Miranda Morgan

Home Manager

I believe that being a Home Manager is about creating a warm environment, not only for residents but also for those who work in the home or visit.

I joined Care UK because I appreciate their culture and ethos of supporting residents to live fulfilling lives.

Ensuring compliance is at the forefront of my work at Larkland House is an important part of my role, but I also like to be involved in the day-to-day lives of the residents and team. Seeing their smiling faces gives me a big sense of achievement.

If the team are happy, this reflects to the residents. I’m proud to work with incredible people who want to make a difference in people’s lives. It’s fantastic when this hard work is recognised. In a previous role, I won awards for Manager of the Year and Dementia Team of the Year.

Outside of work, I love to travel with my husband. Travelling is very important to us. Family is equally important, and any spare time is spent with my granddaughter.

Kate Bull
Deputy Manager

I qualified as a General Adult Nurse in Poland in June 2014, and soon after that I came to the UK.

In 2016, I achieved my Level 5 qualification in leadership and management, and in 2017 I started working at Care UK.

To be a good Deputy Manager, you must be a good listener. You need to be passionate about the job and caring towards residents and team members. You also need to be a leader.

Making residents and colleagues smile is my favourite part of the working day. I love knowing that I’m making a difference in their lives.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time away with my family to relax and unwind.

Annie Harcup
Lifestyle Coordinator

I’ve worked in the care sector since I was 16, so it’s what I know.

I started working for Care UK when my children were small and I worked as a carer on night shifts. As my children got older I was able to progress and take on more work.

The greatest buzz I get from this job is when an activity goes really well and residents ask to do it again. Christmas is always a busy time, with lots to organise, and we do lots of themed days and have plenty of parties. The fun residents have makes all the work worthwhile. If you like a role where you never know what each day is going to bring, this is the perfect job!

Natasha Spence
Lifestyle Coordinator

When so much was put on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic, I felt I had to take on a rewarding role where I could help people, and put my music and performance knowledge to good use.

I have various strings to my bow: I co-host a music show on TV each Monday evening, I perform in an Irish music band and I work in a West End theatre box office part time. I also love Country and Western music, and a little while ago I got to tour and sing in Alabama and Nashville.

I love so much of my role as Lifestyle Coordinator at Larkland House, including chatting and reminiscing with residents, and singing with them. Music is a great healer and can bring people together in a unique way. I look forward to making a difference to residents’ day every day here at the home. It’s amazing to receive a ‘thank you’ from a person when you’ve spent time with them, getting to know them.

Alison Robertson
Lifestyle Coordinator

I’ve always wanted to help people, so being a part of Care UK gives me the chance to use my skills to help others every day.

I love adventure, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have travelled the world. However, there’s always more to see, so I still try to visit new places when I can.

Cooking is something that helps me unwind, and I’m also a keen dancer – I do salsa and belly dancing! One of my career highlights was opening my very own arts and crafts shop, and it’s great to see residents sharing my creativity and getting involved in all the different activities.

You need to have plenty of patience, kindness, and a happy demeanour to be brilliant at my job. Each morning I wake up looking forward to the day, to making a small difference, and to seeing residents smile.

Eryk Nawala
Head Chef

I’ve worked as a Head Chef for many years in Poland and the UK.

My aim is always to get to know residents, their likes and dislikes, and to gain their feedback so I can create varied, high quality dishes that they’ll love. The more information they can give me, the better.

I’m often out on the floor at mealtimes, chatting to residents, and I’m involved in each resident’s regular care review. That’s my opportunity to find out what they’d like to see more of on the menu. I always act quickly to make changes, so residents can enjoy healthy home-cooked meals tailored to their needs and tastes.

In my spare time I enjoy playing football with my sons. I also have a green belt in karate!

Claudia Kalmar
Team Leader and Infection Prevention and Control Champion

I’m a team leader at Larkland House as well as the home’s infection control and prevention champion.

In my latter role I support the team to reduce the risks of infection to residents, relatives, visitors and colleagues by helping to create and maintain an environment that supports safe and clean care.

I’ve had specialist training in IPC so that I can act as a role model for best IPC practice at all times, ensuring regulatory, legal and standards requirements are being met. I work closely with the management team at Larkland House as well as the Care UK IPC leads.

I’ve worked for Care UK since 2015. I took on this IPC champion role in addition to my team leader duties as I wanted to stretch myself, learn new things and support residents, colleagues, the home and Care UK to help combat Covid-19. I’ve been able to start studying for an NVQ level 5 and to work alongside the management team, which have both been great opportunities.

Our experienced teams

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. 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. 


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.

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.
