Hi, my name is Claire and I am the General Manager here at Wheatlands. I hope that you find what you are looking for on our website.
I have been working in the care sector for over ten years and have progressed through various roles before taking up the position of General Manager here at Wheatlands.
I am passionate about delivering high quality care and love my job entirely. I promote the Wheatlands philosophy: that we all work in the residents' home – and this is respected at all times. Person-centred care is my priority and identifying each resident as an individual and knowing their likes and dislikes is paramount to delivering the best possible care.
I have recently been studying for my NVQ Level 5 in Leadership and Management, and live locally in Bridgnorth. Outside of work, I spend time with my husband and two children. Life is busy and our motto is: 'live each day to the full'.Get in touch Meet my team
