Neil Hardy

General Manager

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

I am a dedicated healthcare professional who has gained a wealth of experience and knowledge in providing care and support within the social care & health sector. I have attained a vast variety of qualifications since beginining my career, from Care Management and  Leadership to Teacher Training and Counselling, in addition to Assessors awards, Medication Management and assisting those living with Dementia, all of which have helped and assisted me in my delivery of care and understanding the needs of others.

I am very passionate about delivering the highest standards of care to residents. I aim to enrich the lives and experiences of those living within our home.

I share Barchester’s values and will endeavour to incorporate them in everything we do within our home.

I feel demonstrating a kind caring approach should be extended to all our colleagues, as this will benefit our residents the most in a warm and welcoming home. Making the time for people and listening to what they have to say demonstrates inclusion. Owning what we do and who we are plays a part in our success.

I like to ensure residents and colleagues have a smile on their face every day. I enjoy maintaining a positive and happy environment in the home.

Outside of work, I enjoy going for walks and exploring our countryside. I also like to spend time with my family and see them as much as possible. This time with them is very important to me.

A fact about me: I am the youngest of 14 siblings. I have 10 sisters and 3 brothers, all from the same parents and all single births. That is why family is very important to me.


Paul Pippard

Deputy Manager

Hello, my name is Paul, and I am proud to be the Deputy Manager here at Trinity Manor.

I have worked for Barchester Healthcare for over 10 years and in that time I have progressed from an apprentice right up to the position which I hold now.

I have supported people who are living with physical, and neurological conditions including Dementia. I strive to ensure that everyone can live their lives to the full. I have always had a passion for person centred care and by that I mean ensuring that everyone is treated as an individual and not as a number. Being able to look after someone else’s loved one is a great privilege and also a massive responsibility.

I have studied throughout my career, involving NVQ’s in Health & Social Care, Staff Training & Development , mentoring and coaching and Leadership & Management.

I am local to the area having lived in Yeovil all my life, I have a wife and a beautiful boy who I am sure you will all meet in the future.

Becky King

Admin Manager

I joined the incredible team at Trinity Manor in December 2019, just as we opened the doors to our first residents. Coming from a background in events and hospitality administration, I am new to working in a care home setting, but enjoy the new challenges this brings and learning every day.

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

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

We look forward to welcoming you to Trinity Manor and to show you around our beautiful home.

Carrie-Anne Williams

Senior Carer

I have been working in the care sector seince 2013, with a background in childcare and retail.

I joined Barchester Healthcare in November 2019, just before the opening of Trinity Manor. I felt very privileged to be part of the opening ceremony and to accommodate the smooth move-in of the founding residents.

My calm and caring nature has helped me to make residents at ease, as the move into a care home can be quite a challenging period when it comes to adapting to change and a new way of life.

What motivates me the most is making a difference to our residents' lives and enjoying their company, as they have vast life experience and memories to share.

Outstanding care equals happy residents, and that's what myself and our team strive for.

I’m married and have 2 adorable children. I have a love for travelling, especially to northern France, where I have visited many times.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family at Trinity Manor.
