Richard Hill

Head of Maintenance

My name is Richard, but people call me Ricardo, Taffy or Welshman, among other named!

I have worked at Wykeham House for over 10 years. I was employed as the Head Chef for the first 5 years, however, since then, l have worked as the Head of Maintenance.

I love my role, as no two days are the same! One minute l am plumber, then next an electrician, then a painter & decorator – just to name a few of the things l do!

The residents are foremost in my thinking and I believe our elders should always be treated with dignity and politeness and, above all, respect. I also enjoy the banter you get with residents and it is nice to hear some of their life stories. 

As a member of the Barchester family, l hope to be here for many more years to come, as this is one of the most satisfying jobs l have ever had. I love it!
