Michelle Timperley

General Manager

Hi, my name is Michelle, and I am General Manager here at Marple Dale Care Centre. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Marple Dale Care Centre has to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life. I have worked for the Healthcare sector for approximately 25 years as a Registered General Nurse, Nurse Manager, Turnaround Manager and a Registered Manager throughout the Manchester & Lancashire Area working alongside a wealth of experienced healthcare professionals.

I love my role and what I do and I am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team that demonstrate a nurturing warm and compassionate approach.

The homes core objective is to promote a high standard of person centred, kind and compassionate care.

Pop in for a cuppa and speak to one of the team, you’re always welcome!

Dawn Dunn

Senior Administrator

I have been working in the care home sector since 2001. I was an administrator at another Barchester home – Arbour Court – for 2 years, when the home was part of Westminster Healthcare. I then came to Marple Dale as a Senior Administrator before it was owned by Barchester.

Although it is a very busy environment, I do enjoy the challenge of the role. I am here to support the staff and families, mainly in the financial running of the home, and I will always strive to work as hard as I can.

I work very closely with the General Manager and assist wherever I can.

Being part of the Marple Dale family is very rewarding, and I feel lucky to be working in such a beautiful setting.

Lewis Timperley

Activities Team Lead

Hi, my name is Lewis. I joined the team in September 2021 as a general assistant and then moved to the activities team in January 2022. Most recently I became Activities Team Leader in December 2023, it has been a great journey here at Marple Dale and can’t wait to continue. I love my role as one of the homes Activity Coordinators, and love finding out new and exciting ways to engage residents with activities and each other.

Here at Marple Dale we try to do as many different activities as we can, to keep our residents as active as possible, as it is so important to keep active. I love what I do and love knowing that our residents have so much enjoyment from such a wide variety of activities.
