Meet The Manager

Mark Shockledge is General Manager at Netley Court.

Netley Court is a wonderful place to live and work, and I am delighted to be in a position to make a difference to people’s lives. I am passionate about providing the very best care to all of our residents and feel that it is a real privilege to be entrusted to care for your loved ones.

I count myself fortunate to have gained so much valuable experience. My career in care started many years ago and since the age of 16 I have met, cared for and worked with some amazing people who have taught me so much.

In my spare time I enjoy being active at the gym, dining out, going to the theatre, and spending time with my family and friends up north.

I feel honoured to be the Home Admissions Adviser for Netley Court; I love helping new people and families every day. My job is to introduce potential new residents to our home and to ensure that Netley Court can provide exactly the right level of individual care they need and deserve.

It is my privilege to provide the home and residents with administrative support on a daily basis.

As a certified bookkeeper and with over 35 years of experience providing administrative support, I have worked in many sectors including finance, private healthcare and residential care, residential care being my favourite. 

With three adult children, two dogs, a cat and a husband, I’m kept busy for most of my free time.

Receptionist & Administrative Assistant

I answer and resolve phone calls and assist the Administrator with certain HR duties, always with a smile and a cheerful disposition. It is an important factor; as a receptionist as I am often the first employee the public have contact with.

Prior to working in a care environment I worked in accounts for many years. Five years ago I decided on a change of career and became a Care Assistant, eventually moving to Netley Court in my current role 18 months ago. I can honestly say it is a pleasure to work in this beautiful environment with the staff and residents all feeling like one large family.

I have six grandchildren and three dogs so I’m kept very busy.

I love my position here and truly feel that residents and staff become like a family - a wonderful place to live and work.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We wouldn’t call our food restaurant standard because we aim for something more personal. At Cinnamon we believe in delicious, home-cooked food, attentive service and understanding what each resident enjoys. Every meal we serve has to be something we’d be proud to present to our nearest and dearest at a special family gathering.

Our restaurant menu evolves with the changing seasons and tastes of our residents who help to plan each meal by offering our chefs feedback and ideas. From the quality of the fresh, locally sourced ingredients and nutritional balance to the attractive presentation, we’re there to listen and make sure that each meal feels like something special, not an afterthought.

Relax and enjoy yourself in our sociable residents’ dining rooms or take an active part preparing food in our life skill kitchens. Enjoy a healthy snack in the comfort of your en-suite room. Catch up with guests or fellow residents over a tasty treat in our comfortable lounges and cheery cafés. And if you’re hungry later on, there’s always a selection of fruit, snacks and hot and cold drinks to enjoy.

Activities Are So Important

Life is always fun at Netley Court. Residents can join in with a host of activities from Wednesday Wallflowers and Tiffin Tuesday to Steady and Strong exercise classes.

Having our own transport opens up opportunities for days out to the many local attractions in and around the quaint village of Netley, with its traditional shops, tea rooms and rows of colourful terraces that run across the shore. Whether it’s a few lengths in the local swimming pool, a visit to Royal Victoria Park, or a quiet stroll around Netley Abbey and the adjoining Yacht Club, every single outing – spontaneous or planned – is arranged to keep our residents feeling stimulated, connected and happy.

There’s always something different happening here at Netley Court – a visit from the Longdown Farm animals, a mother and baby group spending time with our residents, or one of our countless Dementia Awareness events. Fun and friendship can always be found in equal measure, for example our Gentlemen’s Club, which grows in popularity every month as residents and locals gather to share in good wine and sherry over a delicious two-course meal.
