Deputy Manager

I will use my skills and knowledge to offer our residents help and support to live well, keep them active and involve them in community projects.

My role is to liaise with Families and future Residents considering a move to residential care.

I enjoy working at Speedwell Court as it is a lovely place and staff are very welcoming and friendly, I can honestly say that I love my job. We all take pride in completing our housekeeping duties to the highest standard and treat our residents and their home with respect.

I absolutely love organising events helping our residents enjoy their existing hobbies and trying new ones, it really is such a rewarding role.

News & stories from the house

What people say about Speedwell Court

Dad moved into Speedwell Court in July and was welcomed into a truly wonderful community. The care, kindness and attention to detail shown by the staff are quite exceptional. I have full confidence in the team to provide the best possible care for Dad.

Family member of a resident

I got a real good feeling from all the staff here when I first checked out several care homes for Mum. Mum has now been living there for six weeks and I couldn't have asked for more. She is superbly looked after and is settling in nicely.

Family member of a resident

My friend, who suffers from early-onset dementia, moved into Speedwell Court at the beginning of March after a long time of uncertainty and confusion for her. Before lockdown myself and her other friends visited her several times and could see her settling in comfortably. Knowing her to be so well cared for was an immense relief for us during this uncertain time.

Friend of a resident

Speedwell Court has been outstanding, although we have been unable to go and visit our loved ones since March 2020, over the past three months we have had video calls and regular updates from the home.
