Lili Cocue

General Manager

Hi, my name is Lili and I am the General Manager here at Wilsmere House Care Centre. Welcome to our website!

I first joined Barchester as a carer in 2004. I have been in various managerial positions since 2010, and have been a General Manager at Wilsmere from June 2015.

As a General Manager, my main duty is to guarantee that all residents receive the best care possible. I ensure that resident’s choices are respected and all of their needs met.

I work closely with my highly trained and talented team in order to make sure all residents is happy, and that they continue to live life on their terms, in the best possible environment. We maintain our high standards, which have been reflected in our recent CQC report and ratings.

Alphy George

Activities Coordinator

I originally started working with Barchester from 2018.  My favorite part of the job is getting to know the specific interests of the individual residents living here and helping them continue them whilst living at Wilsmere House.

I get to learn something new and the resident gets to continue doing something they really love. It's a great feeling to know you can make such a difference to someone's day.
