Meet The Evendine House Team

Since 2014, Evendine House Residential Home has been a family run business.

Together we run several outstanding residential care homes that offer superlative care and services for a variety of needs. Our hard work, passion and dedication is reflected in all aspects of care at Evendine House. From the highly skilled and compassionate care team to the wonderful variety of delicious food and snacks – as a family, we oversee it all.

We want to provide the best quality care for all residents at Evendine House Private Care Home and recognise the importance of continual professional development and encourage all staff to stay up-to-date with the latest care approaches. In addition to the existing training currently available, we wish to invest in further training opportunities in the future to ensure that the care offered at Evendine House is always of the highest quality.

Our extremely talented and caring team have over 30 years of care knowledge and experience.

All members of our care team are fully qualified and passionate about what they do. We also have staff that are trained in providing specialist care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

All of our staff wear a uniform and the colour of this is reflective of their role at Evendine House. By doing this, residents and their families are able to identify members of staff and their responsibilities.

Duncan Riley


I joined Evendine house in January 2021. I enjoy having conversations with the residents as they all have a story to tell. My role at Evendine House is to maintain the home to a safe, secure and comfortable environment





We have owned and operated care homes since 1997; our passion for delivering great care and our zero tolerance for anything else has only grown year on year.

Our strapline “Because we care” is very real and, as individuals and a family, we get personally very upset if we fail to deliver anything less than brilliant care.

I am personally legally and, I feel, morally responsible for each and every home and its residents. If I am not visiting a home, I am in daily contact with the managers and their teams.

Our systems and processes are all geared to letting me and my directors know when things have not been done and providing information to enable us to constantly improve.

We never think “this is great and it’s good enough” – we always strive to do better.


Operations Director

I have been working in the business for nearly 15 years.

My job now is Operations Director supporting the managers and their staff teams to make sure that we maximise the overall wellbeing of each and every resident.

Unlike other homes, this is not just about making sure that there is no poor care, it is about instilling and maintaining a passion for excellence in everything we do. Part of my job is to ensure the smooth running of the homes with really fast purchasing so if a resident needs something it is in the home within hours, not days or weeks.

I am also responsible for the décor and maintenance of the homes and hopefully making sure they are homely and fulfil the wishes and aspirations of each individual resident and their relatives alike.


Finance Director

My role as Finance Director is to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the Care Home.

I am also responsible for Health & Safety, Data Protection and Information Technology. I regularly work from our Care Homes as it’s important to be hands-on, working with our teams to ensure that the necessities of regulation don’t detract from the demanding job of delivering great care.

Unlike many in the care industry, we are investing significantly in IT; we see it as an effective way of continually improving the quality of care and to continue to be more responsive to our resident’s and staff’ needs. Our systems tell us in real-time if things have not been done; Care is a 24/7 business and we work every hour necessary to ensure that issues are addressed immediately
