Meet The Manager

Steve Edgar is General Manager at Mulberry Court.

Hi, my name is Steve Edgar and I am the General Manager here at Mulberry Court. 

I qualified as a Registered Mental Nurse (RMN) in 1991 and I have spent most of my working life in the public sector. I worked for 20 years in a crisis intervention service, first as a counsellor and then as the manager.

In 2011 I accepted my first position in the independent sector, managing a small nursing home for adults with enduring mental health problems in Bradford, as well as providing arms-length management support to three related services in the Leeds and Bradford areas.

Since then I have gone on to manage an older person’s nursing and residential home in Bradford and, up until joining Barchester, I was the manager of a specialised dementia unit in Harrogate.

Our Team
Fiona Christie
Fiona Christie
Deputy Manager

I have been nursing for over 30 years and spent the first 20 years in the NHS in a busy intensive care unit. In 2010, I changed career direction and left the NHS to follow a new chapter in my nursing career. I joined Barchester in 2014 as a Night Nurse and then progressed to Unit Manager at Mulberry Court.

I am very happy to work for Barchester and I have a very good working relationship with my General Manager and nursing colleagues. I am very keen to adopt a whole team approach and am passionate about person-centred care.

Hello, my name is Ida and I am one of the Unit Managers here at Mulberry Court. I have worked here for many years and enjoy providing high quality nursing care for residents.

The unit I am responsible for is called ‘The Ridings’ and is on the ground floor of the building. I like to encourage team cooperation and good communication, and to create an atmosphere that feels welcoming for everybody.

I worked at Mulberry Court as a Bank Nurse for many years, whilst also having a career in the NHS. In 2017, I was invited to apply for the role of Unit Manager by the management team. I was successful in my application and took up the post in July of that year.

The unit I am responsible for is called ‘Regency Suite’ and is on the first floor of the building. I am very proud of the work I do at Mulberry Court, promoting good nursing care for residents and fostering a sense of team spirit and a welcoming atmosphere.

Activities Are So Important

The team at Mulberry Court works hard to support and encourage residents to participate in both group and individual activities, based around their preferences and lifestyle choices. We take time to get to know each person, sitting with them and listening to them speak about their lives, interests, and aspirations. We have access to our own minibus so outings to nearby places of interest are available; for example local museums, art galleries, garden centres, and public houses. We also host themed evenings, such as 'Quiz and Meal-in-a-Basket', 'The Races (Greyhounds, Horses)', and 'Takeaway and Movie Night' that we also encourage relatives to come too. We believe lifestyle choices and activities are one of the most important aspects of a care home, and it is essential that we help residents to have fulfilling and enjoyable lives.
