Meet the team

The dedicated and experienced team at Ferndown Manor will provide your loved one with care that is completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes. 


I love leading a team and like nothing better than rolling up my sleeves and getting involved. That might be dancing at activities or helping out the teams at times of pressure and assisting a resident to eat or with personal care. I love action planning with the team to bring about change and improve standards. I like to support my team, consult and involve them as we are a family.

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Ferndown Manor care home.

I would like to offer a personal thank you to you and your staff for the kindness that Alan received while in your care. He was always treated with respect and good humour which we appreciated very much. It has been such a difficult time for all of you and I hope you will soon enjoy a further easing of restrictions.

Beryl, June 2021

It’s been wonderful to see Aunty Audrey today and great to meet some of you we haven’t had a chance to meet before. As always, we’re leaving feeling very reassured about the care she is receiving and the love and kindness you all show her. A very big thank you from us for all you do. It was a difficult decision we had to make almost 4 years ago but we’ve never doubted we made the right one!

Carole and Mike - relatives of a resident, May 2021

Every time we have visited it has been outstanding. It is a beautiful building, and the hygiene and cleanliness is outstanding. We have never come across anything that has given us cause for concern.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

With such different circumstances being over 300 miles away, what we like is the excellent communication that they have which has improved over the last 8 months since the new manager was appointed. The communication has really improved. Even in normal circumstances we cannot visit that much but we feel we are kept in the loop.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

We get regular phone calls regarding her care and changes in her condition. We are kept up to date and feel staff are knowledgeable, professional, and concerned.
