Hello, I’m Barbara and I’ve been married to my husband, David, for over 30 years. We have 3 children who all live and work in Torbay, and they have gifted me with 3 granddaughters. Family is very important to me and I hope to bring my knowledge, caring attitude and empathy to this role. In my spare time, I read, cook, bake, swim and I love knitting baby clothes.
I have been a trained nurse for over 30 years and worked in both the NHS and the private sectors across the country. Following a period of managing care homes, I found that I was missing the resident contact and was given the opportunity to work at Mount Tryon in Torquay.
