Our care services

We offer a huge range of support, from long-term residential care in our 36-bed care centre, to day services to help people remain independent at home. And our rehabilitative services can help people to improve or regain their abilities. Whether we’re supporting people in the community through our day services or in residential care, our focus is on making sure they live their lives as fully as possible. 

Meet the team

  • Terry Mears

    Care Centre Director

    I am passionate about person-centred care and support and believe people want a life not a service. I have had 30 years’ experience in health and social care managing and leading direct care services, social work teams and commissioning teams. The team at Sue Ryder are committed to person-centred care and support and we look to challenge ourselves on our values, culture, practice and how we truly can enable all of the people we support have the best life they can within the resources they have.

  • Vanessa Nolan

    Administration and Finance Supervisor

    I have worked at Sue Ryder since 2006, first as an Admin Assistant and more recently as Administration and Finance Supervisor. I co-ordinate the Finance and Admin team who provide a comprehensive service to staff and service users at Cuerden Hall. I enjoy being part of the management team at Cuerden Hall and being able to influence decisions that contribute to making it a great place to live and work. I live locally and feel privileged to work in such beautiful surroundings.

  • Sue Devlin

    Head of Care Services

    I have a wealth of nursing experience having worked in health and social care for over 30 years for the NHS, private and voluntary organisations. I joined Sue Ryder in 2000, and within my current role I manage a dedicated team of nurses and care support workers who deliver high quality, person-centered care to our residents. I feel privileged to be in a position where, by putting our residents and those who matter to them at the heart of everything we do, we are truly able to make a difference to people’s lives.

  • Laura Brewer

    Volunteer Engagement Co-ordinator

    At Cuerden Hall I play an integral role in engaging the local community; promoting the work that we do, engaging volunteers, developing links and partnerships, fundraising and much more. The future looks exciting for Cuerden Hall and our services are evolving to meet the changing needs of the people we support – my role has evolved alongside this change. I also manage staff and volunteers in delivering a variety of activities. Activity provision is my passion; I get as much therapeutic value from co-ordinating the programme as individuals do partaking in it! This is my fifth year with Sue Ryder, and I look forward to many more.

  • Jayne McGurran

    Practice Development Lead

    My background is in acute nursing and health visiting before taking a change of direction into teaching. Working at Cuerden Hall allows me to be more responsive to staff learning and development needs and it gives me great job satisfaction to see developments in care being implemented. Following 31 years working for the NHS it was a refreshing change to work in a very different care environment. I feel privileged to work with such a professional and dedicated group of staff who consistently go ‘the extra mile’ to enhance the quality of lives for our residents.
