Meet Our Manager


Sheena Croston

Sheena, a registered general nurse with more than 30 years’ experience, said: “In my first months in my new role, I have started the way I intend to carry on – building close relationships with schools, colleges and all kinds of groups. “I am determined to place Brackley Care Home at the heart of everything going on locally. It’s so important for residents to maintain strong ties with their local community. “Our residents will become a familiar sight on trips out to shops, pubs and places of interest and we will be inviting lots of people into the home, including school pupils and college students for inter-generational activities. I am very proud to be a Dementia Champion and an ambassador for Dementia Carers Count.” Mrs Croston brings to her new role the confidence and experience acquired from being the commissioning manager of two other luxury care homes, near Bedford and in High Wycombe.

Customer Relationship Manager

I have lived most of my life in South Africa where I gained extensive knowledge in a customer-centric environment within the industry of horseracing.  I am thrilled to have joined the amazing team at The Brackley Care Home and to be given the opportunity to utilize my skills to ensure that each person here is treated individually and made to feel as special as possible.  I am a people’s person who thrives on going the extra mile and nothing will ever be too much trouble, from popping out to the shop to buy a bar of someone’s favourite chocolate, just because they feel like it, to trying to make a person’s dreams come true. My motto is do everything that you can today as tomorrow is not promised and I aim to make a positive difference to everyone that I encounter. I look forward to getting to know our current residents and to welcoming all future new residents (and their families) to The Brackley Care Home.

Executive Chef

I am an experienced and talented chef with a passion for food. I am exceptionally reliable and disciplined. My experience allowed me to learn and develop skills along the way such as planning corporate events and client’s functions, meeting both business financial and customers satisfaction targets as well as the local Environmental Health Authority requirement.  I am initiative-taking with good interpersonal and communication skills allowing me to build a positive relationship with colleagues, customers, and suppliers alike. I have great privilege to work at the newly opened Brackley care home, from day one. I had the opportunity to design the kitchen setting and make it my own. Serving a simple plate of food full of colour and taste is like painting a rare piece of art, putting a smile on the face of our residents, that is my true reward.
