Meet the Northleach Court Team

Northleach Court is a friendly community of highly qualified professional carers and Dementia care specialist carers that aim to improve the wellbeing and happiness of our residents’ at all times.

Our carers deliver quality care and support to whoever needs a helping hand 24 hours a day. 

Northleach Court Private Care Home was acquired by Zo & Geoff Butcher in February 2019. Together with daughter Hannah and son Mike, both in their mid 30’s, they run a number of other care homes as a true family business. 

Plans are underway for extensive refurbishment, modernisation and redecoration of the home ensuring we meet the needs and aspirations of our residents and their families.


Registered Manager

Mandy has over 20 years’ experience as a Registered Manager and takes pride in ensuring the homes that she works with offer the care that she would want for her own relatives.

Mandy started her career as a carer and worked her way up the ladder. This has given her a true understanding of all the challenges her team may be facing, and helps her to emphasise with them and guide them in making a difference.

It is important to Mandy to build relationships with both the residents and their relatives, so she can build a full picture of their needs and expectations, and ensure high quality care with dignity.

Mandy’s passion is ensuring that every resident feels at home and her family always play a part in this, whether that be visiting on Christmas Day dressed as elves to deliver gifts, singing karaoke with the residents, or arranging for extra assistance for home projects or activity days within the home using their military connections. Laughter in life is a necessity.

From everyone at Northleach, we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our family.

Clinical Lead


Senior Carer

Laura has worked in the care industry for over 20 years in many different roles. She holds an NVQ 2 and 3 in health and social care. Laura has recently started a Level 5 in leadership and management, organised by Northleach Court.

Laura loves to work with the older generation and strives to help them maintain their independence for as long as possible. She aims to create a happy and safe environment for all residents and staff.

Laura grew up with her Nan as a major influence in her life, who spent many happy years working here when it was a hospital, so in some ways Laura feels like she is following in her Nan’s footsteps. Laura always tries to treat individuals who are in her care with the same respect and love as she would expect for her Nan.

Laura loves care! No two days are the same. Every day is like a new adventure.



Michelle is our administrator here at Northleach Court and does a great job of keeping all admin in order and is very organised!



geoff butcher owner of northleach court dementia care specialist homeWe 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

hannah henderson of northleach court dementia care specialist homeI 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

michael butcher owner of northleach court dementia care specialist homeMy 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.
