What Our Staff Say...

Liz McCabe, Manager

I qualified as a nurse in 2004 and have worked in various areas of the NHS and the Independent Sector, as a nurse, care coordinator and registered manager. My journey into management in the independent sector started in 2011 and I have really enjoyed working in a variety of care settings since. I started working at Oaklands in 2022 and became manager in 2023. Working within care over the last few years has not been without it’s challenges but I am extremely proud of our team at Oaklands for their resilience and dedication to supporting and caring for our ladies, gentlemen and each other as team members. They ensure that care and compassion is balanced with fun and laughter doing their best to ensure that all who work or live in Oaklands enjoy their day.

Cara Millar, Deputy Manager

I have worked at Oaklands Nursing Home since 2008 and have worked in all the departments within the home.  I found that I got great satisfaction working as a care assistant because I could really get to know our ladies and gentlemen and support them with all their needs. I love seeing our ladies and gentlemen enjoying their life within our home. It’s great to know that I have made a difference and seeing the ladies and gentlemen’s smiles is heart warming. Within the last couple of years I have enjoyed my career development at Oaklands, progressing from a Care Assistant to a Senior Care Assistant and I am now currently the Deputy Manager. I am looking forward to my further development and supporting the service to ensure that we continue to give the excellent service that Oaklands is renowned for.
