Ana-Marie Barbu | Manager

I am a registered nurse, with 7 years experience in elderly care. I started as a carer and worked my way up to management. I recently obtained a level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management in Adult Care. I have been at Valerie Manor since October. I am proud to be part of such an amazing team and to be able to use my skills and knowledge to support our residents and their wellbeing. 

Emma Wood | Residential Manager

I have worked at Valerie Manor for 12 happy years! I love being part of the Valerie manor family! I enjoy providing the best possible care to our residents. I have been working in the care industry since I was 18 years old. My mother is a carer and I went to help her after school. My grandmother became ill and went to live in a residential care home where I visited her all the time, it was then I knew this was the job I wanted to do. I aim to give my all to the residents and staff at Valerie Manor and to develop my caring skills for the future.
