5 minutes with…. Janice Wilkinson, Registered Manager at Cramlington House

How did you get into care?

Following a divorce, I felt empowered to change my life totally. I had a huge desire to feel needed and to look after people, which is why I chose to become a carer.

What is it that you love most about caring for the elderly?

Ensuring they get the best quality care they so rightfully deserve.

3 people you’d love to have dinner with?

Captain Jack Sparrow alias Johnny Depp (how gorgeous!), James Corden (because he’s absolutely hilarious), and Bobby Robson, a true legend.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Lindt dark chocolate with hazelnut, it’s scrumptious!

What’s your passion outside of care?

I enjoy spending time with my family, watching football (which I absolutely love!) and going to the gym regularly.

  • "From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "

  • "This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "

  • "All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
