Adam Thompsett

Registered Manager

I have always had a passion in providing good quality care to individuals who need care and support.  The best part of what I do is making a difference to people’s lives and getting to know the residents and their loved ones individually.

I first started working in care at the age of 18 in 2005. I have completed my NVQ 2 and NVQ 3 in Health and Social Care and have also completed a Level Two Leadership Course.  In early 2023 I started my NVQ5 in Health and Social Care.

My introduction to healthcare began as a carer and I eagerly worked my way up to being a senior, which involved leading a team of care staff and making sure the home and residents were safe – and that everyone’s needs were suitably taken care of.  My promotion to a leadership role came after working as a senior carer for several years. I oversaw all of the care staff, the service users and made sure that senior’s responsibilities were carried out – as well as supporting the management team.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy working within in many different fields of the care sector, including care homes, nursing homes, adults with learning disabilities and a mental health hospital for 5 years.

Feeling ready to step into management, I started working as a Deputy Manager at Beulah Lodge in 2020. My tenure here progressed into the Registered Manager position in late 2022.  It’s my hope to be here for many years to come because I enjoy meeting people and all of the time that I spend with my residents.

Helena Aldred

Deputy Manager

I’m 48 years old and have ten years of experience working within the care industry. Prior to joining Beulah Lodge, I previously worked as a community carer, which I really enjoyed, and later in mental health care.  Here I had the opportunity to progress to a senior level and finish my NVQ 3, as well as to complete my Mental Health Aid Level 2.  With a lot of hard work, I was later promoted to the role of Deputy Manager.

I joined Beulah Lodge June 2023 as Deputy Manager to support the Registered Manager.  My tasks involve helping to oversee the home and residents needs and to lead & assist the carers.  I like to ensure that our wonderful residents preferences are respectfully met and that they are at the very centre of the best care delivery process possible.  My favourite part of the job is getting to know the people that are here and I take great pride in ensuring that they are all well looked after.
