Meet the Manager

Esther Appiah - Kippingtons - Home ManagerEsther is our Home Manager at Kippingtons Nursing Home, here’s a little bit more about the home in her own words:

“With a Degree in Business Management and a Masters in Dementia Studies, I have worked within the care sector for fifteen years, twelve of those have been as a manager. I have worked mainly with people living with dementia during my time in the sector, however I have also supported a range of care needs including adults with complex learning disabilities.

I enjoy getting to know our residents and listening to their life stories, you can certainly learn a lot from their wisdom. I love the aspect of leading a team of heroes that go above and beyond their everyday to support our residents. I put quality care at the forefront of what I do, providing person-centred care, treating everybody with dignity and respect. As Home Manager I like to think I bring a sense of smooth running, professionalism, collaboration, and trust to the home.

Kippingtons is a wonderful home from home with a wide range of first-class facilities with exciting activities, and plenty of places to relax or entertain. There are lovely, shared areas to enjoy, from beautiful lounges and garden rooms to the stunning gardens. We’re walking distance from the centre of Sevenoaks and residents make the most of our location, browsing in the local shops, enjoying a pub lunch, or having tea in one of the cafes.

I live about seven miles away from the home in a place called Biggin Hill in which I have lived for nine years, and think my biggest achievement is certainly juggling work, family, and studies. My favourite hobbies are reading and watching thriller films!”

At Kippingtons, care from the heart is embodied in our community through living and working by our visions and values. We will always endeavour to be respectful and empathetic, working with integrity and collaboration, and always strive for excellence. We create a culture that is truly resident-centred and are constantly learning to improve outcomes or experiences.
