Meet the Trinity Manor Care Home team

We tailor our services to meet the unique requirements of each person and in a way that celebrates their individuality, whilst also helping residents to maintain as much independence as possible and treating them with dignity at all times.

Sohail Daniel

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sohail, and I am the General Manager here at Trinity Manor. Welcome to our website!

As a Registered General Nurse, I have worked within the private care home sector ever since 2009, where I have been able to learn, develop and share my skill set in order to benefit the residents I look after. 

During my time working within the dementia sector, I was able to access specialist knowledge on how to encourage and enhance the lives of the individuals within my care in order to facilitate living life to the fullest in the most independent and dignified way possible. 

Finding ways to adapt and overcome situations, so that residents can still really enjoy all the things they love, has always been a great passion of mine; showcasing that you really can live well with dementia. 

Supporting the families of those in our care is also something that I feel very strongly about, and from the time of enquiry, through to moving in and beyond, I aim to support the families as much as the resident themselves. This can often be a huge change as their loved-one adapts to new surroundings, but I am well aware of how important reassurance and constant communication is for all involved. This is something that the Trinity Manor family are very good at as a whole, and I am so lucky that I get to share all my knowledge and work with such a fantastic team.

Paul Pippard

Deputy Manager

We are very proud to have Paul as the Deputy Manager here at Trinity Manor.

Having worked for Barchester Healthcare for over 10 years, Paul has quickly progressed up the ladder, working extremely hard to do so.

Paul has supported people who are living with physical and neurological conditions, including Dementia, constantly striving to ensure that everyone can live their lives to the very best of their ability. Paul has always had a passion for person-centred care, looking at each individual as a person and and not a number! To be able to look after someone else’s loved-one is a great privilege and also a massive responsibility.

Paul continues his studies throughout his career, involving NVQ’s in Health & Social Care, Staff Training & Development , mentoring and coaching and Leadership & Management.

Paul is local to the area, having lived in Yeovil all his life, which is where he still lives with his wife their a beautiful little boy who keeps them both on their toes!

Becky King

Admin Manager

Becky joined the incredible team at Trinity Manor back in December 2019, just as we opened the doors to our first residents. Coming from a background in events and hospitality administration, she was new to working in a care home setting, but enjoys the new challenges this brings and learns different things each day.

In 2015, Becky moved from the coast in South Devon to the stunning Dorset countryside, and feels very proud to have found such a passionate and dedicated team to work with.

Becky loves spending time with our residents and learning all about them, and although most of her days are spent at her desk, there is always time for a cup of tea with them in one of the lounges or a stroll around our sensory garden.

Lukasz Smykowski

Head Chef

Since Lukasz was a young boy, he was enthralled by some of the amazing food created by one of his neighbours who kindly took him under his wing and encouraged him as much as he could in all things culinary!  Lukasz spent 4 years working in hotels and restaurants gaining experience where he could, before training as a chef after his talent was spotted and nurtured by one of his seniors.  He has spent the last 11 years working in the care sector and he has definitely found his niche.  ‘I love cooking for the residents and I especially love the look on their faces when they enjoy the food I create for them.’  Lukasz has a particular passion for cooking Italian food, especially handmade pasta!

Laura McAllister

Laura joins the Trinity Manor family with a wealth of activities experience to draw from.  Having started in the care industry over 10 years ago, Laura started out doing a mixture of care as well as activities, but soon realised that her heart was more on the activities side.  Laura loves watching live theatre, especially musicals!  Her favourite activities are ones that include various forms of exercise, movement and music, but is also partial to a good quiz!  At home, Laura is a busy wife and Mother to 3 amazing children, as well as having 2 dogs called Roxy & Red and a gorgeous pet tortoise called Pickles, which our residents have already enjoyed meeting.  Laura's most recent crowning glory, was that she was a NAPA (National Association for Providers of Activities for Older People) award winner back in 2019, during the year of the arts and we are absolutely delighted that she is now part of the Trinity Manor team.

Joe Stratford

Activities Assistant

Joe originates from Barwick, near Yeovil and went to boarding school in Wiltshire, then spent the last 3 years in London where he studied for his degree in Drama at The Queen Mary University.

Prior to the pandemic Joe represented the University in four different sports: football, cricket, rugby & hockey.

In order to supplement his studies, Joe took a job in a care home in Slough, where he thoroughly enjoyed being around the residents. So much so, that as he reached the end of his time at University, he applied for the role here at Trinity Manor, after deciding to return to Somerset.

‘I love learning from the residents; they have all had such varied and interesting lives and I get intrigued by all the amazing tales that they come out with! Equally, I like to think that I can teach them about different aspects of being a young person in a modern world.’

Joe loves films, two of his favourites being Moulin Rouge and the Mission Impossible franchise.

During his spare time, Joe enjoys creating a variety of visual effects for short films, which we are all eager to learn more about.
