Daney Thomas

Daney Thomas

General Manager

Hi, my name is Daney, and I am the General Manager here at Moreton Hill. Welcome to our website!

I am a registered general nurse with over 22 years of experience. I started working in management in 2016 and, prior to that, I had various positions in other residential, nursing and dementia care homes.

I heard about Barchester from one of my trustworthy friends. It was highly recommended to me as a great company to work for. I like to be part of a great team and be the instrument for making positive changes in care homes for both residents and staff.

As a young girl, I made the decision to leave my own country, which was my biggest challenge of my entire life, so I do understand the impact that big changes can have on people, such as moving into a care home. 

I pride myself on my ability to listen, be compassionate and deliver person-centred care. I have achieved an NVQ Level 5 in Care & Leadership, and have previous experience in turning homes with low CQC ratings around.

I am a firm, fair and friendly person, who always likes to move forward. I am a strong believer in family and, in my spare time, my two boys keep me busy. I do enjoy travelling and baking as well. Before coming to this country, I worked on my parents' farm and helped them to run the family business.

I first joined the company that was to become Barchester Healthcare in 1992 and supported the team on site throughout the construction of Moreton Hill before becoming their Administrator when they opened their doors for business in 1994. As such, I have a wealth of experience and my team and I are on hand to deal with any queries visitors or callers may have about the day-to-day running of the home.
