Maycroft Manor Say Hello to the Team

Nicola Palladino

General Manager
Responsible for the smooth running of the home

As a registered nurse and former inspector of adult social care, I have managed and run care homes for more than 20 years.

I am dedicated to creating caring communities where everyone has a purpose and is appreciated. I believe that our homes are shaped by the people who live and work in them and that everyone has a contribution to make. I feel incredibly proud and lucky to be the General Manager and am looking forward to making my own contribution to the future of Maycroft Manor.

Advisor for prospective new residents & their families

After a career break and having 3 beautiful daughters, I took a part time admin job in a local care home. I instantly fell in love with working in a care home environment and have never looked back.

I have worked for Hallmark for 5 years now and have worked my way up to the role I am in today.

Maycroft Manor is such an exciting, vibrant and special home to live and work in, that it is never a chore to go to work. As soon as you set foot in the door the wonderful homely atmosphere embraces you. The care we provide and the lifestyles programme is just outstanding and we love to throw a good party too!

I absolutely love learning about residents and their amazing lives before they even move into our home and I consider myself incredibly lucky and privileged to help people, often at a difficult time in their lives. My role is to guide people through care options and funding, you may however also see me dressed up from time to time as I like to be involved in the shows and performances we produce at Maycroft Manor!
