General Manager

Debra Roose

I am grateful to be working for Signature- Wimbledon where I am able to bring along 34 years of experience managing care homes. I initially started my career 1976 as a care assistant within social care and by 1979 I was a training nurse at Broadgreen Hospital. Once gaining my qualification in 1981 I worked at Alder Hey Hospital as a Neo-Natal nurse within the surgical unit. In 1984 an opportunity arose in the family business of residential care and for 23 years I was the registered manager of a residential care for the elderly. By 2005 I had worked towards getting my Registered Manager Award and being qualified as an NVQ assessor. Over time I gained a great reputation as I was motivating my team to develop through the right training and ensure they were valued through recognition. Having worked in Cardiff for the past 6 years I have developed my skills further and for an interim period, I was the company’s Operation Support Manager in England. I worked closely with the Operations Team to ensure high standards were fulfilled in all areas including the Clinical and Person-centred care. In 2017 I was very proud to be awarded Manager of the Year 2017. I have seen many changes over the years in care and have developed a passion for enabling my team to deliver outstanding person-centred care for residents

Residence Experience Manager

I am the Residence Experience Manager of Signature of Wimbledon. Prior to joining, I was with the Metropolitan Hotel, Park Lane in London.
I have a postgraduate qualification in Hospitality Management and I believe I bring passion, creativity and style to my role.
Coming to a care home environment was challenging, but offered tremendous opportunities and I was confident that I could improve the quality of our residents’ lifestyles with my background in luxury hotels.
