Sharon Sperring

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I am the General Manager here at North Park. Welcome to our website!

I started my career in care as a Care Assistant, working my way up to Senior Carer, then Deputy Manager, and finally General Manager. I have worked in the care sector now for over 15 years and have been a Manager for over 10 years. I am extremely passionate about the care we provide for residents at the home, and our team strives to deliver the best possible care to those we support.

My goal is to enhance and improve the lives of residents by delivering personalised care based on each individual’s needs. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is meeting and getting to know each resident and their loved ones, as we aim to provide a true home-away-from-home experience.

We hope you’ll find North Park ideally suited to meet your needs now and in the future.

This is my dream job; I love organising activities, crafts, outings, talking and basically being silly.
