Meet our friendly care team

It is the people who make our home a truly happy and caring one, and at Salisbury Manor our experienced team of dedicated professionals all undergo our own in-depth training programme. The whole team works to make sure that residents' needs are at the heart of everything they do and that personalised care is provided.

Mercy Mautsi

General Manager

Mercy Mautsi

I’ve worked in the care sector for over twenty years, and I’ve held most roles in residential, learning disability and nursing settings.

For the last seven years I’ve been a General Manager. I’m passionate about delivering quality care and providing excellent care to residents and their families is my priority.

I’m very excited about leading the team here at Salisbury Manor. Care UK homes put residents at the heart of everything they do, and every member of the team here is committed to residents health and wellbeing. I love that ethos, it’s a large part of what attracted me to this role.

I see it as a privilege to be able to care for older people, and to support colleagues to enhance their skills and grow their career. If I can make a positive difference to someone’s life – whether it’s making a resident smile, giving a relative the reassurance they need, or mentoring a young team member.

Skye Williams
Deputy Manager

I studied Adult Nursing at Bournemouth University and joined Salisbury Manor as a registered nurse before progressing to become Deputy Manager.

There’s plenty that keeps me busy in my role. I love supporting the residents and listening to their stories, doing admin, and liaising with the team and ensuring they have everything they need to deliver the best care. I’m very proud of the team here at Salisbury Manor. Each colleague works with compassion and love for the residents.

Mealtimes are the best times of the day here at our Salisbury care home. Residents are socialising and enjoying the delicious food served up by our talented catering team. It’s lovely to see the smiles and interactions between residents and the team at these times.

My husband is in the army, so, outside of work, family time is very precious as he’s often away on duties. I also enjoy reading and getting lost in a book.

Richard Amey
Head Chef

I’ve been a qualified chef for nearly four decades.

I used to be Head Chef in a private ecumenical college in the cathedral close in Salisbury, catering for a range of different functions. When I wanted a new challenge, I decided to join Salisbury Manor. It had an excellent reputation in the city and surrounding area.

I have some Italian ancestry, so Mediterranean food is one of my passions. I enjoy creating interesting and enjoyable menus for all the residents, especially those who need a specialist diet. I think success in this role is all about being interested in the residents and their taste preferences, as well as in their life experiences. That way you can create dishes that truly delight them.

I think care sector catering is a fascinating area to work in, and Care UK is leading the way in this with its ‘dining with dignity’ approach. We’re very keen on this approach at Salisbury Manor with support from the enthusiastic and highly professional team at the home.

Carol Brewster
Home Admissions Advisor

I am the Home Admissions Advisor and feel very lucky and privileged to be part of this amazing award winning team.

I am a qualified and registered nurse and have a background in the care sector. I am passionate about making each resident's day-to-day experience the best it can be. Every day it is a joy to meet residents and their families and being part of the journey in making a decision about moving to a place that is everything they could wish for in a home.

Paula McDonald
Head Housekeeper

I have worked here since 2018 as the Head Housekeeper.

I have many years' experience in similar roles in the care sector and as a carer in the community. I know the importance of looking after and supporting older people and I am proud to make sure that at all times, values and standards are always maintained to the highest level. It's important that all the lovely residents have a beautiful clean home to live in. I have taken on additional responsibilities as the infection control champion and train the team here to ensure that all residents are protected from infections to the best of our abilities, which has been very interesting and rewarding. I will always give 100% when at work to ensure that the residents have the best home to live in at all times. It's a beautiful home with amazing colleagues and a great place to work.

Marie Coleman
Receptionist

I joined the home in 2019 as a Senior Carer before moving into the role of Receptionist which I am thoroughly enjoying.

I am often the first person that visitors meet and it is a pleasure to put them at ease and make them welcome in our lovely home.
