High Brake House is a real family affair. We (Hannah Townson and Mark Brierley) are sister and brother. We purchased the home back in 2003 with our parents David and Kathleen.
New to the care industry, we armed ourselves with Level 4 qualifications in Care, the Registered Manager’s Award, and the existing manager’s wealth of knowledge (she even taught us how to make a bed).
Our first task as new owner-managers was some serious DIY. It was all hands on deck building the first of four extensions. Our vision was to create a place where people would truly feel at home and enjoy generous living spaces and bedrooms with ensuite wetrooms.
The last structural addition was completed in 2017. Mark’s fantastic vision, his wife Liz’s interior design skills and Hannah’s eye for detail have resulted in the home we dreamed of creating.
As High Brake House has grown, our families have too. Hannah got married, waved off from High Brake by the residents, and in 2013 they waved hello to her new baby girl. Mark married Liz, who keeps our office in check, and they have two beautiful boys. Our residents love to see the children when they drop in.
We are immensely proud of what we’ve created. Its fabric, and the fantastic staff that work so hard with us to make High Brake House a home.
We welcome you to come and stay for a while. Soak up the atmosphere, see how you feel, and discover how our family can care for you and yours.
