Sarah Kingsley

Registered Manager

My name is Sarah, and I am the Registered Manager at Cedar House. I have been working with Key 2 Care Ltd since November 2019 and during this time I have had line management responsibility at another Extra Care site called Parkland View. I have also been working in connection with Kelly, the On Site Care Manager, so I am familiar with Cedar House, and the residents and staff. My previous experience includes management of community services, and working in acute and residential care settings. I thoroughly enjoy my role with Key 2 Care Ltd, where alongside Kelly and the team,  I am highly committed to making a difference to the lives of the people we support at Cedar House.
