Meet The Manager

Audrey Smith is Manager at Wilbury.

Audrey has headed up Wilbury for over 10 years and dedicates herself to providing an outstanding home from home to all of its residents and the best happy work place for her dedicated team of staff. She has a very easy going, reassuring and friendly manor whilst being able to cater for everyone’s individual needs.

Audrey Smith

Wilbury is a warm and friendly registered care home for the elderly, with high standards of comfort and care. We pride ourselves on providing independence, fulfilment and exceptional 24 hour care.
Our priority is that Wilbury is a happy, comfortable, safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led place for our residents, and that their relatives and friends always feel welcome and confident that we are the best place and a ‘home from home’ for their loved ones.

Living in our care home provides residents with all the assistance they require, together with companionship, stimulation and healthy home cooked food. In addition to this we will provide relatives with the security and peace of mind that someone is always there looking after their loved ones. Wilbury Care Home has a team of fantastic staff that go to great lengths to look after their residents. We pride ourselves in giving the highest standards of tailored, individual care, and ensure residents can live happy and independent lives. Our weekly activities programme ranges from keep fit sessions to quizzes, as well as outings for shopping trips and local attractions, helping to keep everyone active and engaged.

Our typical resident would require some support, some more than others, but we treat each person as an individual and promote their independence. We have the ability to support residents with early onset of Dementia or Alzheimer's but we will access each residents needs before moving into Wilbury.
