Married for nearly 30 years, Tracy has 4 grown up children whom she is very proud of. She is grateful that they live close by so she can see them often. Family is very important to Tracy. Having lost both her parents she looked to the family she had at Ellenborough to have someone to care for, nurture and protect and is now looking forward to embracing our Winscombe Hall team and our residents in the same way.
“I feel privileged to be trusted by our residents here,” says Tracy. “I also feel privileged to be supported by Cedars Care Group and respected by our staff. I’m lucky to work in such a lovely home.”
