Trusted to care

A closely-knit team of managers, carers, nurses and support colleagues – and each of us is dedicated to your loved one’s care, health and wellbeing.

Michele Lloyd has been manager of Kings Court since 2009. She explains why she enjoys working with older people and what makes Kings Court so special.

I started working in care home management in 1999, following a career as a nurse in care homes and in the Royal Navy. I chose to specialise in working with older people because I enjoy it so much - I like spending time with older people and talking to them about their lifetime experiences. I feel that older people have earned the right to be looked after well and it’s an honour to be able to care for them and to give them positive, life-enhancing experiences.

The thing I like most about Kings Court is the friendly atmosphere we have here. Our team have really strong, personal relationships with the residents. I think it helps that everyone in our team is from the local area, so we have a lot in common with residents who’ve also grown up and worked around here. Barnard Castle is still a thriving farming community and many of our carers are also farmers.
