Meet the Manager

Lissy Verghese, Care Home Manager

Welcome to our beautiful Edwardian Country House in the middle of Ashdown Forest close to Uckfield, East Sussex.

We pride ourselves on having a warm, welcoming and homely environment, with beautiful safe outside spaces. We support individuals with a high standard of care, including 24-hour nursing care. This enables the people we support to live their lives with dignity.

After gaining my nursing qualifications in India, I moved to Wales and began my career in care as a nurse. I moved to Coniston Court 10 year ago, achieving my level 5 in Health & Social Care Management along the way. Following a short space in time as a nurse at the home, I progressed to the position of deputy manager then finally to home manager in 2014.

I believe that having a passion for caring for others and ensuring individuals are treated with respect and dignity are the key foundations for great care. As a team we work hard to support our residents to live the most normal and fulfilling lives possible, and we do so as one big happy family.

I’m incredibly proud of my team. We have an excellent working relationship and the support for each other makes each day at Coniston Court special!


E.D. (Daughter of Resident)

Two visits post lockdown in the garden. Well organised, staff attentive, Mum even had her sunglasses on. Being her birthday, staff came out to celebrate with cake and candles and took photos which I received. Very caring towards Mum who responded positively to all the attention. Thank you for making
it a special occasion for her.
