Sherri Sargent

General Manager

My name is Sherri and I am proud to say that I am the General Manager at Hafan-Y-Coed, a nursing and residential care home that is committed to delivering excellent care and support to the people who live and stay here.

My passion has been leading and promoting excellent health, care and support services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. To achieve this, I have been working in partnership with regulatory bodies, including the CCSIW, RQIA, NHS Wales and the CCW, for over 15 years, covering a variety of support, care and health services.

I am a qualified Registered Manager and have lead services as the Responsible Individual for Wales and Responsible Person for Northern Ireland, working together with teams across the country to achieve high quality services.

I hope to be able to continue my own personal journey with the staff at Hafan-Y-Coed to deliver on the outcomes identified for both the residents at the home and the team I am working with.

Matthew Braddock

Clinical Deputy Manager

My name is Matthew and I have been the Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead for Hafan-Y-Coed since January 2016. After graduating from Swansea University with a Nursing degree, I spent the early years of my career in the A&E department at Morriston Hospital, where I gained the majority of my clinical expertise. I subsequently worked for 3 years in Saudi Arabia, where I was employed by BAE Systems as a Nurse Practitioner. In this post, I served the primary care needs of approximately 2,000 employees and their families at a military base in Riyadh.

At Hafan-Y-Coed, my role is to manage, coordinate and support the clinical team within the home, ensuring that the nursing care we deliver is of the highest standard. Having always been passionate about improving the quality of care available to the elderly and those who are most vulnerable, I have found my current post to be incredibly rewarding.

No day is ever the same at Hafan-Y-Coed, and I continue to enjoy every minute here. I feel privileged to lead such a dedicated and committed team who are constantly seeking new ways to improve the care we provide to those who live at the home.
