Meet The Manager

Sarah Milnes RGN is Home Manager at Woodleigh Christian Care Home.

I have worked in the care sector from the age of 18, I qualified as an adult nurse from Nottingham University School of Nursing. I have lots of experience with complex care and dementia care, I have a passion for palliative care and have lots of experience nursing people during their final weeks and days. I have won awards for my work in palliative care and for my dedication and passion in the care sector. I found myself dedicating my career to ensuring that everyone I had the privilege of caring for received the best care possible, emphasising to colleagues that we only get one chance to get it right, encouraging colleagues to progress in their own careers and supporting them to reach their full potential. I believe that leading by example is the best formula for an outstanding team. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going to festivals and try to keep fit, I love dogs of all shapes and sizes. I am passionate about pet therapy in care homes.

John grew up in Manchester and has personal experience of being part of a small family living with and caring for a relation (his grandmother, who lived to be 101) and equally of the emotions experienced when a family can no longer provide 24/7 care at home.

Chaplin

Being Chaplain for both Woodleigh Christian Care Home and Baily House means I play a part in ensuring the lives of our residents are both fulfilling and purposeful, which gives me a huge amount of enjoyment and satisfaction.

As Chaplain I have an opportunity not only to share in a person’s faith or spiritual needs, but to support them with their emotional, physical and practical needs and support their families too.

My role gives a voice to those who may not otherwise be heard, ensuring equality, dignity, purpose and respect are promoted for everyone in a just and equal manner and without exception.

Carol Jewkes
Carol Jewkes
Care Planner

My role is to talk to the residents and their families to find out all about them so that we can plan and give the best possible care.

I trained as a nurse - many years ago! - and have worked and lived around Mansfield all my life.  I was born in the "Brown Cow" car park!

My nursing background is in Accident & Emergency and District Nursing, all skills I can usefully transfer here at Woodleigh.

Leah Wall

Housekeeper

From being a Carer and then the Housekeeper I know how an individual’s needs change on a daily basis, so I like to support them in any way possible. I like to keep all areas of the home to an exceptional high standard of cleanliness, so that our residents and their families feel cared for and safe when they need it most. I take immense pride in my work and I strive to make a difference to both the Resident’s and my colleagues in a warm and friendly home.

In my spare time, I am my Mum’s main carer, and enjoy spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren, as well as taking our dogs for walks in the country.

Katy Haag
Katy Haag
Ambitions coordinator

My most favourite thing to do in life is to put a smile on people’s face.

I have many craft hobbies, I love singing/acting, I adore all things vintage and  am partial to getting dressed up at every opportunity. I also do a spot of part time modelling.

Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Myalgic encephalomyelitis and also Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome which turned my life upside down. I decided to take this as positive opportunity. I finally wanted to have a career that gave me a purpose and made me feel like I made a difference in someone’s life. I started to volunteer in residential homes

My new role as an ambition’s coordinator has changed my life and given me that purpose I have previously been lacking. Every day is a blessing and I feel truly blessed to work with the most wonderful residents and supportive staff. They all give so much more back to me then they perhaps realise.

Activities Are So Important

Needing help and support does not mean that you are unable to lead a rich and fulfilling life. At Woodleigh we work hard to ensure there is always something happening that you can enjoy watching or take part in, and we encourage you to come up with suggestions for new activities, events and trips out. There are regular outings, as well as many events in the home such as visiting entertainers, fashion shows, exercise sessions and reminiscing.

The home has its own weekly choir that has been a finalist in national competitions, and they regularly put on concerts for our residents. We also have a full time chaplain who will sit and chat with you and who arranges weekly prayer and bible studies, as well as services that you can attend. Our own charity ‘Friends of Woodleigh’ also organise events, support trips out, and buy presents at Christmas for all our residents. Whatever your personality and interests we feel sure there will always be something happening for you to enjoy and take part in if you would like to.
