Meet our Manager, Sheila Kelly

A Chartered Manager with a degree qualification in Health and Social Care, Sheila began her career as a care assistant over 30 years ago, working in Residential care settings and services specialising in Dementia care, before joining the team at Fleet Valley.

Sheila’s priority is to provide individuals with care in a safe environment where dignity is maintained, personal privacy respected and personal needs are fully met.  She is incredibly proud of Fleet Valley’s family feel and believes fun and laughter is a priority.

As a manager, Sheila enjoys training and coaching her staff, sharing information and knowledge from her experience and learning as a Dementia Champion. For Sheila, the true success of being a manager is measured in improving the lives of those around her, if you can help someone meet their goals, make them smile when they didn’t think they could, then that’s what truly counts.

Daughter of Resident

“My mum went into Fleet Valley for five day emergency respite care. The care Mum received during those five days was excellent and reassured my family that Mum would be well looked after and Fleet Valley was the right care home for Mum as her Dementia progressed. Mum was treated with the utmost respect and dignity during her stay.”

Daughter of Resident

“We have experienced kindness, professional, empathetic and informative attitudes from everyone who we speak to about my mum. Care staff show dignity and positivity in the way they provide person-centred work style.”
