Our Team
Donna Milne-Barron
Donna Milne-Barron
Family Liaison Manager

I have worked for many years in health and social care and was thrilled to join the award winning home in Wareham.

I am the first point of call when families visit our wonderful home. I really understand how difficult and emotional it can be to move a loved one in to care, and it can be a hugely stressful and a very emotional time for all. My role is to guide and support the family with making that decision and I am always on hand, even if it’s for a cuppa and a chat. I live locally and I try to get involved with the local community whenever possible.

It is a privilege to work alongside our fabulous residents and it gives me so much pleasure, seeing how happy they all are. It really is a joy, to come to work!
