Meet The Manager

Jacqueline Ferguson is Care Home Manager at Walstead Place Care Home.

I have vast experience in the elderly care sector. As a registered nurse with over 25 years experience, mainly in elderly care, I have worked in nursing homes as a Registered Nurse and as Home Manager. I have also worked as Operations Area Manager for a large healthcare company. I came back to the role of Home Manager as I missed working in a care home.

My primary responsibilities are to provide quality care to all clients, oversee and maintain the smooth running of the business on a day to day basis and maintain standards in accordance with the regulations.

I enjoy the daily contact I have with residents, their families and my Care Team. I also enjoy ensuring that the home is able to provide the appropriate care to all clients while maintaining their independence, privacy and the right to choose.

Walstead Place Care Home in Haywards Heath is a magnificent 19th century country squire’s residence, sensitively converted to provide the highest standard of residential care for up to 43 elderly residents. The home itself is located in the quietly beautiful hamlet of Walstead, just a mile from Lindfield.

Walstead Place care home in Sussex retains many fine period features, which are complemented by recent additions including a magnificent new conservatory adjoining the substantial main lounge. The home itself is matched by its grounds with over two acres of rolling lawns, a rose garden and a wonderful walled garden set to the backdrop of the beautiful West Sussex countryside.

In keeping with its outstanding location, Walstead Place’s staff team work hard to provide the very best in care and were well deserved finalists in the Care Team of the Year category at Caring Homes’ Delivering Excellence Awards.

We offer a full range of residential care support, including trial stays, short stay and convalescent care, as well as long-term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms.

As the Home Manager at Walstead Place, I have a qualified nursing background and lead my care team to provide the highest standards of care. I also ensure that every member of our team receives the ongoing training they need to deliver the best care possible.

Our home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission, with both ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.
