Meet The Manager

Terri-Ann Weatherall is Home Manager at The Glen.

I am a highly experienced and motivated healthcare professional with a proven track record of providing excellent care and support. I started working at The Glen Care Home in 1999 as a care assistant and have worked my way up to a Home Manager through various roles within the home.

We have a fantastic team here at The Glen and for us its ensuring our residents are happy and cared for with the utmost respect and dignity they deserve. I use my  knowledge of the local  area to arrange events and activities with nearby schools and clubs and am always keen to involve the local community in life at The Glen.

There’s no better feeling than making a difference to a residents life.
