Hi, my name is Geoffrey, and I am the General Manager here at West Oak Care Home.
I have personally worked in the care sector for over twenty years, initially starting in the mental health & learning disability field, managing & commissioning homes throughout Berkshire & Wiltshire. I then moved on to elderly care in the role of Training Manager, and progressed to running sixty-six bed units in Oxford, Hampshire & Berkshire.
I love working with a very professional team of Nurses, Carers & ancillary staff, who take great pride in their work. It is my goal to ensure that we are delivering a high standard of person-centred care to those we support. West Oak has strong links with the community, which enables residents to not only to engage in, but also be active in local projects.
