Meet The Team at Holmwood Care Centre

Our Belief is that your future matters

Debbie Cullen

Home Manager

Hello, my name is Debbie and I am the Home Manager at Holmwood Care Centre. I have been working in care homes for 34 years. I started my career as a care assistant, and then went on to become a qualified nurse. Shortly after, I became a home manager. From a young age I have always enjoyed looking after and caring for elderly people.

Here, at Holmwood, we have a friendly and dedicated team which feels like one big family. Each day is unique and rewarding.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends as well as going on long walks with my dog.

Kim Howard

Administration Manager

Hello, I’m Kim. I have been the Administration Manager at Holmwood for 18 years and have previously worked in Personnel Admin before taking time off to have a family.

I enjoy working in an environment that is challenging and rewarding, which is why I love Holmwood! The residents are wonderful here and I love being a part of their lives every day. There is a good team at Holmwood with quite a few members of staff who have been here for a number of years. This makes for a solid base for our work at Holmwood.

I look forward to continuing in my role and ensuring that Holmwood is a happy home for everyone.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my family.
