Meet The Manager

Maggie Tomlin is Home Manager at Great Oaks.

Originally from Scotland, Maggie has extensive managerial experience in nursing, residential and dementia elderly care. Prior to her career in health care as a nurse and within management roles, she travelled widely with her husband who was in the Royal Air Force. They settled in Dorset due to their love of sailing.

After working in the health care sector for nearly 25 years, Maggie retired in 2017.  She came out of retirement to work for Encore Care Homes in 2020 and took the position as Home Manager at Great Oaks.

Maggie said: “Joining Encore was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.  I feel so proud of the team and what we have achieved.  I’ve always been passionate about providing excellent standards of care for older persons.  Ultimately, we want to look after our residents and provide them with the very best care so that they enjoy life and live well."

The Importance Of Meal Times

Healthy, appetising meals are such an important part of every day.

It’s imperative for to us to ensure that you not only have freshly cooked nutritional meals everyday but that the menus are continually varied. Our professional chefs strive to create appetising, good looking dishes that you enjoy. If your favourite dinner is homemade Cottage Pie (but it has to have a cheesy mash potato top, just like you used to make yourself), then our chefs will make it for you!

You are at home. So whether you fancy:

  • A special favourite dinner
  • To eat earlier or later
  • To eat in your room
  • Just a snack
  • Hot or cold food
  • A delicious piece of cake or pastry

…Then it is never too much trouble!

Great Oaks has private dining rooms, so that relatives and friends can have a family meal together with their loved one, just as they always have done. The relaxed communal dining rooms are bright and airy and a lovely space to socialise with other residents at dinner.

Activities Are So Important

No two days are the same at Great Oaks!

We have a dedicated Activities Coordinator to create fantastic and engaging weekly programmes of activities. These include daily activities that our care staff get involved with and enjoy with you, as well as outside entertainers that we invite into the home; such as singers, dancers, musicians and aerobic movement instructors.

We listen to residents and learn about them so that we can find thoughtful and imaginative ways to connect with every person. Whether you are an animal-lover, a keen gardener, a musician, or you enjoy arts and crafts. Maybe there is a past hobby you would like to do again, such as painting? Or perhaps you simply take pleasure in a nice cup of tea and a good chat…

We are devoted to bringing a smile to your face every day, whatever it takes.
