Holly worked at Sibbertoft Manor for 8 years as HR/Operations Manager. After the birth of her first child she returned to us on a part-time basis as Account Manager. She is responsible for both purchase and sales ledger invoicing and payroll.


We have nine registered nurses on our staff (2 RMN’s and 7 RGN’s), all of whom have worked at Sibbertoft Manor for several years.


We have two carers who also provide training for the company. Our trainers hold numerous training certificates and are able to train our care staff in many mandatory training areas. Using our own staff works extremely well as it means they can deliver training personal to our home and residents.

Carers/Housekeepers and Catering Staff

Every member of this team has a valuable role within the organisation and all play their part in providing the first-class care afforded to our residents. All care staff complete The Care Certificate within 12 weeks of commencing work. Additionally, all staff are required to complete training relevant to their positions and refresh training qualifications on a regular basis. Following 3 months of service staff are afforded the opportunity to develop the skill base further with Apprenticeship Schemes within their professional fields

Maintenance Personnel and Gardeners

We have our own maintenance personnel allowing us to ensure maintenance is always dealt with swiftly.
Our gardeners take pride in producing beautiful gardens for residents and their families to enjoy.

Activities Co-ordinators

We have two activities coordinators who, between them, are responsible for ensuring residents have access to regular entertainment, whether it is reading them poetry, playing cards or group activities. Our activity calendar is varied to cater for all our residents’ hobbies and interests.

The Owner

Sibbertoft Manor is a privately-owned home. The proprietor lives within the grounds of the nursing home and can often be found on-site. This proximity to the home means that little goes unnoticed and provides for easy attention to detail.
