Meet The Manager

Shann Thomas is Home Director at Brockington House Care Community.

I originally qualified as both RMN and RGN and went on to join the Private Sector in 1992. I then moved to live in Africa for 17 years and ran a successful business before returning to the UK in 2014 where I joined a leading care home provider as a Home Manager. I was delighted to receive a Divisional award for Outstanding Care and Quality during my time managing a successful nursing and dementia home in Shropshire.

I am excited to join Dormy Care as know that I have the same vision to provide outstanding care to our residents in a beautiful environment and working with a team that feels more like a family.

Having spent 10 years in the RAF as an Assistant Air Traffic Controller I then moved on to work as an administrator in private hospitals for the last ten years whilst bringing up my son.
