Carol Dyke – Home Manager

Staff at Southlands Life Care


We’re really proud that Southlands is known locally as a terrific place to work at.

We whole-heartedly believe our staff is second to none. Largely local, our team members are characterised by their knowledge, friendliness, outstanding commitment to care, and long service at Southlands.

At the helm is State Registered Nurse, Carol Dyke, who has been a nurse for more than three decades. She’s been at Southlands for 15 years and is well-beloved by her team, our residents and Carol oversees five senior carers, our team of carers, cooks, housekeepers and an activities coordinator. Many hold NVQ Level 2 and 3 qualifications, and all have undertaken the specialist Care Certificate.

We know how valuable good staff are so we work hard to retain our best and most dedicated people by treating them fairly, recognising and rewarding great work, helping them continue their professional education and providing them with a career path they can be proud of and stimulated by.

In addition, we employ handymen and gardeners as well as other professionals to keep the home safe and running smoothly for you.
