Our Team

Linda Ryan

General Manager

Hi, my name is Linda and I am the General Manager here at Red Oaks. Welcome to our website!

I have been a registered nurse for over 20 years. My passion for working with older people in a nursing home environment started with my first registered manager position in 2003. My career has also included positions such as a Practice Development Nurse and a Dementia Specialist. Before Barchester, I was a Director of Care for a luxury retirement village, commissioning both a nursing home and a domiciliary care service. This position involved managing, coaching and mentoring the registered managers.

I am proud of being able to make a difference to peoples' lives by providing high quality, person-centred care in a supportive learning environment within an open and fair culture.

My door is always open for a coffee (or tea) and a chat, whether that is for residents, relatives or staff members.
