Meet The Manager

Kirsty is Registered manager at Evendine House Residential Home.

“I’m the Registered Manager of Evendine House, and I have been working within the care industry for around 30 years. I started here as a Group Head, so I already knew how the home is run prior to being appointed Registered Manager. In this role, I get the chance to be more hands on with running the home, and get to be more involved in the caregiving side of the home.

I am passionate about providing the best care and support to the people that we look after. I take great pleasure in assisting people in meeting their needs, and find the whole experience very rewarding when we get positive feedback for giving great care. The environment here is like one big family, it feels just like caring for my own grandparents!”

Since 2014, Evendine House Residential Home has been run by owners Geoff and Zo Butcher. Together with their family, they run several outstanding residential care homes that offer superlative care and services for a variety of needs. Their hard work, passion and dedication is reflected in all aspects of care at Evendine House. From the highly skilled and compassionate care team to the wonderful variety of delicious food and snacks – Geoff and Zo oversee it all.

We want to provide the best quality care for all residents at Evendine House.

Our Team
Diana Wise
Diana Wise
Team Leader

“I got into care after spending time caring for my parents, I realised I wanted to give something back, and caring was a great way to do that. My favourite part of the job is coming in every morning and seeing the smiles on residents’ faces, and how everyone at the home works together to get things done. Between us, nothing is too much trouble, because we all have the satisfaction and comfort of our residents at heart. An average day as Team Leader consists of organising the team, sorting out medication and doctor visits, helping other staff, some admin, and talking to residents.”

Fran Hallam
Fran Hallam
Care Assistant

“I finished college and straight away decided I’d like to go into nursing, so care seemed like a great starting point, but I loved it so much I stayed here. I love filling people with confidence and making them happy, and knowing that the residents here are satisfied. Evendine House has such a homely, family environment that’s so open, we all work as a team, and there are great opportunities for personal development – when I first started here I was shy, but through talking to residents, I feel like I’ve come out of my shell, and I’m so much more confident. My average day is filled with talking and laughter as I try to get the most out of my interactions with residents.”

Activities Co-ordinator

“I got into care after my experiences with my son, who has ASD and ADHD, which made me realise that I loved looking after and helping people in their day to day life. When I started at Evendine House, I only worked two days a week, but quickly realised that coordinating the activities was a really fulfilling job. I love talking to residents, especially when they tell me about their lives, and being part of making them smile with the activities that I arrange. I help around the home, in the kitchen, with maintenance, and even gardening, as well as organising the fun and games.”

Debbie Agius

Domestic Staff

“I worked here at Evendine for 5 years, then took a break to care for my husband. After this, I wanted to get back into work but didn’t want to care again straight away, so I applied for a role cleaning at the home, and got my current job. My favourite part of the job is seeing residents happy, making sure they have what they need, and knowing I can leave satisfied at the end of the day. My previous experience at Evendine has given me insider knowledge, and I have a great understanding of the inner workings of the home. My average day starts with a handover meeting to liaise with the night staff and make sure we’re all up to date. In this meeting we are told who the Resident of the Day is, and we all take extra care to make their day even more special.”

“I’m part of the kitchen team here at the home; my role here is mostly cooking, planning menus and ordering stock, but I also get involved in the activities we run, like making cupcakes for residents to decorate.”

Lydia Agius
Lydia Agius
Kitchen Assistant

“I started as a kitchen assistant here at Evendine, then made the move into care. My favourite part of working at the home is chatting to residents and finding out about their lives. I love my job because of the difference I make in people’s lives as well as the family atmosphere here in the home, we’re always smiling! An average day for me includes helping people with their day to day live, giving person-centred care, and making sure all needs are met, so all residents are helped as and when they need it. I love how the team works at Evendine, as a unit in harmony.”
