Jan joined Allegra Care as Registered Manager at Dunwood Manor in June 2022, bringing a passion for dementia care borne of personal experience with her own mother, and an extensive track record of working in the care sector for 30 years.
Her career started as a carer in a local authority care home in 1985, before moving into community care. A Registered Nurse since 2009, her wide-ranging experience encompasses working for Hampshire and Surrey County Councils, BUPA, Care UK, Leonard Cheshire and McCarthy & Stone.
Away from work, Jan enjoys walking, keeping fit and doing up her home, which she describes as a labour of love. Above all, she loves supporting the youngest of her three sons on his international pathway to hopefully representing GB at badminton in the Olympic Games.
