What is your background in Care?
My first experience of working in a residential care home was back in 1988 in a care home in Liss in Hampshire. It was there that I realised that I really enjoyed caring for people. Now over 20 years on, I’ve never looked back and still enjoy every day.

How do you spend your free time?
I have many hobbies. I love making jewellery and DIY, but my passion lies with sailing and being out on the sea.

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
I delivered my first born son, an experience I will treasure forever and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again (although I really don’t want any more children!).

What’s your perfect Friday night?
Spending the evening together with my family and trying to encourage them to watch some science fiction on the TV with me.

What’s your favourite film?
I love the latest Star Trek movies and TV series.

 

How do you take your coffee?
I take my coffee “au naturale” (black with no sugar) and my tea with a dash of milk.

What is your background in Care?
I joined Richard in the family business nearly four years ago when I left my 20 year Management position with New Forest District Council. I have since embraced my role in care and have absolutely loved providing hands on care to our home care customers.

How do you spend your free time?
I enjoy keeping fit outdoors, long walks with our two dogs and everything to do with water.. wild swimming, sailing, paddle boarding, speedboat fun...

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
I had a fantastic experience of a parachute jump from a small aircraft at 15,000ft and loved it.

What’s your perfect Friday night?
Planning visits with our grown children; In the lighter nights a bbq on the patio enjoying the late sunshine, in the winter months I love lighting the wood burner and cosying up the lounge with a good board game! 

What’s your favourite film?

I always struggle with this question but I would definitely include Paul and Bridesmaids in my favourite list. 

How do you take your coffee?
I take my coffee with oat milk and one sugar.

Mandy Woon, our Manager at The Old Rectory 

I started in care with work experience in a care home in Bournemouth when I was still in senior school this would have been around 1985. I then studied elderly care and working with children. 

I have always worked caring for the older person, I have worked in care homes and in home care and private care. I have been in senior management roles within the care sector for around 10 years and I have worked my way up completing my Diplomas, 2, 3, and 5 in Health and Social Care. 

I have also worked with children in a hospice for around 8 years.

I am very passionate about caring and I have very good people skills. 

 

I have been involved in several fundraising events from parachute jumping & army assault courses to riding on lawn mowers around a course at high speeds (but had to give this up when I was in my late 40s due to racing too fast and crashing) as I do like to do things that are risky!

I like to spend my free time with family and grandchildren. My family and I have enjoyed camping for many years and we now go caravanning most years. I also love dogs and cats. 

 

My perfect Friday evenings are spent catching up with family and friends for a drink.
