The Sherwood House Team

At Sherwood House, we have a passionate and dedicated team focused on delivering outstanding dementia and frail elderly care. The team includes management, highly-trained and registered nursing and care staff, lifestyle co-ordinators, catering team and maintenance staff. We believe every member of the Sherwood House team plays a key role in ensuring we deliver the highest level of person-centred care.


Vicky Rabbatt

I joined Sherwood House Care Home in September 2017 having been Head of Operations within Quality Assurance for a domiciliary care agency. Prior to that I worked within the care industry since leaving school. When I started at Sherwood House I felt privileged to be able to upgrade my skills and develop to my full potential having been promoted to Manager. I feel that my caring team aim to provide a “home from home” for our residents, whilst still striving for professional excellence. I hope that I am able to give families peace of mind that their loved ones are treated with dignity and respect in a warm, loving, fun environment.

Melanie Sadler RN RMA

I am a Registered Nurse with 20 years of experience in the management of care homes for older people and have an enthusiasm for providing the quality of life our residents deserve. I am able to draw on this experience to promote the skills, understanding and knowledge of our staff. I also believe that we need to provide fun, happiness and laughter to our residents to enhance their day to day lives.

I joined Asprey Healthcare in March 2020 as Director of Operations. My role is to oversee both of our homes; Sherwood House and Smallbrook Care Home, providing support to both teams of staff, ensuring our residents always receive the highest standards of care and attention. I am proud of the teams and the excellent care they provide, always putting the residents at the forefront of all they do.
