After graduating in 2014, she moved to Shropshire to work for a private employer within the care sector and completed a placement on the NMC Overseas Nursing Programme to become a registered nurse.
It was here Rhea found her passion for working with older people and she quickly transitioned to become senior nurse and then deputy before moving into the management team, working as the clinical governance and innovation manager for several large homes.
In her previous role, she was responsible for achieving the GSF accreditation for end-of-life care and was responsible for formulating new policies in relation to Covid-19.
Now proud manager of Montgomery House, a purpose-built home and Coverage Care’s largest home, Rhea leads a committed and compassionate team of carers, nurses, caterers and domestic staff.

Where can I find funding advice?
We know how complex the means-tested funding position in terms of UK social care is.
If you have assets, assessed by social services above £23,250 in England then it is likely that you will need to fund all of the accommodation care and support costs under current UK legislation. We will be clear on what our fees are on admission.
If you have assets below £23,250 then the Local Authority may fund part or potentially all of your accommodation care and support. Prior to admission we will need to be advised of the fee to determine whether or not the Local Authority contribution is adequate enough to cover the full fees. We appreciate this is sensitive and we talk to you and social services colleagues prior to admission.
It is important to understand each person is different in terms of both their needs and funding position. Whilst we cannot give funding advice we will be clear on your fees and charges. You can also find a wealth of information via Age UK or Age Concern https://www.ageuk.org.uk/
Where can I find more information on dementia?
Dementia affects everyone differently and we can talk to you directly about issues or concerns you might be facing. Alternatively, the Alzheimer’s Society has a wealth of information available on its website https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/
