Jenna May

General Manager

Hi, my name is Jenna and I am the General Manager here at Moors Manor Care Home. Welcome to our website!

Jenna has worked in senior healthcare roles, including at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, and has spent the past ten years working in management in a nursing home environment, rising through the ranks within the homes so she has a good understanding of all job roles within the home.

Coming to Moors Manor is a really exciting move for me, the home has a great sense of community and I am looking forward to building on this.  Communication within the team,  the residents and relatives is hugely important to me and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone.

I’ve been in the care sector since 2017, previously in a regional role. I am enjoying being part of the team here and bringing the home together with the local community. Residents and their families are at the heart of what we do here and I am passionate about making this a positive experience.

Sarah Wiggett

Administration Manager

I have been part of the Barchester family since August 2021, and am thrilled to be part of such a supportive and exceptional company.

I started in the healthcare sector in 2011in a care home as a carer, working closely with dementia and supporting vulnerable adults with their daily needs. Over those years I found that I enjoyed the administration side of health and social care. I love being part of and working within a care home as no day is the same, and I get to still be very much involved with the residents we care for.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, paddle boarding, gardening, dog walks and taste testing the different gin varieties that there is to offer.
