The Future Care Group


Meet The Team at Stowford House Abingdon

Our Belief is that your future matters

Stephanie Jones

Home Manager

After training to become a registered nurse, I specialised in the care of the elderly, working as a nurse consultant and a modern matron. This involved overseeing a couple of community hospitals, as well as an NHS nursing home. The nature of the work meant that I subsequently progressed naturally into the management of care homes, all the while ensuring high standards of care.

Residents deserve a high standard of care and support – this is a matter that I am deeply passionate about. Consequently, I ensure that all policies, procedures, values, and the ethos of the Future Care Group are adhered to. These aspects assist me in cultivating a highly skilled team capable of enhancing the lives of our residents. This enables the team to lead happy and fulfilled lives, all the while retaining the freedom to choose the care and support the residents wish to receive.

I firmly believe in nurturing strong relationships with residents and their relatives. I acknowledge the crucial contribution that these relationships make to the effective operation of a care home. My door is always open should you wish to come and have a conversation.

Przemyslaw Zwolinski

Deputy Manager

I have been working in the field of Adult Social Care since the early 2006s. I began as a Health Care Assistant and gradually progressed into a managerial role starting in the early 2020s.

Throughout my career, I have gained experience in both Public and Private services, primarily in Nursing and Residential Homes.

My background is in nursing, which has allowed me to expand my knowledge and understanding of the clinical aspects of care.

I am deeply passionate about supporting older individuals and delivering care that truly centers around their needs. To achieve this, I believe in involving individuals whose personal values align with mine and the ethos of the Future Care Group.

I am dedicated to supporting my colleagues in their personal and professional growth through coaching, mentoring, and training. Empowering them to be their best not only benefits them individually but also has a positive impact on the quality of care provided in our home.

Kellie Shiers

Administration Manager

My name is Kellie Shiers and I am the Administration Manager of Stowford House Care Home. I have worked at the Home for 3 years, starting my journey with the admin team.

I found Stowford House while looking for 24-hour care for my Grandparents who I was caring for at home. As soon as I met the team, I knew I not only wanted my Grandparents to live here, I wanted to join the team and be part of making a difference to people’s futures.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my little boy doing various activities like baking and crafts. I also enjoy playing/listening to music, singing and reading.
