Hi, my name is Shaaron and I am the General Manager here at Queens Court. Welcome to our website!
I joined Barchester Healthcare in 1998. Prior to that, I worked in the NHS, where I developed my passion: the care of older people. After I qualified as an RGN, I continued to develop my career by studying for my BSc in Nursing Studies, my Diploma in Orthopaedics and my MSc in Health Sciences.
The team and I are committed to ensuring that the residents have a good quality of life. This is working with evidence-based practices on projects like nutrition, non-pharmaceutical interventions, life story work, and we advocate the Whole Home Approach Model.
We are proud to have consistently achieved good reports and reviews from those who know us. This is a very happy home and you are very welcome to visit us.
I have been working at Queens Court since 2005. During this period of time, I have faced many challenges and hurdles in order to reach the position I am in today. This wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible team that we have here. I enjoy my job as head of hotel services; it has boosted my confidence and inspires me to achieve more.
I joined Queens Court in 2021 and am thoroughly enjoying working here. I have been in the industry as a chef for nineteen years, specialise in Gateaux design and am passionate about delivering the best dining and hospitality experience which our home is renowned for. I have qualifications in professional cookery, management and food supervision. I’ve achieved the top rating of “5” in Food Hygiene twelve times.
As of May 2021, Krisztina joins us as our Home Administrator. Kristztina transferred from our Bristol home where she has been since 2016. In her free time she enjoys outdoor sports, free climbing and loves to read. "My door is always open to our residents, families and team!"
I am Rhada. I have been part of Queens Court since 1996. My journey began here as a Care Assistant many years ago. I have had the opportunity to appreciate many learning opportunities and became a Care Practitioner in 2015. Queens Court recognised my capabilities and supported me to pursue my dream to become a nurse! I achieved my goal and graduated as a fully fledged nurse in 2019! I would like to thank sincerely our General Manager, Shaaron Caratella and the Queens Court Team for all their support during my career progession.
I qualified as the first Care Practitioner at Queens Court. I support the nurses and contribute to the provision and monitoring the care of our residents. I am also the Training & Induction champion for the home.
I started to work at Queens Court in summer 2018. I began as a Care Assistant before being promoted to Admin Assistant when I completed my Certificate in Book Keeping. I am passionate about my job!
We are delighted to introduce Emilia as our Activities Lead. Emilia has been part of Queens Court for some time and is excellent in ensuring our residents have a full and interesting life introducing many new hobbies, activities and experiences!

Having joined Queens Court in 2019 I have developed many skills and am beginning to feel ready to look to other aspects of my career in particular leadership training. I love my job, looking after people and helping them be the best they can be is what inspires me the most! Apart from nursing I enjoy sports, the gym and I practice mindfulness and yoga. I'm really passionate about music and dance and quite often perform for our residents which is fantastic!
