Our Staff


The home employs a General Manager, Shirley Oxley, who has a wealth of experience in the field of caring for older persons and those living with dementia.

Experienced care home staff

A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission and who has legal responsibility, along with the owners, for the care and wellbeing of the home’s residents.

Shirley leads a team of dedicated care staff, who have all had extensive training, including training for all levels of dementia care. Many have NVQ qualifications.

Staff have to undergo annual, mandatory training in many aspects of care, including first aid, fire safety, food hygiene, safeguarding and infection control. In addition, we offer many optional training courses and have in-house training on practical matters such as moving and handling from external experts. Our training programmes are on-going and conform to all current legislation and guidance including that issued by the Social Care Institute for Excellence.

We also employ a chef and ancillary staff to provide catering, housekeeping and maintenance services.

We are lucky to have almost one acre of beautiful, landscaped gardens for the enjoyment of our residents, their families and friends, and staff.

Sholden Hall Testimonial

“I cannot thank the staff enough for the care that my mother recieved during her last years whilst living at Sholden Hall. Her end of life care was carried out with love, dignity and with her families wishes carried out. As her family we were involved in every stage of her care and we were able to be with her until the end. The manager and staff made us feel at 'home', we cannot thank you enough”
