The Abbeyfield Maidenhead Society is run by an Executive Team and a General Manager, Janet Fevrier.
“I joined this wonderful Society as General Manager in May 2018. In the 4 years prior I was Chief Executive Officer for a carer’s charity providing respite provision to carers.
Over the last 25 years, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience having worked my way up through different departments across statutory services, from Partnership and Planning Officer within Adult Social Care for Surrey County Council, Health Promotion Manager for North Surrey PCT and Associate Director for Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust.
I work with very professional, well-trained and caring teams across both Winton House and Nicholas House. Who all strive to provide the best possible care, tailored to meet the resident’s needs, aimed at maintaining their individuality and independence.”

Winton House Team
Our team of professional and friendly staff at Winton House comprise of a Registered Manager of the Home, Deputy Manager of the Home, Senior Care Staff, Care Assistants and Domestic staff.
“I have been working in the care industry for 28 years since leaving school. I have a deep love and affection for our older generation and I am passionate about being a part of a service that delivers exceptional care. I have worked for the Abbeyfield Maidenhead Society for 7 years and can honestly say that it is an honour and privilege to work for such a caring organisation. I became a registered manager in January 2013, where I have developed my knowledge and learning skills which include a QCF Level 5 in Residential Management. I am also passionate about developing my staff to their best potential, with effective training and support. I have three beautiful children and one grandson. As a family we all love to take part in Amateur Dramatics, I have a love for singing and also belong to a local church in Windsor.”
Donna Bristow – Registered Home Manager
“I have worked in the care industry for over 25 years, both in Ireland and the U.K. and have gained a lot of experience in different types of homes and hospitals. I joined Winton House in October 2011 as a carer and soon after was promoted to Senior. I enjoy my work and find it very rewarding. Our home is very welcoming and homely, and we have a very caring team of people. I was lucky enough to be offered a new role as Deputy Manager in April 2018, which I accepted and have started studying for my level 5 in Health and Social Care, and I am looking forward to growing and developing my role.”

Nicholas House Team
Our team of professional and friendly staff at Nicholas House comprise of a Registered Manager of the Home, Deputy Manager of the Home, Senior Care Staff, Care Assistants and Domestic staff.
“I have worked in care all my life, first in the Royal Air Force where I trained as a State Enrolled Nurse. After leaving the R.A.F. I started working in elderly care and enjoyed it so much I have been doing it ever since. I worked my way up from carer to Manager over the years and have been a manager since 1999. This is the third home I have managed. I have my level 4 in Management and a Registered Managers award. Nicholas House is a lovely home to work in, it is relaxed and welcoming and I have a staff team that work very hard to ensure our Residents are happy and well cared for by caring, motivated staff.”
Shirley Fairley – Registered Home Manager
“I have been working in care for the last 15 years. I started off in Home Care, which I found rewarding but wanted to do more and have more time with Residents. When Nicholas House opened it was time to make that move. I started here as a Care Assistant doing days and nights and worked my way up to Senior Carer, then care Supervisor which gave me the opportunity to pass on my experience to the new staff.
I was then offered the post of Deputy Manager in April 2018. I enjoy my job – we have a good staff team here and all work well together.”
