Nicole Benn

General Manager

Hello. My name is Nicole, and I am the General Manager here at Spen Court. Welcome to our website.

My aim is to ensure residents, staff, families and visitors all feel they are in a caring, welcoming environment and being supported by every member of our team.

I began my career as a Carer at the age of 18 and have gained experience and qualifications holding my Diploma Level 7 within management to progress to my current role. Barchester has a high standard of care and superior lifestyle delivered throughout the company, and I endeavour to deliver those same values in our home.

I always enjoy spending time with residents and their families, and am always available for a chat about our home, staff, services and most importantly, our residents.
