Meet The Manager

Nicola Delves is Registered Manager at Harpwood Care Home.

I have worked in care since 2010 initially as a domiciliary carer, eventually progressing to Registered Manager, I absolutely love my job, my residents, staff and the home and consider myself very privileged to be part of the Harpwood family. 

I have a particular interest in the use of technology to improve resident experience and can talk for hours about the subject, outside of my role I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening and taking care of my menagerie of pets.
