Our Staff

St Matthews has a select team of experienced care staff who have each undertaken bespoke training to meet the individual needs of the home's residents. The home provides appropriate ratios of staff both day and night, alongside a day-to-day care ethos that delivers highly-personalised care where dignity, freedom and privacy are consistently upheld. With an industry-envied training programme and ongoing support & development, B&M Care's guiding principles are what define our staff within the dementia care sector.
“I started my career within care in 1994 as a nurse before moving to a care home setting in 2003. With a genuine passion for delivering a highly-personalised service that makes a difference to an individual’s overall wellbeing, I started as a Senior Care Assistant and worked my way up to eventually manage a home – a journey that contributed to my move to St Matthews in 2015. Throughout my career at B&M Care, I have achieved a number of qualifications, including a Level 5 QCF in Leadership for Health & Social Care.”
Alina Verescu - Home Manager
“Following many years working under a number of different care providers, I joined St Matthews in 2008 as Deputy Manager – an opportunity that has continued to stimulate learning throughout my career. In addition to my experience, I have acquired such qualification as an NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Health & Social Care, as well as successfully completing Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Tomorrow is Another Day’ dementia-specific training programme.”
Margo McKeown - Deputy Manager
“I started working in the care sector in 2008 before joining St Matthews in 2015 as Assistant Manager – a move that has prompted continued learning about delivering a service that reflects the company’s over-arching person-centred philosophy. I was promoted to Deputy Manager in 2016 after showing assertion and an overall commitment to my role within the home’s management team. Throughout my career, I have achieved a number of qualifications, including a Level 5 QCF in Leadership for Health & Social Care.”
Mihaela Alexa - Deputy Manager
“At the time I applied for an Assistant Manager opportunity at St Matthews I was a Deputy Manager at another care provider – a move that has allowed me to better develop my skillset and genuine passion for improving an individual’s overall wellness. My experience is complimented by a roster of qualifications, including a City & Guilds Level 3 Standard in Health & Social Care, and most recently, a PTTS Training Certificate.”
