Shaaron Caratella

General Manager

Hi, my name is Shaaron and I am the General Manager here at Queens Court. Welcome to our website!

My BSc (Hons) in Nursing focused on nutrition in older people and this has developed into a passion for ensuring that nutritional meals and hospitality is a core element of our work. A study on the Administration of Medication in Care Homes was undertaken during my MSc.

I am working on a project to build relationships between staff, residents and relatives. This project started with introducing real communication workshops among staff to teach them how to communicate with residents living with dementia and this project has now progressed to an article called Collected Short Stories, which was published in the Journal of Dementia.

I enjoy leading a team who are dedicated to delivering outstanding care and a quality lifestyle to residents. We are committed to promoting a good quality of life to those who live and work at Queens Court. The staff pay special attention to residents' personal preferences and needs. 

This is a very happy home and I am sure that you will get a great reception when you visit us.

Kwaku Tieku

Music Therapist

My name is Kwaku and I am the Music Therapist for Queens Court Care Home. My job requires using music to unlock creativity and stimulate clients to communicate and express themselves where words fail. Through ringing and playing instruments memories are triggered, isolation is reduced and socialisation is promoted. To see the smiles and expression of joy on the faces of the residents is very fulfilling and it makes my role in Queens Court very enjoyable and worthwhile.
