Meet The Manager

Sharon Cordrey is The Home Manager at Oakdene Rest Home.

Hi, my name is Sharon and I am the Manager of Oakdene and have been working here for 5 years.

All of our residents have a voice and should be heard!

Sharon Cordrey

We at Sohal Healthcare understand that it is a difficult decision to enter residential care accommodation, for both the elderly and their relatives. To move into a community setting after years of independent living is a major change which many people approach with confused feelings and apprehension.

In all of our care homes we appreciate this, therefore if you or your relatives are in need of help now, or are planning for the future, we hope we can help in any way and do all we can to ensure the move is as easy and acceptable as possible.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

In which case our Activities Co-ordinator will spend time with them too.
