Team Members The Spinney Residential Home

The Spinney Residential Home has been owned by Mr. Richard & Mrs. Pauline Duffy since 1993 and they have adopted a clear hands on approach. They are actively involved with the day to day running of the home. Richard finds himself mainly dealing with the Garden and Grounds and purchasing items needed by the home. Pauline is actively involved in the safe running of the home and enjoys welcoming new residents to the home and making sure they live in quality and comfortable surroundings. Mrs Duffy has completed a course in Management in Health and Social Care at Leeds Metropolitan University.

The registered manager for the home is Mrs Angeline Hirst. Angeline has around 12 years experience of working in care homes and has worked in a variety of settings from Residential and Dementia care. Angeline has all the relevant qualifications for his post as manager and is currently working towards the level 5 Health and Social care – Leadership and management. This is Angeline’s first home manager appointment and is very much looking forward to supporting the home and staff moving forward. Angeline enjoys caring and supporting people and wishes to pass on her skills and knowledge to junior staff.

The home is also supported by a team of senior carers, team leaders and care assistants too, all of whom continue to develop their skills and training knowledge. Training is always ongoing with all staff within the home and this shows within their work. We also have a HR and Compliance Manager, Administrator, Cooks and assistants, Domestic Staff and out Gardener / Maintenance person.
