My name is Amanda Tanner and I am the General Manager for Shinfield View Care Home. I began my new position mid-May and have been made to feel so welcome by the wonderful team of staff here, and of course our friendly family of residents. So… a little bit about me - I am incredibly passionate about the lives our residents live, and I feel all of our residents need to continue living life to the full, feeling  a sense of purpose and gaining a lot of enjoyment. This was what was so attractive to me about working at Shinfield View- the creative activities seven days every week, the fine dining and high quality food - I can honestly say I have never worked in a home quite like it!

On a personal level, I have a 6 month old daughter, so I enjoy spending time outside of work with my family. I enjoy going out for meals, and I like to dabble in photography (although I didn’t take this one of me!)

Yesterday evening we indulged in some welcome drinks, and it was fantastic to meet some of our residents’ relatives at Shinfield View.  I do hope in due course I will meet everyone else and I very much look forward to it!

In the meantime if you or someone close to you need to talk to somebody about long term elderly care, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I am always delighted to meet new people and you are welcome at Shinfield View any time.

Best wishes,
