Anthony Densley

Home Manager

Anthony Densley

I started working for Care UK in 2013 and I left after seven years progressing from working as a nurse to a Deputy Manager.

I returned in April 2021 as the Home Manager.

Prior to joining Care UK I worked as a nurse and I also served in the Army for 19 years where I first completed my training.

To do well as a Home Manager you need to be caring, understanding, approachable, a good listener, organiser, and communicator.

My favourite part of my job is talking to the residents and seeing them smile and being content in the home and seeing that my staff are happy in their working day.

My biggest career highlight to date has been passing my conversion course to qualify as a Registered General Nurse.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching football and I support Tottenham for my sins. I also enjoy socialising with friends and family at the pub or in a restaurant and travelling abroad.

Paul Brookes

I joined Care UK in 2021, my previous role was at Vecas in mechanical engineering.

To be successful in this role you must ‘measure twice and cut once’, have two pairs of hands and be a good listener.

The highlight every day when I come to work is seeing the residents at Haven Lodge, happy and smiling. It really does brighten up my day. I am most looking forward to improving the look of the rooms and getting to know all aspects of the care industry.

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


Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide.

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.


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.
