Key Team Members

My name is Clare and I am the Manager here at Longmead Court, I commenced in post in June 2015 following ten years working for two large care home providers. I decided to pursue a career in nursing following my experience of working as a care assistant in a nursing home after leaving school.

Since finishing my nurse training I spent some time working as a nurse in a care home and also spent 3 years working in Broomfield hospital in an acute setting, since then I have dedicated my career to improving the lives of older people in nursing homes.



My name is Julie McDowall, I am the Clinical Manager/ Matron here at Longmead Court. I started my nursing career in hospital and worked as an auxiliary prior to my graduation. I have worked in many disciplines including ; renal care, diabetic care, general surgery and general medicine. I then chose to specialise in trauma nursing which I loved and gained fantastic experience.

I progressed to Sister grade then took a Nurse Teaching qualification. My passions include dementia and palliative care which I have worked in for the past 6years.

I enjoy all aspects of being a nurse and fundamentally aim to make a positive impact to my residents and relatives at all times.
