Janie Wilkins
Home Manager

Janie is not only an experienced Home Care Manager, she is also a nurse which is an asset.  As well as "managing" the Care Home with her experienced team of nurses, homemakers and support staff, her focus is truly about person centred care.  This means that all residents are recognised as individuals, not only in care terms, but with different hobbies and interests.  This leads to a more settled resident who is cared for and benefits from positive social interaction, and mental stimulation, making every day a good day.
