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.
