Rachael Woodward

Home Manager

Rachael Woodward

I previously worked in interim turnaround roles before leaving to join Care UK in 2021.

Since I began my career in care a lot has changed. However, I wanted to work with an organisation that delivers its homes with the best service and supports the people we provide care for emotionally, socially and physically. Mill View reflects these values and I am so happy that this is where I belong and I can support my team and make it a great place for people to live.

My role keeps me very busy but I love to wander around the home, chat to residents and relatives and participate in the odd activity, including my favourite Zumba classes.

Sarah Barrett
Deputy Manager
I’ve worked in care for nearly two decades.

I’ve worked in care for nearly two decades. I started out as a care assistant, but have been in management roles for nearly ten years. I joined Mill View because I was keen to find a new challenge. I’d been hearing a lot about the company and I liked the look and feel of Mill View when I first looked around.

In my role it’s important to listen and support your team, residents and family members. You need to be proactive and think outside the box. I enjoy helping the team to progress in their careers while ensuring that they’re delivering the best quality care. Above all, I believe that Mill View is going great things and has huge potential thanks to our brilliant, hard-working team.

Before working for Care UK, I was a private chef for a luxury travel company and before that I was a sous chef in a fine dining restaurant. As head chef I try to balance the team’s rotas and workload to keep everything fair and the kitchen a happy working space. My favourite part of working at Mill View is being able to create fun and fresh menus for the people we provide care for.

I am a chef at heart and love to cook up tasty food for people to enjoy. At home I still like to cook in a relaxed environment to continue to further my skills. When not cooking or eating I also play the saxophone.

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.
