Hi, my name is Karen, and I am the General Manager here at Kingsland House. Welcome to our website!
I have been a nurse for over 30 years and have worked both in the NHS and the private sector. A large part of my experience has been in palliative care and I have been lucky to have been able to run the inpatient unit at Phyllis Tuckwell hospice in Farnham, and worked as a Specialist community nurse for St Catharine’s Hospice in Crawley
I moved into management of nursing homes and was the manager of the first home to get an Outstanding rating from the CQC in Surrey. I love being a nurse and have learnt so much from the people I have met and cared for in the different settings that I have had the privilege to work in.
I have been involved in various projects with Surrey University looking at ethics in Health care, and with Skills for care. The Gold standard framework has also been something I have been involved with and have been able to use what I have learnt to benefit the wellbeing of residents and increase Quality of life.

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Kingsland House. I have over 30 years’ experience in the care sector. I hold an ILM Level 5 in Leadership & Management and worked as a Facilities Manager for many years.
I am enjoying my role, encouraging the residents to engage and try new activities. I have some great ideas for events, along with providing daily activities within the home to help stimulate all the residents, either in groups or individually.
I like to have regular get-togethers with the residents to discuss new ideas and what they would like to experience, so that we can provide activities to each individual taking into account their interests, along with mind, body & soul.
I am a mum of 4 and have 2 grandchildren, and enjoy the outdoors.
My main responsibility is to keep our home and grounds looking their best, and to a high standard.
Hi, my name is Theresa, and I have worked at Kingsland House since 2010. I have worked in the kitchen, in housekeeping, and now finally I have settled as an Activities Assistant. I love my job, as every day is a new adventure with the residents.
I started working at Kingsland House in November 2015, originally as a Carer. I later became a part of the catering team, working as a Hostess, which was lovely, as I got to spend lots of time with residents. I am now Head of Housekeeping, and I love my job. The best part of being at Kingsland House is the staff and residents – they make this house a home.
