We provide 24-hour nursing care and personal support to frail older people, people with long term illnesses, people with sensory deficits and people living with dementia, who are cared for in our specialist ‘Memory Lane’ community.

Mandy Vettraino

General Manager

Welcome to Southerndown Care Home!

My name is Mandy Vettraino and I am the General Manager here.

My career in nursing started as a carer, where I worked my way up the ladder, where I eventually became a General Manager. I have now been managing for 15 years in 3 homes around Oxford, supporting elderly residents with nursing and dementia care.

I like to be involved with the residents and their families, it is a home for every one and high quality care with a holistic approach is essential. In 2013 I was presented with a dignity in care award from Age UK. My team here in Southerndown are champions together in ensuring dignity and true quality care is always the priority.
