Meet our friendly care team

The dedicated and experienced team at Hadrian House will provide your loved one with care that’s completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes.

Jane Fox

Home Manager

I joined Care UK in 2014 as I knew it was a great company to work for.

It was rapidly becoming the number one care provider in the UK (which it’s subsequently achieved) and I wanted to be on board!

I’m an experienced home manager and have also worked as an operational manager in a housing association. I think to be a success in this role you need to be a combination of things: kind and caring, as well as organised, driven and innovative. 

I love working at Hadrian House. We have a wonderful team here, who I’m hugely proud of, and I enjoy all day every day. We’re working hard to achieve our goals, and evidencing the great care we provide, so we’re ready to match – or hopefully enhance – our rating at our next CQC inspection. 

Sharon Henderson
Senior Team Leader

Before joining Hadrian House in 2007, I was a senior care assistant.

This was a new-build care home at the time and I decided to apply to join. Here I am all these years later!

I love what I do, and I particularly enjoy the afternoons when we spend some social time with residents. Getting to know people as individuals is vital to providing them with the best care, so this is a great chance to learn something new about them. It’s also nice to relax and have a laugh with the people we care for. 

One of the highlights of my time here was being nominated for ‘team leader of the year’ as part of the annual awards. Quality is everything, and, looking ahead, we’re all determined to upgrade our CQC rating from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’ at our next inspection. 

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 individuals 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 individuals enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.

All our teams get to know each person they care for 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.
