Tanya joined Bay House Care as the Head of Care in 2008. She began her career as a Care Assistant in the home where her mother was a manager.

Qualifying as a Registered Nurse allowed Tanya to take on that role with gusto.
Through her dedication, commitment and hard work Tanya was promoted to the role of Deputy Manager in January 2013.

Samia joined the team in 2012. Her working background has truly allowed herself to find the perfect role here at Bay House Care.

Her remit is to provide systems support to staff as well as offering high profile presence to residents, relatives and our external agencies. Samia is part of the management team and may well be the first person to greet you when you phone or call.
