Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Westvale House has to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

Clement Asiedu


Hi, I'm Clement and I'm a Nurse here at Westvale House. I started here as a Care Home Assistant Practitioner in September 2022, and have since qualified and worked my way up to Nurse.

My role is to ensure all of our residents feel safe, secure and loved and that their families feel content in the knowledge their loved ones are being well cared for. As a team, we ensure we maintain a professional, relaxed and friendly environment, and we work hard to promote a homely atmosphere. I love working at Westvale House.

My name is Maria and I've been a Nurse here at Westvale since 2016. Being a nurse is a profession that never stops giving and everyday is different. Since I've been here for a number of years, I know the residents well and am able to care for them like they are family. I am proud to be a member of the Nurse team at Westvale.

Hi, my name is Denise and I joined Westvale House as Home Administrator in August 2023. 

It is my role to support the General Manager by maintaining the administration and financial systems within the home. I enjoy working as part of a company that values and is dedicated to its residents and their care. Every day is different from the last, and there's always something to look forward to.

Joanne Sherwood

Activities Coordinator

Hi, I'm Joanne and I'm the Activities Co-ordinator at Westvale House! I joined the team in December 2023 and absolutely love my role. Getting to spend time with our residents every day and getting to know each of them more and more, is such a privilege.

I get to create and tailor our activities to the preferences of each individual resident, making sure they're all doing things they'll absolutely love, and that brings me and the rest of the team so much joy. Making each of their days special is what I believe my job is all about.

Lesley Hardy

Head Chef

Hi, my name is Lesley and I'm Head Chef here at Westvale House. I started working here in 2023, and absolutely love my job. My passion is cooking and baking, and trying new ideas so I love that I get to explore and create new menus. Every day is different, and exploring the likes and wants of residents' food choices makes it so exciting. There's not a request we haven't had!

Outside of work, I love to walk my dog Cooper, who is just a year old Boxer. I also like to read, going to darts and rugby tournaments, and visiting my children and grandchildren who live over in Ireland.

Barry Hindley

Head of Maintenance

Hi, I'm Barry and I'm Head of Maintenance at Westvale House. I joined the team in 2019 as a Kitchen Assistant, and in November 2023 moved over to Head of Maintenance as this is where my passion is. I love being a helping hand in every corner of the home, and I'm always around for team to rely on.

Most of all I love the interaction and variety my role provides, and I feel privileged to be able to make a difference in people’s lives by ensuring their home is maintained and presented to a high standard.

Pam Gannon

Head of Housekeeping

Hi, I'm Pam and I am Head Housekeeper here at Westvale House. I have worked at Westvale for a number of years and then took the position as Head Housekeeper in 2021. Me and my team strive to keep the home looking its best, and ensure residents' rooms are always clean and tidy. I work hard to make sure our home always meets Barchester's high standards and create a warm and friendly atmosphere for residents, families, team and visitors.

Outside of work I love spending time with my two horses and enjoying downtime with my family.
