Lindsey Quegan

Home Manager

Lindsey Quegan

I chose to join Care UK as we both share a passion for delivering quality care that is individualized, fulfilling, and founded upon teamwork.

This aligns our visions and motivation for continued improvement and making a difference to the forefront of residential care services.

Before joining Care UK, I ran a care home for a smaller care provider and I’m proud to have reshaped the culture in the home by recruiting many new team members which helped turn the underperforming service into one rated ‘good’ by the CQC.  I am a registered Nurse and I spent nearly a decade working in Melbourne, Australia.

My favourite part of my working day is engaging with both staff and residents, observing fun activities that are meaningful to residents and observing dignity in care. I also enjoy making new relationships with key stakeholders and sharing ideas to promote best care and learning in practice.

Here at Oxbow Manor, I’m looking forward to creating an open culture, where everyone’s involved in decision-making and can feel they can come and talk to me. I want to be out on the floor as often as possible, getting to know residents and supporting the team. I also can’t wait to introduce residents to Coconut, my excitable chihuahua.

Debra Blatchford
Customer Relations Manager

I’ve worked in a sales environment for 30 years and have spent some time working in the retirement sector.

When I saw this role advertised, I researched Care UK and was impressed by the organization's strong and clear values. Care UK puts residents and their families first in everything, and that echoed my own values. I knew this was an organization I wanted to work for.

I have an elderly mother so I know how important it is to families that a home offers the highest quality care for their older loved one. I always put myself in the position of ‘what would I want for my mum’ when I’m liaising with families. It’s vital that they can trust us to care.

Oxbow Manor is a brand new home, so our team has a wonderful opportunity to create a superb care home from scratch. We can set the standard from the outset, and I, for one, can’t wait to make Oxbow Manor the ‘go to’ care home for families in Shrewsbury.

Away from work, I enjoy horse-riding, gardening, baking and walking my two tiny dogs! I also love planning holidays and weekends away and, of course, going on them!

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. 

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.
