Flora Cardoso, House Manager

The best care plan begins with the right people. That’s why, at Manchester Place Care Homes, we hire the most qualified and compassionate professionals to care for you and your loved ones.

Take Flora Cardoso, for example. A genuine and kindhearted part of the Manchester family, Flora was inspired to enter the healthcare field as she observed the care of her own loved ones. Recognizing that more could be done, she wanted to provide a much higher level of care than that currently available. She also knew she wanted to make a real and positive difference in people’s lives.

Flora is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who has worked in the medical field since 2000 and at Manchester Place Care Homes as our House Manager since 2012. Her top priority is ensuring a positive experience at every moment, working directly with our residents and their families to build a trusted bond based on mutual respect.

What advice does she offer someone struggling with the emotions associated with an aging parent or family member? Take a deep breath, she’ll tell you, and take everything one step at a time. “It’s always a difficult decision,” she says. “But there are so many positive benefits to assisted living – especially within a smaller environment as opposed to a larger facility.” Manchester Place Care Homes provides that kind of attentive tightknit family atmosphere, with everyone bringing something unique to our resident’s lives. “It’s not just a job,” she says. “It really is our passion.”

She’s found that the types of questions families might have can differ with each situation. So she takes a personal and individualized approach, providing truthful answers and fostering strong and trusted partnerships along the way. What does she find most rewarding about her work? That would be her ability to put a smile on a resident’s face and knowing she’s making a genuine difference in the lives of those around her.

So why Manchester Place Care Homes? “There’s no comparison,” she said. “We go above and beyond for our residents. I could not have imagined working with such an excellent company.”
