Where to find us

Meet some of the team

Clinical staff nurse – Katie Lindgren

Katie Lindgren clinical staff nurse.jpg“I have now been working as a staff nurse at the Willows for just over two years after working for the previous six years in nursing homes. I applied for a job after hearing the amazing reviews from the staff and the community who always talk so highly about the care that is given at the Yeatman. 

"The Willows offers a great multidisciplinary team approach to all aspects of the care and support the staff to expand their own knowledge in other areas. We all work as a big team  with the ambition and aim for safety, comfort and happiness of the patients whether it be when organising someone's discharge home, change of living arrangements or end of life care. 

"I am proud to tell people where I work and I’m lucky to say I love my job.”

Healthcare assistant – Christina Taylor-Cheney and Lorraine Squire

Christina Taylor-Cheney and Lorraine Squire.jpg“I joined The Willows Team approximately 18 years ago after caring in the community in Sherborne and Plymouth for quite a few years before. My parents were local and coming from a huge local family they were always visiting relatives and friends.

"My dad's wishes was too spend his last days of life with all the staff on The Willows and his wishes was fulfilled making me even more proud to be part of a great caring team. Past memories are promoted with themed displays and notice boards enabling all staff to give comfort , love, care and compassion to all, not only for patients but their relatives , friends and of course our fellow work colleagues.

"I am due to retire in April 2023. I will leave but love my job so much that I am coming back on bank shifts .”
