Maebh McCormack

Home Manager

After beginning my nursing training in 2006 at Trinity College Dublin. I graduated in 2010 with a BSC Honours Degree in Intellectual Disabilities and began my nursing career at Stewarts Hospital in Dublin. I made the decision to move to the U.K to explore Forensic Mental Health before taking time to travel in 2014. I returned to the UK and had an interest in pursuing care of the elderly and supporting those with palliative needs. I joined Kingsley Healthcare in 2018 as the Deputy Manager, taking on the role of Home Manager at Heron Lodge in 2020. I’m passionate about training, continuous professional development and supporting all the staff who join us at Heron Lodge to further their skills and training.

Head Chef

I’ve been working as a Chef within the care industry for the past 15 years, before that I was lucky enough to work in France and Spain for five years for a UK overseas water sports company.  I have always found working in the care setting as a Chef far more rewarding than in a Restaurant or Hotel because you are trying to help make a difference.
