Home Manager

Charlotte Dury

I have worked in the care sector for the last 15 years, I have worked in a number of different roles, and in different settings. I have worked in the mental health sector, older adults services as well as younger adults. Through experience I have found that older adult services are my real passion.  I have previously managed a supported living service, so looking forward to the new challenge of working with my Team at Sandpiper, in the care home setting . I started my journey with Tanglewood as a night senior carer, and progressed to Deputy Care Manager, before my recent promotion to home Manager.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, and eating out…I am a foodie. I have a Dog ‘ Charlie’ who we rescued 11 years ago. He has gone from a shy, timid boy, Mischievous and very naughty. We also have a cat ’Willow’ and a bearded dragon ‘ Cleo’.

I am looking forward to getting to know all the residents, my colleagues, and resident  families here at Sandpiper.  Everyone has been so welcoming, and the atmosphere is one of a true family environment
