Jules Evanson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Jules and I am the General Manager here at Tyspane Care Home.

I am an experienced Manager in Residential/Nursing and Children and Young People sectors. My expertise is honed by over 30 years of hands-on experience, ranging from Operational Management to Strategic Management and corporate Development throughout the UK, including Northern Ireland.

I studied at Staffordshire Keele University where I gained a first in Human Science.

I hold further qualifications in, Management, Quality Assurance and Internal Verification for accredited training Organisations such as City and Guilds, and Pearson’s.

I am extremely passionate that all that work within the Health and social care sectors should have the skills and knowledge to promote good quality care and support by promoting equality and diversity to all those that require a level of support through health or care services to enable individuals to live and maintain their independence and dignity.

I moved back to Cornwall in 2017 from Lancashire where I lived for the past seventeen years.

Babs Spear

Physio Assistant

Babs was previously the Head of Activities & Physiotherapy here at Tyspane, but now works only as the Physio Assistant.

Her main interests are keeping fit and she spends a lot of her spare time as a fitness instructor, holding various classes around the local community.

In 2016, she was awarded the 'Devon Best Practice Award' for her flexicise class. She owns our three 'paper dogs' – her three Maltese – who deliver papers with her in the morning.

She is band 4 in physio and really tries to make residents' days fun; she very much believes in the 'if you don’t use it, you lose it' mentality, so she always encourages residents to participate, regardless of mobility concerns, because everyone is able to do something!
