Katherine Matthews

Home Manager

Katherine Matthews

Ive been a qualified Mental Health Nurse for 23 years, and before I joined the Perry Manor team in 2016 was the Deputy Hospital Director of a psychiatric hospital.

Having previously worked for Care UK in its mental health division, I respected the organisations ‘care first, business second ethos, so it was a natural choice when I wanted the challenge of running a residential care home.

I have a passion for person-centred care and I see how hard my team works every day to deliver impressively personalised care. I love walking around the home chatting to residents, relatives and colleagues. I also enjoy delivering colleague training. Every member of the team brings something different, and supporting them to achieve their potential is a large part of what I do.

Its been an exciting few years at Perry Manor. In late 2018 we were thrilled to receive an ‘outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission at our routine quality inspection. We were the first home in Worcester to achieve this rating.

Im also honoured to have won some recent awards: silver in the British Journal of Nursing Awards 2019 and Best Dementia Care Manager at the National Dementia Care Awards 2019.

Away from work, I like to unwind by doing yoga or some gardening. My two children keep me busy too.

Katrina Evans
Deputy Manager

I’ve worked for Care UK for over five years. I wanted to work for the organisation because I wanted to make a difference to other people’s lives. Care UK puts residents at the everything it does, which echoes my own commitment to care.

I started out as a care assistant and absolutely loved the work. I progressed to team leader, Unit Lead, Unit Manager and now Deputy Manager, which I’m incredibly proud of. Care UK offers superb training and I’ve been fortunate to complete its ‘Future Deputy Manager’ course.

Perry Manor is a wonderful home with a genuine family atmosphere. More than anything, I love supporting the residents and just chatting to them, learning about their lives and achievements.

We’re a very forward-looking and innovative care home in all aspects of care, and everything we do is always aimed at enhancing the care and quality of life of the people we care for.

Customer Relations Manager

I joined Perry Manor in 2022 having managed a small care home for over 9 years. After taking some time out to raise a family, I returned to work in a sales position but missed the care industry and how fulfilling it is as a career. This role at Perry Manor is ideal for me because of that reason.

My favourite part of my role is helping people to find the perfect place for their loved one to receive care. The team at Perry Manor are lovely, welcoming and friendly so it isn’t hard to see why Perry Manor is the best place to receive care.

In my personal time, I love spending time with family and friends. I love a day out with the kids, or hiking with friends. To unwind, I enjoy reading a good book with a nice glass of red!

Ruby Hudson
Lifestyle Lead

Before working at Perry Manor, I was a Musical Theatre and Drama Leader for after school clubs and theatre companies in Worcestershire. When the opportunity came up in Perry Manor’s Lifestyle team, the job seemed perfect for me.

Working in a care home was brand new to me, but I’ve since been trained in dementia and marketing. I’m currently also working towards becoming a Singing for the Brain Partner so I can run sessions at Perry Manor for the residents and the community.

The lifestyle team does so much more than people realise, and I feel that every part of the role is so important! From running activities to planning them, to the admin and documentation. Ultimately, the main priority is that each resident has meaningful engagement so they can live a fulfilling life at Perry Manor.

I love running any music-based activities in the home. I hold a regular choir, which is always so popular and engages many of the residents. As a member of the Lifestyle team, you need to bring fun and energy to the role and be a positive, smiling face for the residents. We have weekly plans and always have a routine to follow, but we do need to think on our feet and use our initiative too.

I’m proud of my amazing team who go above and beyond for the residents and their loved ones.

I’m a part of Powick Players outside of work, which is a company that performs pantomimes in Worcester. I also play netball and am a keen runner.

Tiffany Thompson
Lifestyle Lead

I joined Care UK (in 2016) because I was keen to work for an organisation that treats its people with respect and gives them opportunities to achieve and succeed in their roles. Before moving here, I was a healthcare assistant in other local care homes.

I have the best job because I get to have fun with the residents. We do so many different things: we get creative, we dance, play games – you name it! I also organise some of our events, including Care Home Open Day. 

Working here gives me all sorts of opportunities to try new things and to challenge myself. You never quite know what each day will bring! We have a very supportive management team in the home who help you to do anything you set your mind to. We have the attitude that anything is possible, both for residents and for colleagues.

Clinical Lead

I’m a Registered Nurse with training as a nurse practice supervisor and in nurse leadership and clinical training. I was keen to join Perry Manor because of the home’s good reputation and its rating with the CQC.

This role requires someone who is dedicated, passionate, resilient and efficient. I love the parts of my day when I’m interacting with residents or bouncing clinical ideas off my colleagues.

My role is about providing leadership in the home and building relationships with residents. I’m proud of the people I work with and the way the home celebrates diversity. I was also delighted to win GEM of the year and to be recognised for my work.

When I’m not working, I enjoy console gaming and travelling.

Head Chef

I’ve worked as a chef in the care home sector for a long time and have even won awards for what I do. I love cooking for people and being able to make a difference to an older person’s day. The residents appreciate the little touches – the way food is presented and served. It’s great to get their instant feedback.

I have been a part of a team launching a brand new care home which was both challenging and exciting at the same time!

Away from work I love to travel: I’ve a long list of places I want to see. I also enjoy spending time with family, including my two grandchildren. And, of course, I enjoy cooking – particularly finding new recipes to try.

Business Administrator

When I left university I was determined to work in an organisation where the people were passionate about the work they did. Care UK was just such a place, and I’ve worked here pretty much since I graduated in 2014. 

This role is a great combination: I enjoy working on the details, on rotas and planning, but I also really enjoy the interaction I get to have with residents, families and colleagues every day. There’s good balance and variety. There’s still lots to learn, but I was very proud to receive a regional award for ‘Going the Extra Mile’ last year.

Head Housekeeper

I previously worked at Perry Manor as a Team Leader, but I had to leave due to a foot injury. When that improved, I wanted to come back to work in the home. I was working as a night carer before being promoted to Head Housekeeper. Joining the management team at Perry Manor has been the biggest highlight of my career so far.

In this role, you need to be caring, passionate, reliable and work well in a team. I love working together with my amazing housekeeping team to keep the home clean and tidy. I believe running a good team is the most important part of my role, as their hard work and dedication makes my job easier.

Seeing a clean home and running an efficient laundry, as well as seeing my team happy, make me proud in my role.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, walking, looking after my three cats and spending time with my family.

Maintenance

I used to work in a maintenance role at Debenhams, as well as on the shop floor for over 30 years. When I wanted a different role and a chance to make a difference to other people’s lives, I saw this role and thought I’d apply. I haven’t looked back. 

I enjoy applying my experience and skills in a care home setting. I work well in a team and I’m always approachable. Getting used to all the necessary checks has probably been the biggest challenge!

By far the best part of my day is interacting with the residents as well as my colleagues here at Perry Manor. A recent challenge, which I enjoyed being involved with, has been launching our new Malvern suite, which provides specialist care for people with complex needs. 

In my free time I enjoy going to car boot sales and seeing what I can find. I’m also into photography and collecting vintage games consoles. If you have any you’re looking to get rid of, let me know!
