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.
