Meet the Raleigh Manor Care Home team

Our home wouldn’t be what it is today without the wonderful team who have consistently put in hard work and dedication to deliver a high level of care to everyone we support. It is important that our staff are able to build good relationships with residents, and are seen as approachable and always willing to have a chat.

Louise O’Sullivan

Homes Services Advisor

Born and raised in New Zealand I moved to Devon with my English partner to support the family. My career in the aged care industry started in New Zealand with Metlifecare, a very highly respected lifestyle and nursing care provider. As such a rewarding sector to work in, I am delighted to be able to continue on this side of the world with Barchester Healthcare, also an industry leader in care.

Outside work, my passion is four legged. Horses and dogs rule my world so again, Devon is proving the perfect place to be. Raleigh Manor is a 5 star facility in a superb location and I look forward to showing you around.
