Hi, my name is Charlotte Preston. I joined Wadhurst Manor in January 2021 as the activity lead.
For the past year I have been working in the community as a carer. Prior to this I spent over 10 years working within the safari industry in South Africa. I had the pleasure of hosting and guiding many international clients, sharing the amazing African wildlife with them. I am also a mum of two busy twin girls and my hobbies include, horse riding, photography, reading, writing and travelling.
I am incredibly passionate about working with people and I am looking forward integrating my hospitality skills and caring knowledge into the day to day activities we do with the wonderful residents.
I have worked at Wadhurst Manor in many different roles since December 2011. Prior to this I worked as a nurse, exercise teacher and and preschool supervisor. I have 4 lovely children who are now grown up and travelling the world. My hobbies include visiting my children, singing, dancing, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, reading and amateur dramatics.I find enabling residents to remain active and engaged both physically and mentally is a wonderfully rewarding job. I particularly enjoy working on our memory lane units becoming immersed in their realities, enabling them to live their best lives by concentrating on what they can do not what they can't.
Hi, my name is Sarah and I recently joined Wadhurst Manor Care Home in December 2020.
Prior to this role I was an activity co-ordinator in a school. I have a real passion for encouraging people to live as independently as they can and remain as active as they can both mentally and physically. Being able to interact with both the residents and their families helps me get to know the residents well to provide the best person centred activities for them.
My hobbies include swimming, walking, gardening and reading. Having a young son has encouraged me to promote a healthy lifestyle which I am hoping to pass on to the residents.
