Sibongile Sawyer

General Manager

My name is Sibby Sawyer and l have been the General Manager for Wykeham House nursing care home since May 2014. 

It has been lovely getting to know the people that work and use our service.  My initial goal was to build relationships and improve engagement with staff, residents and their representatives, and this has helped me and the team that l work with identify and make the necessary improvements to our service.

The Care Quality Commission has rated Wykeham House as GOOD in the areas of Safe, Caring and Leadership.  This shows a lot of improvement that we have already been able to make within one year.  We look forward to making further improvements in the remaining two areas of Effective and Responsive.

The areas that l am most passionate about are making sure that people that use our service do not just live in our care home but have a truly fulfilling life in an environment that is stimulating, socially interactive and involved within the community that we are in.  In addition l want our team to see beyond the limitations presented by medical conditions such as dementia and other physical illnesses.  Our approach to care will be driven by a focus on residents’ abilities and on positive aspects of their behaviours and personalities.  

Outside of work, l am a wife and mum of two children and have several nieces.  I love being with my family and travelling together.  Over the last 2 years l have become a “dance mom” travelling to lovely locations in England one Sunday or two each month to take my two children to their dance competitions.  I have also taken up two new challenges this year – kick boxing and studying for an MSC in Project Management.
