Meet the Kings Park Care Home team

Our wonderful team includes carers, activities coordinators, chefs, housekeepers and more. This carefully selected team will be in place to ensure that residents enjoy their time at the home and are supported to live life to the fullest. Meet the General Manager Helen Lacey who is local to Ferndown and can tell you more about what life will be like at Kings Park:

Helen Lacey

General Manager

Hi, my name is Helen, and I am the General Manager here at Kings Park. Welcome to our website!

My background is in care across NHS and private sector settings, with previous managerial experience with a local provider. I am a qualified phlebotomist and, prior to working in healthcare, I worked in sales and event management. I believe strongly in choice and individuality in care.

We want Kings Park to become an integral part of our thriving and close-knit local community. My door is always open for residents, families and staff alike. Please pop in and say hello.

Lucy Lester

Home Services Advisor

My role is to support and guide residents and their families from their initial enquiry through to admission and settling into our lovely new home. I am passionate about our older generation within the community and work alongside local groups and charities to reach those who need some friendly support. Residents and their families will always receive the warmest of welcomes to come and have a chat with me over coffee and cake. I grew up in and around Ferndown and know just what a lovely community it is. Coming back to the town after a regional services advisor role is just fantastic!

Jackie Collins


I joined in early June 2021 from another local Barchester Healthcare home. It has been really lovely being at the home from the start and being part of such a friendly team. Having been in the sector for over ten years my favourite part of the role is engaging with residents and their families and being here to support the team.

Hannah Collins

Activities Coordinator

I am thrilled to be part of such a fun and friendly team! I love being creative and active and really enjoy my day when I can see our residents really enjoying theirs. 

I ensure that residents don’t leave their hobbies behind when they come to Kings Park and so our weekly activity schedule is tailored around what our residents enjoy doing. That could be a live zoom tour about Beluga Whales in Iceland or a wine and cheese tasting evening with our Chef! 

I also arrange regular outings for our minibus trips as being out and about is so important to many of our residents. I look forward to welcoming residents, relatives and visitors to Kings Park and hope to see you soon!

Tim Sach

Head Chef

I have been a chef since leaving school and was fortunate to work at Claridges in London with Gordon Ramsey and Angela Hartnett, where I discovered just how much hard work is involved to run a five star restaurant.

I brought my passion with me and I love to see the residents really enjoy their food and the social time around meals and special events.

Another food passion of mine is pastries and the team and residents here always know when I'm baking, as they tell me how good the aromas are!

Outside of work, I love to watch football and rugby and I enjoy playing golf when I'm not busy with my lovely grandchildren.

Richard Hodsdon

Head of Maintenance

I love working in such a lovely home with a great team and fantastic residents! Over the last twenty five years, I have worked in hospitality maintenance, and bringing my skills and experience to this role is very exciting.

Where possible, residents love to assist me with odd jobs, and it's clear they really enjoy being involved with my DIY projects!

Outside of work, I enjoy fixing up cars that need a little TLC and spending time with my family, including our two cats. My wife and I have just taken up snowboarding so we can start to book some active holidays!

Louise Dyke

Senior Care Assistant

I have been a domiciliary carer and field supervisor previously and am really excited to now be part of the team in our lovely home. I love making our residents feel safe and secure and will always do what I can to make each day special for them.

Nicolas Feraru

Senior Care Assistant

I mostly work through the nights and I enjoy having a chat with our residents over a hot chocolate and midnight snack! I have worked in the care sector for several years and really enjoy supporting and helping our residents and being part of a great team. We have a lot of fun here at Kings Park and there is always an event or activity to look forward to!
