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 for over 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

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.

I look forward to meeting you all soon!

Rebekah Goddard

Home Services Advisor

I have worked in care since 2012, and I have never felt more fulfilled in my life, knowing that I can really make a difference to someone’s life.

I am passionate about my role and I am driven by helping others. Working with people and knowing that you can make a positive difference is such an amazing feeling. Getting to know families and friends and ensuring that they feel supported as a loved one moves into a home, is extremely important to me. This is something that I feel is really important and an integral part of the journey.

My own recent life experiences have helped me to ensure that I truly understand things from the family’s perspective, making me well-equipped for this job. Nothing gives me more job satisfaction than a resident and their friends and family with big smiles!

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.

Scott Newton

Activities Coordinator

From an early age, helping and caring for those in my local community has been something that I have truly enjoyed, and once I left school, it was clear which direction my career would take me. 

I have over 15 years’ experience in health and social care, having worked in hospitals in emergency medicine, then for the Crisis Home Response Team, where I learnt a lot about mental health issues. Later I moved on to work in general community medicine, which gave me the opportunity to build up rapports with those for whom I cared; enabling their independence was something that made me feel like I was making a positive impact on their lives. 

I started at Trinity Manor in 2020, and being able to take on this new role as Activities Organiser has allowed me to share my passions and hobbies with others in the home. 

Keeping fit (in particular football & table tennis) has always been important to me, and I can often be seen with my headband and tracksuit on in the home, encouraging our residents to get moving in whatever way they can. I have also been involved in local community variety shows and I love to share my experiences with them, especially if it makes them laugh!

Georgina O'Keefe

Senior Carer

I began working for Barchester as a Carer in 2018 in our sister home, West Abbey, in Yeovil. There, I provided person-centered care for residents of varying needs, from residential and dementia support to end of life care.

In November 2019, I transferred over to Trinity Manor, where I was able to be part of the grand opening celebrations of this beautiful home and have progressed to become a Senior Carer.

I am now involved in person-centered care planning, care delivery and management of medications.

I always go above and beyond for residents at Trinity Manor.

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.
