Rebecca Condie

General Manager

Hi, my name is Rebecca, and I am the General Manager here at Marriott House & Lodge.

I have worked in care since I was 16, which is a very long time ago!

I started my career as a carer and worked my way up to being a Team Leader, Deputy Manager, Home Manager and then Operations Manager.

My last role was as an Operations Manager, where I covered 5 nursing homes in the south east. I enjoyed this role, but did miss being the manager of my own home and being able to see through changes and improvements.

In 2011 I won a South East Managers Award and went on to win the National Managers Award the same year.

Sarah Harding

Head of Activities/Care Practitioner

My name is Sarah and I have worked at Marriott House and Lodge for over 15 years in a variety of roles.

I began my Barchester journey as a Night Care Assistant in 2000. Through completing care qualifications, I progressed to Senior Care Assistant and, more recently, I have also adopted the responsibilties of a Care Practitioner as well. I have also been involved in activities within the home and have lead the Activities Team for many years. I have completed many training courses through the Barchester Healthcare Training Academy, which have further enhanced my skills in a range of areas, including, care, activities and providing training. I now share my time between being a Care Practitioner and leading the Activities Team.

Leading the Activities Team means that I work with a group of staff and volunteers to provide activities for the residents that help to keep them active and stimulated. My duties include planning events for residents and their families, organizing day-to-day activities, arranging outings, and also offering residents that very crucial one-to-one time. I work closely with local groups, meaning that Marriott House & Lodge remains a key part of the local community with regular visitors who offer support to families and friends.

I am very much involved in the ‘whole home approach’ in regards to the care we provide as a care home; my hands-on approach allows me to work closely with all members of the team and help them to develop their skills. 

Dignity in care is a particular area that I am always keen to promote within the home and I believe that we can all enhance the lives of residents.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my dog, Chester, who I bring to work with me most days. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family.

Monty

Visiting Dog

Britain is considered a nation of animal lovers and we like to embrace this fact here at Marriott House & Lodge. Pets hold a special place in many people’s hearts and lives, and there is compelling evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that interacting with pets can be beneficial to the physical, social and emotional well-being of humans.

The beautiful Monty is a miniature Shih Tzu. He belongs to Deputy Manager, Irene, and visits most days. He can often can be found around the home sitting on people’s laps or playing in the lounge which always puts a smile on people's faces. A simple thing like a wagging tail can put everyone at ease.
