Home Manager

Hello, my name is Debbie and I am the Home Manager at Holmwood Care Centre. I have been working in care homes for 34 years. I started my career as a care assistant, and then went on to become a qualified nurse. Shortly after, I became a home manager. From a young age I have always enjoyed looking after and caring for elderly people.

Here, at Holmwood, we have a friendly and dedicated team which feels like one big family. Each day is unique and rewarding.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends as well as going on long walks with my dog.

Wendy Hobbins

Lifestyle Coordinator

I have always shown my caring side even as a girl when I used to do errands to the local shop for my elderly neighbours at the age of fourteen. I always knew that I would work within a care setting. The opportunity arose to work at Holmwood and I grasped it with both hands. I have worked at Holmwood for fifteen years now and have loved every minute, no two days are the same! I have met so many wonderful people here and have seen so many positive changes within the care sector. I love what I do and know that each day is special to those I meet and care for.

The best part of my role is being able to make a difference to our residents’ lives. It may be during an activity, a sense of achievement or a smile, laugh or a few kind words of reassurance to make someone feel special within our Holmwood family.
