Penns Mount is owned by Daniel Corker and Nicola Newton. Daniel is a solicitor and Nicola has a background in regulatory compliance and together they oversee the running of the home. We run our home like a family home rather than a commercial organisation and ensure our home is a place where we would feel happy having our nearest and dearest live. We aspire for our home to be the best in the area, the care to be exceptional and a place where people want to live and work.
Sarah Bracher is the Home’s dedicated manager. She is front of house, sensitive, and caring, and also extremely wise in her perception, coupled with the appropriate balance between caring and managing effectively and efficiently. Sarah is brilliant with our residents and equally professional and understanding to their loved ones visiting Penns Mount. She is pro-active in co-opting input when necessary from the various health care professionals, and the home is quick to identify situations that require medical intervention and support from the GP’s and other health care professionals. Sarah and her team pride themselves on spotting the warning signs that sometimes present themselves with our residents. They are incredibly perceptive when it comes to your loved ones needs.
The Care Team is headed by Kelly and Sandra – our Senior Care Assistants – the constant eyes and ears of Penns Mount. They are highly qualified and have many years of care experience on the front line. They are naturally intuitive and above all they uphold the philosophy that ‘your loved one comes first’. Our Seniors are complemented by 12 trained Care Assistants, Chef, Housekeeper and Maintenance Person.
Training. The Home is fully committed to staff education and skills development and encourages training in QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) at all levels of care and invests in further specialist tuition in areas relevant to our residents needs.
