Bethann Sandall

General Manager / Rheolwr Cyffredinol

Hi, my name is Beth and I am the General Manager here at Rhiwlas.

I am a registered nurse with a postgraduate diploma in Mental Health Nursing and am passionate about providing the very best care for those we support.

I am committed to providing holistic care, which brings together all the skills of our fantastic and dedicated team, and those of the wider professional network, to promote the health, well-being and quality of life of residents here at Rhiwlas.

Nicola Bradley

Clinical Lead Nurse

I have been a nurse since 2005 and I have previously worked on an acute medical ward as a Deputy Manager. I particularly enjoy caring for the elderly and I love hearing about their life experiences. My nursing career has given me the opportunity to care for people with a variety of conditions. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and also love reading and gardening.

Dawn Edwards

Senior Care Assistant

I started as a senior carer and held this position in both our residential and nursing communities within the home. In 2017, I transferred to become Activities Coordinator which was extremely enjoyable as I spent time with our Residents who have a lifetime of experience and memories and I am passionate that this continues when they come to live at Rhiwlas. In late 2019 I moved to manage our residential community and it is vital in my opinion, that our Residents continue to live well and full as they make new memories, share new experiences and I am passionate about the delivery of high quality care.

I am a Welsh speaker, originally from the little welsh village, Bethesda, on the edge of Snowdonia, before moving to Flint, where I have lived for over 30 years. Outside of work, I love walking, gardening and all craft work, and spending time with my 2 sons, Tom and Sam, and my little dog, Ollie.

Jay Owen

Head Chef

I joined the team at Rhiwlas in April 2020, after having worked at its sister home for just over 12 months.

I have worked in care for 20+ years and I am passionate about ensuring the people in our care have as much independence, choice and quality of life as possible. I love cooking and my role within the team at Rhiwlas means I am lucky enough to do what I love and hopefully enhance the lives of everyone living here.

Food is so important for so many different reasons – from simple enjoyment and an opportunity to socialise to ensuring individual dietary and nutritional needs are met. I enjoy talking with our residents, getting to know them, learning about their lives and getting some recipe ideas! 

Outside of work, I am a member of the National Trust and enjoy visiting & learning about the histories of all the amazing properties in their care. I have two dogs—Toby & Mabel—and our favourite thing is walking at Talacre Beach when the tide is out and it’s windy & drizzly!

If there is anything you want to talk about, please get in touch. Feedback is extremely important to me; it’s not something I take as a personal critique, but more as an opportunity to learn and make life more enjoyable for everyone. It tells me not only what I get right, but also what I need to change or improve on.

Lesley Johnson

Head Housekeeper

Hi, my name is Lesley and I am the Head Housekeeper here at Rhiwlas. I joined the team in 2019 after previously working at our sister home, Bod Hyfryd. Before joining Barchester I had a sewing and textile background of over 20 years in various settings. I really enjoy my role especially my chats with the residents. I have a fantastic team and we work hard to ensure our resident’s environment is kept clean and tidy, a relaxing space they can thrive in.
