Hello, my name is Sahlee, I have worked for Woodlands and Hill Brow since 2011 as a home manager and nurse. My real passion in life is nursing and I specialise in palliative care and tissue viability. It is so important to me that the residents who we care for are comfortable and that every day we can help to improve their quality of care.

Resident Liaison

I am so proud to be part of the Woodlands & Hill Brow family.  I love working in a compassionate, caring environment with such a lovely team who all ensure the best support available is given to all of our Residents. 

I absolutely love coming to work and get so much fulfilment from being able to show people around our lovely homes, welcoming them to our warm, caring and stimulating environments. The biggest pleasure is then being able to welcome families and new Residents into our homes, and to ensure the move in process goes smoothly.  The Residents and people I meet along the way are what makes this role such an enjoyable one and the greatest reward is seeing them flourish in our homes.


I have been working at Farnham Mill, for just over three years, as a Front of House Receptionist.

I worked for a well know high street bank but changed my career which was inspired by my mum’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and the impact it had and still has on my family’s lives. I am passionate about and love my role at Farnham Mill. To see families being able to spend time together is my real inspiration and to be able to spend time with our residents is a real privilege on a day to day basis.

Hospitality Manager

"I fell in love with working in care, about 10 years ago, by sheer luck, when I was offered the restaurant manager's role in a luxury care home in Surrey.

I love running Hospitality Services in care because it is a chance to give a fine polish to the lives of so many wonderful people at a stage in their lives, when I believe it is most important.

What strikes me most about Farnham Mill is the contentment in the atmosphere. and that it feels like everyone genuinely knows and cares about each other, staff and residents alike.

I'm really excited to be part of that team and to put my expertise into the mix to help create something truly special."
