Our people

Meet our people

Our team is led by the Home Manager, Ryan Iyavoo, who regularly reports to the Board of Trustees. The team includes administrative staff, registered nurses, care assistants, and kitchen and housekeeping staff. Everyone is DBS checked before being appointed, and we provide regular training and supervision.

Volunteers play a huge role at Bridgemead, helping residents in a wide variety of ways. From manning the shop trolley, assisting in activities and distributing teas and coffees, to simply being a good friend, the volunteers’ work is priceless in bringing joy to residents. In fact, many of our volunteers find it equally rewarding – accompanying residents on day trips and spending time reading, chatting or eating. Our volunteers are all DBS checked.
