Meet the team

From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home are here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:

Lisa Bradley

General Manager

I began working as a volunteer in a residential home at the age of 14, providing refreshments to residents and their families and guests at the weekends. I was thought of as a 'natural' when working with the elderly and was soon supporting residents with their individual needs and requirements.

On leaving secondary school, I was offered a position as a care assistant and embarked upon a full time career in care at the home where I had spent my youth volunteering.

In 2003, I joined a domiciliary care service, supporting people in their homes and, at the same time, completed training as a senior care coordinator and area manager, obtaining the equivalent NVQ Level 4 qualification in Health and Social Care.

I joined Barchester Healthcare as a Deputy Manager in 2011, originally based at a sister home in Shropshire. A short while after, I moved to Field House to become the General Manager - a post which I held for nearly five years until my transfer to Latimer Court.

I feel privileged to have embarked on a career pathway that has enabled me to meet and care for residents, family and friends who have enriched my life in so many ways.

I have worked in the finance industry for over 20 years in manufacturing, banking and agriculture and wanted to combine administration and finance in a caring profession. This has bought me to Latimer Court. I believe that Latimer Court is the best home in the area. I love the interaction with the residents and their families and the fact that no two days are the same.
