Meet the Ouse View Care Home team

From senior care staff and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home will be here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:

Pauline Hodgson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Pauline and I am the General Manager here at Ouse View. Welcome to our website.

I am a qualified nurse and have been involved with care homes in the private sector since 1990. I have had many varied roles during that time, from being a Home Owner to a Regional Manager, Project Manager and General Manager.

I joined Barchester Healthcare in March 2010 and commissioned a new home for them in Chellaston, Derby and latterly I have been the General Manager at one of their homes in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

I am very proud to be given the opportunity to support Ouse View and welcome you to come and meet our team to discuss your loved one’s care needs or just to have a cup of tea and a chat.

Fatima Buxton

Deputy Home Manager

Hello. My name is Fatima and I am the Deputy Manager here at Ouse View. For many years I was Head of Memory Lane at one of our sister homes, and the positive experience of working with people living with dementia has changed my approach to providing care. 

I am passionate about delivering the very best care possible, and I support my team to ensure the people living in our community have the best experience of communal living, whilst maintaining individuality and meaningful engagement.

Adam Pope

Home Services Advisor

My role involves supporting residents and their families during the initial process of moving in to our home. Having worked for many years with non-profit organisations in the field of senior care, I am passionate about good care and understand how difficult the transition can be when moving into a care home. I am here to help with this transition in any way I can, whether that is providing information, signposting, or just being a friendly ear to listen.

I also network in the community to make contacts that will benefit our residents in supporting meaningful activity and friendship, and which in turn bring additional events and activities into our home. I am someone who is always happy to meet people to tell them more about our care and services, and I extend a warm invitation for you to contact us for further information.

My name is Louise and I am the Administration Manager at Ouse View. Although I only joined Barchester Healthcare in 2019, I have over 13 years of administration experience specifically within the residential care sector. I love working in a care home setting, and prior to taking up this role at Ouse View, I was the Administrator at another wonderful Barchester home, Lindum House in Beverley.

I am now looking forward to the unique challenge of being part of a team involved in launching a new care home and helping it flourish.

Richard Sweeting

Activities Coordinator

From an early age I have always been involved in my local community. I have lived in the town of Tadcaster all my life, and for 30 years represented the local council, and on two separate occasions have been appointed Town Mayor. I came to work for Barchester in 2001 and it has given me the opportunity to bring the social side of care within my role to a different level.

As a child I was brought up by my grandparents, and as times changed I ended up caring for them. Working in a care home has always played a very special part in my life, with the residents and staff all now being part of my extended family.

Sharon Ward

Head of Housekeeping

I have worked as Head of Housekeeping for Barchester since 2006, and prior to this I worked as part of the domestic team for 14 years. I find my role a challenging one, yet at the same time a very rewarding one too. Here at Ouse View I have an excellent team that assists me in keeping the home to a very high standard of cleanliness and safety.

Outside of work I am kept very busy with a young family; I have two daughters and a son, and my husband and I love spending all our spare time with them.

Eve Goodger

Head Chef

I have worked for Barchester for over 12 years, 7 of which were as Second Chef, and the last 5 years as Head Chef within one of our sister homes.

Since leaving school, I have worked in catering within a variety of roles, mainly in the care sector, which I thoroughly enjoy. Food is a real passion of mine, and I am extremely proud to be given the chance to work at Ouse View, and to provide our wonderful residents with delicious and nutritious meals.

Angela Souter

Senior Care Assistant

Originally from Northern Ireland, I also consider myself part Cypriot, German and English, having grown up as part of a British army family.

I came to the care sector a little later in life, having previously worked in catering and hospitality management. My career change came after I began caring for my own parents, and found out just how important a job it was.

I have learnt that the smallest action can have the biggest impact on a person's well-being, and I now look forward to bringing fulfilment, dignity and respect to our residents at Ouse View.

After many years spent working with children and young people, I have found it hugely rewarding being able to use my care skills to look after our wonderful residents at Ouse View.
