Marie Smale’s Profile

I love to

I enjoy gardening and spending time outside in the countryside or by the sea. I was brought up on a farm in Suffolk and love animals of all kinds. I also enjoy watching a wide variety of birds that visit my garden. I like listening to all types of music and have been found on the dance floor on many occasions letting my hair down!


I commenced my Nurse training in 1985 at the age of 18 and have worked in a variety of health care settings including - Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Domiciliary and live-in care.

I am a qualified Psychiatric Nurse and have attended many different training courses to develop my skills across various areas.

I have worked at Catchpole Court Care Home for 6 and a half years - the last 2 of these years have been in my role as Home Manager.

I am passionate about

During my many years of working in the health care sector, I have developed a huge passion for working with the elderly. To listen to their life experiences always leaves me with an air of warmth.

The team here at Catchpole Court are like having another family. Everyone works here for the residents; ensuring they receive the highest standards of care. We always have a smile on our faces and enjoy our time spent at work.

I always do my utmost to make sure Catchpole Court is as homely as possible for the residents as it is their home after all - I feel privileged to work here.

What I like about working for FSHC

Four Seasons Health Care is a company keen to progress to provide excellent care everywhere. It is a very supportive company to both the needs of the residents and their employees.
