Meet The Manager

Gwen Agbeko is General Manager at Harper Fields.

Hi, my name is Gwen and I am the General Manager here at Harper Fields. Welcome to our website!

I am a very positive and resilient person and I am always looking for ways to improve both professional and personally. I have worked in care for quiet some time now and have lots of experience across different areas.

I joined Barchester as a Clinical Lead Nurse, then, within 4 months, I was promoted to Deputy Manager. It is my passion to support older people, especially those living with dementia, because no two days are the same. You have to put yourself in their world to be able to understand them.

I enjoy laughing, smiling, encouraging others and I am generally positive about life.

Activities Are So Important

There is always something to do here at Harper Fields and always someone to assist the residents in any activity they wish to take part in. We have entertainers come into the home to sing and play instruments on a weekly basis, as well as visits from PAT dogs, hairdressers, massage therapists and nail technicians to pamper those who live here. Residents' spiritual needs are taken into account at Harper Fields; we have regular services from the Catholic and Methodist church, in addition to the Church of England, and for our non-religious residents, we have a weekly calming and peaceful ‘mindfulness and meditation group,’ which is very popular, especially for those living with dementia. Residents often like to attend cinema evenings to watch their favourite films on the big screen (complete with sweets and popcorn), or develop new skills at our computer classes, where they can learn how to Skype their families in other countries. Our activities are tailored to suit the individual interests and capabilities of residents and our specialised equipment enables those we support to enjoy everything we have to offer.
