Suma Mathew

Registered Manager

Qualified with a Diploma in General Nursing and Midwifery, a BSc honours degree in Clinical Leadership at Northampton University, and a level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management, Suma has 25 years of working experience. She is also an inhouse trainer with “Train the Trainer” qualifications for Care and Moving & Handling, and a nurse trainer with mentorship qualifications from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.

Suma started her career at Cherry Blossom Care Home as Deputy Manager, becoming Acting Manager before being promoted to Registered Manager in January 2021. A manager who thrives on helping build new friendships for our residents and encouraging local community involvement, Suma’s focus is on living a life of possibilities.

Home Services Assistant

Home Service Assistant Nicola has been part of the Cherry Blossom Care Home team from day one. Before joining Cherry Blossom as a Care Assistant, she worked for ten years as a manager in jewellery retail. Her transition to a service assistant role was driven by excellent customer care skills and her passion for making a difference in people’s lives.

Nicola welcomes all visitors with a warm smile and assists them according to their needs. One of her key roles is helping prospective residents, family and friends with tours of the home - a responsibility she maintained during the pandemic, with all the rigorous safeguarding restrictions that entailed. A daily visitor to our residents to deliver their newspapers, Nicola knows the value of simple pleasures like a chat and a laugh.

She is also a key member of management team, helping in the daily running of the home in aspects such as organising supplies, recruitment of staff, interviews and meetings with management. Well-liked by staff, residents, their relatives and friends, glowing feedback consistently highlights Nicola’s sunny disposition and calm efficiency.


Home Administrator

A post-graduate with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration in Marketing & Finance and ten years’ experience in the finance sector for leading multinational banks, Sam brings strong analytical and problem-solving skills to his role at Cherry Blossom Care Home. An expert in client relationship management, with an ability to grasp clients’ requirements and deliver appropriate solutions, he also holds a Higher Diploma in Software Engineering.

He became Bank Administration assistant within a couple of months of joining Cherry Blossom Care Home in 2020. He then moved on as the Home Administrator at another home in the group for a couple of months, before returning to perform this function at Cherry Blossom.

As part of the senior management team, Sam manages the home’s finance, payroll and administration matters. He welcomes residents and their families with a smile, and he is liked by customers for his gentle nature.
Nicky Josselyn

Nicky Josselyn

Regional Manager Central & Western

Nicky brings more than 25 years’ care sector experience to her role as Regional Manager, with a career that spans a wide variety of roles, from care assistant to regional manager.

As her father was in the RAF, Nicky grew up as a Forces child – educated in Germany and living in many locations through her younger life, including Hong Kong. Married for 17 years, with four wonderful sons (and recently becoming a Nanny to yet another little boy!) she is happily settled in a lovely Suffolk village. As her youngest son is an outstanding striker for his football team, she can often be seen on Saturdays and Sundays running the line at his matches. Her other main sporting interest is pool – she plays for Suffolk and also runs two teams in the Ipswich league. Nicky also enjoys spending her leisure time at the gym, relaxing with her family or walking her French Bulldogs, Ralph and Coco, who are frequent visitors the homes she managers, where the residents adore them and treat them very much as their own.

My sister was admitted to the Cherry Blossom Care Home at the end of January. Prior to this, we had no experience with care homes.
I am very impressed by the high quality of care she has received. Staff are very helpful when I visit or phone to check on my sister's condition. There has been a steady improvement over the two months.
I would consider the care provided by Cherry Blossom to be of a high standard.

Personalised care in action

No two people are the same and, at Cherry Blossom Care Home, we ensure that each resident’s care plan meets all of their individual needs. Dignity, privacy and the appropriate level of independence are our top priorities. This is why we take the time to talk to new residents and their loved ones prior to admission to establish a tailor-made package of care and support.
