Types of Care provided
“My mother has been in Archers Court for just over a year and has received nothing but 'first-rate' care and support. She is completely settled and accepting of support and activities which enhance her daily experiences. She declines any opportunity to leave the home, preferring to stay where she feels safe and secure. We are indebted to the staff for the quality of care and respect shown to my mother.”

Meet the Manager
Hello, my name is Sharon Easterbrook-Smith and I am the Home Manager at Archers Court Care Home. My passion for care started at a young age as I grew up living opposite a residential care home and used to visit the residents there often.
This inspired me to pursue a career in care and in 1988 I began my first role as a care assistant. I progressed to senior care assistant before becoming a manager and joining the Orchard family in 2018.
