Our Belief is that your future matters

Isabel Nyirenda

Home Manager

My Name is Isabel Nyirenda. I am the home manager at Cedar View Care Centre. I have been working in healthcare, both the NHS and the Private Sector for many years. I qualified as a Registered General nurse in 1993. I have acquired a lot of experience in various fields of Nursing and my philosophy has remained very simple – “Treat others as you would like to be treated.” I have a team that embraces a holistic approach to deliver a person-cantered care. Although pictures in the brochure can speak a thousand words; but a visit to the Home where you can see for yourself and have a feel of the place and also have the opportunity to chat with any members of the team, residents or visiting relatives is always recommended.

Erik Cortez

Deputy Manager

I am a First Level Registered Nurse (General Adult) and have been working for 20 years across different organisations in UK. All of which is in a nursing home. I have been a Home Manager as well as Deputy Manager. I have worked in the Adults’ Social and Health Care Department for 5 years. I love working with the residents and their families, and making sure that I support the residents to meet their needs.

My hobbies include reading novels, Netflix, gardening, landscape photography, cooking, baking and cake decorating.

I enjoy my role at Cedar View because one day is never the same and I am involved with everything that goes on!

Having worked here since 2016 when Cedar first opened, I have seen many changes and have enjoyed experiencing it’s growth in terms of residents and staff alike.

Sandra Akpeji

Administration Assistant
My role as the first point of contact for our lovely home, has not only allowed me to grow in terms of my confidence, but it allowed me to be empathetic, compassionate, understanding and patient with staff, residents and relatives.
Working here had helped me to broaden my skills and knowledge that I can implement not only at the workplace but also in my day to day life and I will always be grateful for the experience working with this lovely team/family.

The best part of my role is creating moments of joy for our residents and helping them to overcome obstacles to fulfil their aims and wishes. My role is important because the well-being of our residents is at the core of everything we do.
