Christine Matthews

General Manager

Hi, my name is Christine, and I am the General Manager here at Meadowbeck. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.

My background is in nursing, with over 35 years’ experience. I trained and worked in Yorkshire for most of my career. I did live and work in Dorset for a short time before moving into management in the 1990s. Following this, I was lucky to have the opportunity to be a care provider for 14 years, specialising in dementia and end of life care. 

My team and I have already achieved so much at Meadowbeck. I feel that we can really make a difference to the lives of those we support and be part of our local community.

Helen Warner


I have worked in Administration all my working life, having achieved my NVQ 2 & 3 in Business Administration a couple of years after leaving school .

I joined Barchester as a Receptionist on a temporary contract at our sister home, Mulberry court. They must have liked me, because they asked me to stay on permanently! I was there for just over 4 years and loved it.

I wanted to broaden my horizon and applied for the Administrator position here at Meadowbeck and was lucky enough to get it!

I am now here to welcome you to our home and offer advice and support wherever I can.

Tina Holmes

Activities Coordinator

Hi, I’m Tina, and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Meadowbeck. 

I began working at the home as a Care Assistant in 1999. In 2014, I changed my role to Social Support Worker, which I enjoyed, as it involved supporting residents at Meadowbeck in their daily lifestyles. 

I then became the Activities Coordinator in May 2017. I love working with the elderly and getting to know them and their families, in addition to supporting them in their active lifestyles to make their time at Meadowbeck as enjoyable as possible.
