Meet The Manager

Nikki Culleton is General Manager at Kenwyn.

I am originally from Liverpool, and I qualified as an RGN in 1991 at Medway Hospital in Kent. After qualifying, I reached the role of ward sister on an acute cardiology medical ward, then married and worked within the military environment as a nurse practitioner. 

I have continued to study throughout my career, obtaining several additional professional nursing qualifications.

In 2009 I made a career change, working as a deputy manager in a nursing home, and subsequently as a general manager for over 10 years.

I have moved to Cornwall and, with the assistance of my team, I am now responsible for the running of this beautiful care home.  

Here at Kenwyn, were are passionate about providing safe & effective care within a supportive and friendly environment.

Our aim is to ensure that all residents are happy and fulfilled throughout their stay at our nursing home, and that the welfare of each resident is at the forefront of what we do each day.

Activities Are So Important

Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
