Meet our friendly care team

It is the people who make our home a truly happy and caring one. At Anning House, our experienced team of dedicated professionals all undergo our own in-depth training programme. The whole team works to make sure that residents' needs are at the heart of everything they do and that personalised care is provided.

Michelle Harwood

General Manager

Michelle Harwood

I trained and qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse but have a lot of experience of working in older people’s care.

I think someone in my role should be passionate about delivering great care, and about understanding each resident’s needs, as well as those of the home team. That way you can ensure harmony in the home. A strong and supportive management team is a must too.

One of my favourite parts of the day is when I have the chance to chat to the residents as well as the team. As well as having a laugh and learning a little more about people, I can check that everyone has everything they need to have a good day.

I’m very proud of the team we have here at Anning House, and I’m looking forward to working with them to find new ways to enhance the care we provide, and to make the home feel like a genuine family home.

Esther Sheppard
Home Admissions Advisor

Working here is not just a job for me.

Being able to help residents transition from home or hospital into a care home environment and into the next phase of their life is a huge responsibility and extremely rewarding. I have been working here since September 2015 and I love being able to bring the home to more families.

Sharon Hoskins
Administration Manager

I started working here in August 2013 I was employed first as one of the reception team and was then promoted to Administration Manager in January 2019.

I am responsible for the recruitment of all team members, payroll, finance support, billing, and all aspects of administration. I have a team that work below me which includes three receptionists. I love helping people and think the little things make a big difference. It is a pleasure to work with the team here.
