The team and I consider it a huge privilege to care for older people and are proud that their families trust us to care for them.

This is a lovely friendly and happy home, with a great family atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you here soon.

Customer Relations Manager
Before working here at Ferndown Manor I recruited temporary healthcare staff for different settings.

Before working here at Ferndown Manor I recruited temporary healthcare staff for different settings. I felt I wanted to use my relationship building skills in a care setting, so here I am. I also have personal experience of finding long term care for a loved one. I know how hard it is and what an emotional experience it can be.

I really enjoy getting to know colleagues and meeting new people. I’m looking forward to being part of the growing team at Ferndown Manor, building our community and meeting and exceeding the expectations of residents and their families.

After seeing the lease of life my own grandmother found when she moved into a care home, I look forward to being able to share the same sense of joy to those living at Ferndown Manor.

After seeing the lease of life my own grandmother found when she moved into a care home, I look forward to being able to share the same sense of joy to those living at Ferndown Manor. I have worked in the opening of a kitchen as part of a new build before, which has given me valuable experience. I am committed to delivering highest standards of meals for residents.

Paige Winders
Business Administrator
Before joining the Ferndown Manor team I was an administrator in the NHS.

Before joining the Ferndown Manor team I was an administrator in the NHS. I’ve also worked in domiciliary care. I’d heard about Care UK’s reputation for care and for the great opportunities it offers people who are committed to a career in care, so when this role came up I was keen to apply.

While all the usual administration skills are useful in my role, it’s vital that you have a passion for helping people, and for the care of older people. The whole team at Ferndown Manor is committed to supporting residents to enjoy every minute of every day, and that’s the same for me as it is for a carer or member of the lifestyle team.

I’m a keen gym-goer, and try to get there every day after work. Energy is something we all share at Ferndown Manor – we’re extremely motivated to deliver great care and customer service and we never tire of seeing the superb things relatives say about the home on carehome.co.uk! 

Our experienced teams

Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.

Carers

Our hardworking teams always keep residents and their families at the heart of the care they provide. We work with you to shape the care your loved one receives, the food they’re served, the activities and experiences they want to do – even the ways they prefer to keep in touch with their friends and family. 

Nurses

The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.

Lifestyle

Our dedicated lifestyle teams work hard to organise a range of activities and events at our home. From gardening and baking to quizzes, music sessions and even live entertainment. Above all, we get to know your loved one to make sure our activities are tailored to suit their interests and hobbies.

Home support roles

From catering to maintenance, housekeeping to administration, our home support teams play a crucial part in ensuring residents enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.


All our teams get to know residents to ensure they provide a service that’s designed around their unique needs and tastes. 

Infection control

Each of our homes have a trained Infection Control and Prevention Champion – they are responsible for carrying out daily infection control audit and ensuring cleaning protocols are meticulously applied.
