Hello, I'm Finlin

Finlin Martin 
Registered Nursing Care Home Manager

Freshford Cottage Nursing Home

I have been in nursing for over 25 years, qualifying as a Nurse and Midwife in 1993, and later specialising as a Theatre Nurse. I sadly lost my mother when she was only 67 and it was around that time that I became interested in caring for the elderly. I wanted to offer support and compassion to those going through a stage in their life where their health and well-being becomes fragile. I joined Freshford Cottage in 2015 and my Masters Degree in Management helped me support my team. I understand that a happy team results in happy residents and I’m always striving to improve the quality of care for my residents and their families.

what makes us special

Fresh by name, fresh by nature.

Freshford Cottage is all about fresh air and fresh ideas for our residents. Our most recent venture involves partnering with Cycling Without Age and giving our residents free rides along the coast in a tricycle-cab, known as a ‘trishaw’. We love helping our residents have new adventures, showing that there’s still plenty to do in your autumn years.
