Care Team

Manager Zoë Bates and Office Manager Alan Fry and their dedicated team of registered nurses and carers provide the everyday nursing and care for our residents.

Deputy manager Alison Barrett has brought a wealth of experience from the NHS as a ward sister and brings her depth of knowledge, skills and personality to the team. We are also fortunate to be supported by Emma Wood, our head of Residential Care with many years of caring experience at Valerie Manor. Ian Goldsmith, an experienced carer is now our Care Supervisor and undertakes staff induction and supervision with staff.

Our senior care team members are either NVQ qualified or working towards their NVQ (Care) level 2 and 3 qualifications.

There is a registered nurse on duty 24hrs a day and Zoë continues to live on site to provide that little bit of extra support.

We are privileged to have a waiting list of staff to work at Valerie Manor but still encourage people to send in their CV for us to keep on file should an opportunity arise. We are always looking for registered nurses and care assistants to join our pool of bank staff to call upon should the need arise.
