Michele Lloyd

Home Manager

Michele Lloyd

Michele Lloyd has been manager of Kings Court since 2009.

I started working in care home management in 1999, following a career as a nurse in care homes and in the Royal Navy. I chose to specialise in working with older people because I enjoy it so much - I like spending time with older people and talking to them about their lifetime experiences. I feel that older people have earned the right to be looked after well and it’s an honour to be able to care for them and to give them positive, life-enhancing experiences.

The thing I like most about Kings Court is the friendly atmosphere we have here. Our team have really strong, personal relationships with the residents. I think it helps that everyone in our team is from the local area, so we have a lot in common with residents who’ve also grown up and worked around here. Barnard Castle is still a thriving farming community and many of our carers are also farmers.

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.
