Meet The Team

Meet the team behind Eden Country Care

Diane Wharton (Care Supervisor)

Diane is an extremely popular and experienced member of staff. From a local farming family, she has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area and its local families, gets on really well with the older generation and is known for her bubbly and warm personality. She came to Eden Country Care Ltd with lots of caring experience behind her, including work in a local nursing home and several years as a home-carer. Diane can always be relied on in a crisis to keep a cool head and make a calm decision on the best action to take and she always puts her client's interests first. Diane completed her NVQ2 in 2005 and was promoted to Care Supervisor. She has continued to improve her knowledge of the care setting by attending performance managment courses and has recently been awarded her NVQ 3 in care.

Heather Tarney (Care Manager/Director)

Heather is Erica's daughter and set off in the family business as soon as she had successfully finished her degree. Heather has been a key figure in the setting up of the administrative and training side of the business and is now the Care Manager of the company. She has a level 4 NVQ in care managment and has completed the NVQ Assessors award.

Alison Nicholson (Care Worker)

Alison joined the team in 2005 after previously working withchildren. She soon became a well respected member of staff who gives 100% to the clients she cares for. She even helps one client to do their shopping on her day off! Her experience and dedication are immediately obvious in the improvement in the level of care she achieves within a few weeks of attending a new client. Alison can be completely relied on as she very rarely has a day off sick and can get out to work no matter what the weather as she drives a big four-wheel drive vehicle!

Sally Sobbart (Care Worker)

Sally joined us a few months ago after being made redundant from Woolworths in Keswick. She is a real "people" person and has demonstrated a natural ability in care work as well as proving completely reliable and hard-working. In just a few months she has made a real impression with the clients who now wonder how they ever managed without her. She has recently been awarded with the National Vocational Qualification in Health and Social Care.
