 2012. I have also acted as a nurse educator for a large number of nursing students. 

Knowing that my care, touch, voice, and time can help someone make it through the night is one of the most rewarding feelings. Sometimes, it's the little things that we do for our residents that make a difference. The nursing profession has opened so many doors for me. 

Working with the elderly allows me to learn about life and their experiences. I enjoy their appreciation for being with them and for taking care of them and they seem so grateful. I treat them the same way I would like to be treated and the way I would like my parents to be treated if they ever need care.

I always feel that there are times when I inspire my residents, but more often they inspire me...
