Meet The Manager

Karen Byres is The Home Manager at Claremont Court Care Home.

Karen has worked in the healthcare arena for over 30 years, having been inspired as a child by her mother who ran a nursing home in Southampton. Karen started her career as a carer and in the intervening years, has gained a wealth of experience working with and then managing teams caring for older people with dementia. Since 2014, Karen has been the Registered Home Manager of Claremont Court in Guildford.

Karen’s passion is to create a home from home for all her residents, within a warm and friendly environment. She has developed an exceptionally dedicated team that has been cherry-picked to form the stable family unit at the heart of Claremont Court’s dementia care.  Karen is rightly proud of having led the team to win the prestigious Care Provider of the Year award at the 2017 Surrey Care Awards.

Nimmy Markson
Deputy Manager

Nimmy began his career in care after moving from India to the UK in 2012. He had always had an interest in the care sector, volunteering with older people and in orphanages as a student, yet it was following his second-degree studying Computing in London that he discovered this was to be his vocation. After a move to Surrey, he volunteered in a care home, quickly progressing from Carer to Senior then Team Leader, later working as a Home Manager for Surrey County Council. As Deputy Manager now at Claremont Court Nimmy really enjoys being able to support residents, however, complex their dementia is and finds it incredibly rewarding. When Nimmy isn’t busy at Claremont Court he loves to travel and explore new places.
