A note from us...

Megan Joynes, Payroll and Admin Assistant  – admin@landermeads.com / 0115 9683888

I joined the Landermeads team over a year ago now. I have 18 years’ experience working in reception and administration roles. At Landermeads I manage recruitment, the new starter process and administration. I value the support i receive in my role and I especially enjoy the contact with family members.

 

Maggie Lodge, Payroll Manager – maggie@landermeads.commaggie.lodge@nhs.net / 0115 9683888

I have worked at Landermeads for 10 years now. I have over 30 years’ experience in both payroll and personnel in other sectors prior to joining Landermeads. My role is to manage and oversee the payroll department, ensuring pay is processed correctly and on-time. I’m also here to support staff with all matters relating to their contracts. I enjoy the everyday challenges that payroll queries bring. I love my work and the people I work with.

 

Lisa Haywood, Office Manager – lisa@landermeads.comlisa.haywood1@nhs.net / 0115 9683888

I have worked in admin for over 27 years starting out on an apprenticeship scheme completing RQF’s in Administration, Customer Service and IT.  I first started working for Landermeads back in 2005 supporting the younger adults in Catherine Tam House. I left for a few years to start a family and soon came back to Landermeads being here for 13 years now. I started supporting family living in Lander and Stoppard House where I also studied for my RQF Level 2 in Health and Social Care.  For the past 9 years I have taken on the role of Office Manager. My role includes overseeing the IT systems/software support, GDPR and staff training. My Mamma and mother-in-law have both been part of the Landermeads family and lived with a dementia so I know how important the ethos of support is and have seen how it makes a difference. I love what I do as I get to spend time with some of the special family that live at Landermeads as well as work with a committed and passionate staff team.

We are all vulnerable at times

Coming to live in one of our houses or supported living can mean leaving behind the things which have made us secure.

We believe that quality of life comes from understanding our shared vulnerability and working together as a family in which we celebrate who you are.
