The Team

What truly makes our homes are the wonderful, highly trained staff we employ


Janine May, Home Director of Pine Martin Grange

Home Director of Pine Martin Grange

I have over 30 years of experience supporting older people who have varying needs including Nursing, Physical Frailty, Mental Health or those ladies and gentleman living with Dementia, working my way up from a care assistant to care management. I have been awarded the South West Care Home Manager of the year at The Great British Care Awards in 2014.

I started working to achieve my Care in the Community badge as a Girl Guide. I have a Registered Managers Award, NVQ level 4, City & Guild Foundation Certificate in Community Care, as well as a Diploma in Elderly Care. I also have the NVQ Assessors Award. I have managed Care Homes since 1999, which includes turning around poor performing Homes to achieve a Good rating from The Care Quality Commission. I have also trouble-shooted Homes to turn them around including inducting and training up incoming Home Managers.

I am very passionate and love my role; I love a new challenge and have a strong drive to succeed. I am enthusiastic and display commitment. I demonstrate and lead by example. I direct, support and manage individuals to stimulate a positive "Person Centred“ culture. I believe that a Home should work within a larger team structure, where ALL teams show the same empathy and understanding whilst providing good quality care in a homely atmosphere.

My absolute belief is that all our ladies and gentlemen who live in our Care Homes are individuals, with their own individual experiences of life, their own needs and feelings, likes and dislikes. They deserve the best, the opportunity to lead fulfilled lives, be part of, be amongst, an opportunity to live their life the way they choose.

I have over 10 years’ experience of working in the care sector, 7 of these years as a home manager predominantly supporting people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions and a range of additional complex needs including neurological conditions.

I was delighted to join the Pine Martin Grange team and since day one I have felt that its an amazing place to work and a great place for our residents to call home. I thoroughly enjoy working alongside such a dedicated and experienced team who always go above and beyond to make sure that we provide the best quality of care and make a real difference by promoting a positive person centred experience.

When families first visit Pine Martin Grange, I am the first point of contact. I understand how difficult and emotional it can be to move a loved on in to care and her role is to guide and support you with making that decision. I work closely in the local community and is part of the dementia friendly Purbeck group and is a recognised Dementia Friends Champion.

I love being able to make a difference and see our residents thrive as they begin a new life at Pine Martin Grange.

Shirley Green, Home Administrator of Pine Martin Grange

Home Administrator of Pine Martin Grange

I live in Wareham with my Husband and Son. My background is predominantly in Healthcare, although I have also spent a number of years in both the Oil and Construction Industry as Admin Manager/Office Manager and PA/Secretarial roles.

I worked at our local Community Hospital in Wareham for over 15 years, as Admin Manager/PA to Matron/Medical Secretary/Volunteer Co-ordinator. I very much enjoy working in a healthcare environment, and get a great sense of reward from being able to assist older people and enjoy their company.

I am very happy to have joined the wonderful team at Pine Martin Grange.
