Care you won't forget

Time and again the feedback we receive - not only from residents but from families and loved ones - highlights the outstanding quality of care provided at Waverley Lodge. Our highly skilled and knowledgeable team strives day and night to deliver care that goes above and beyond our residents’ needs.

Meet the team

Under the leadership and guidance of Registered Manager Jenny Wheeler, our team is committed to delivering first class care and exemplary service to our residents at all times.



Registered Manager

Since starting as a care assistant at New Forest Nursing Home in 1987, Jenny has devoted her career to working in the care sector. She studied at college to complete her access to higher education before commencing nurse training at Southampton University in 2003, continuing to work at New Forest Nursing Home for the duration of her studies. Upon qualifying as a Registered General Nurse in 2006, she moved to Waverley Lodge Nursing Home, a specialist centre for adults aged 18 to 65 with a variety of care needs. She has been at Waverley Lodge ever since, enjoying an immensely rewarding and satisfying career as she’s worked her way up through the ranks. Now, as Registered Manager, she works closely with her dedicated team to deliver exceptional care to Waverley’s residents. In her time off, Jenny loves reading, going to the cinema and eating out.

Alison Bruce

Regional Manager

Alison undertook her nursing training at St Bartholomews Hospital in London before working for two years in Saudi Arabia. Returning to the UK, she held a number of nursing posts before assuming the role of Manager at New Forest Nursing Home. Her role and responsibilities expanded in 1996, becoming Director of Care for Sentinel Health Care’s homes in Hampshire. Subsequently, with Allegra Care’s acquisition of the Sentinel group in 2021, she became Regional Manager, continuing to oversee the day to day operations of all five homes across the New Forest and environs. Passionate about caring for the elderly, Alison is dedicated to upholding the very highest standards of care and service delivered by Allegra Care.
My sister is cared for extremely well with great care and love. I couldn’t ask for her to be in a better home and am extremely grateful to all the wonderful staff, who are also very kind to me when I visit.

Sister of resident, July 2021
Waverley Lodge has the most caring staff that I have had the pleasure to know. My brother is given the best care. They support his needs emotionally and physically with dignity and gentleness. Each member of staff has a unique empathy for all the people they look after. My family respect every one of them. Thank you so much.

Personalised Care

Person-centred care is a cornerstone of Allegra Care’s philosophy - and nowhere is this more true than at Waverley Lodge, where our team care for a wide range of resident profiles. As with all Allegra Care homes, our first priority upon admission is the establishment of a personalised care plan in conjunction with the resident and their family / carers. This plan is then regularly monitored, reviewed and adapted to ensure it continues to fully address all resident needs over time.
