Kerry Tidd

General Manager

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

I have been in the care sector for over 25 years, beginning my career as a care assistant and working my way up to being a manager, which is something that I have done for over 15 years. My previous position was as a regional manager in the private care sector. I feel that my experience has made me a competent and capable General Manager and I have a wealth of knowledge around managing residential and domiciliary care services. 

I am looking forward to being able to work for a company that will ensure that I have the autonomy to allow myself to continue with my aims to ensure that every person's needs are met through a person-centred approach and ensuring that the same amount of passion and commitment is applied to everyone, as though they were a member of my own family.  

I am proud of everything that I have achieved, but getting an 'Outstanding' rating in my last CQC inspection is one of my greatest accomplishments.

Ariana Flynn

Activities Coordinator

Hello, my name is Ariana, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Hethersett hall. I started here as an Activities Assistant whilst still at university.

In 2017, I graduated with a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art, which I hope to one day expand upon by achieving a master's degree in Art Therapy, specialising in people living with dementia.

In the later months of 2017, I got the opportunity to become the Activities Coordinator in the home, which I took.

I enjoy making the residents happy and creating a person-centred activities programme. But, most of all, I love the relationship I have with the residents, which I have built since first starting here, and look forward to coming into the home every day.

It's not work when you love what you do.
