Meet The Manager

Pat Laing is Manager at Sharnbrook House.

Hello, my name is Pat Laing and it is a great honour for me to be the manager of Sharnbrook House.

The team at Sharnbrook House ensure they see the residents as individuals. Staff encourage the residents to continue to maintain and enjoy their pastimes to the full.

Beautiful home and grounds

Sharnbrook House is a 19th century period building. It benefits from idyllic grounds with terraced gardens and pathways leading to its own lake. The home benefits from being in the hub of the village with all the local amenities within a short walking distance.

Sharnbrook House has always been part of the local community. All the staff team and volunteers continue to embrace the village spirit.

I pride myself on always making myself available to all who come into contact with the home. I will always find the time to sit and discuss any issues that may arise or just have a chat over a cup of tea.

Pat Laing

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.
