Meet the Manager

Sheree Burleton - Bradbury House - Home ManagerSheree is our Home Manager at Bradbury House Care Home, here’s a little bit more about the home in her own words:

“I have worked in the care sector for 28 years, starting as a Night Care Assistant in a nursing home. I have worked as a Care Assistant, then Senior Care Assistant in various residential, nursing and dementia homes. I joined Bradbury House 12 years ago and was a Senior Care Assistant for six years, also covering as Head Chef during this time. I then progressed to Deputy Home Manager for six years and at the end of July 2023 I became the Home Manager.

I oversee the day-to-day running of the home, ensuring that we meet all legislative and compliance requirements. I recruit and support my team members, as well as provide information and advice to support our residents and their families.

I enjoy my job because it is fun! I love talking and listening to our residents about their life before coming to live at Bradbury House. I love bringing a fun element to their day by being a little crazy! I feel happy knowing that I make our residents feel safe and confident knowing that their best interests are my priority.

I love leading my team and encouraging their ideas, no matter how big or small, to improve and enhance our residents stay at our home. I feel that I have a positive impact and that I motivate others and believe that my team enjoy coming to work at Bradbury House.

My biggest achievement must be achieving the role of Home Manager through hard work, training, and dedication. Personally, one of my proudest achievements was canyon walking. I was petrified, but excited at the same time and I was not going to give up!

My values might be a little cliché but are so true. I treat everyone as I would expect to be treated and if I feel I don’t have anything nice to say, then I don’t say anything! I believe care from the heart means being understanding, having empathy and compassion, as well as being reassuring.

I live in Braintree and have done most of my life. I have seen some changes, some for the better and I love the sense of community here. I enjoy the fact that I am able to see familiar faces when I am out and about.”
