Home Manager

Michaela O’Brien

Ive always worked in care: I started as a care assistant at the age of 18 and have worked my way up.

I first began managing care homes in 2012, and I joined Care UK in 2016.

Even though Ive worked in care for a long time, I still enjoy seeing the difference we make to residents lives. And I love any chance I get to spend time with the residents. The atmosphere at Riverside is a little different to what youll experience in other Care UK homes because we care for younger and older people here. It makes every day interesting. For example, helping younger people to enjoy fulfilling lives is very much focused on helping them to get out and about to see bands or socialise. 

Since I joined Riverside, Ive been working hard with the team to enhance different aspects of care and everyday life for residents. Working with the lifestyle team, weve been focusing on making residents wishes come true. Some people have wanted a personal shopping trip, while others have wanted to go to music concerts – each wish is unique and great to fulfil. 

Outside of work Im kept busy by my three young children, so I dont get much time to myself. But we do like to go out for family meals, which I look forward to.

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.
