James McElhinney

Home Manager


I have 40 years experience in The Health and Social Care sector, having realised through voluntary work early on, that I wanted to work with and support people.


Over the last 20 years, I have progressed through the ranks in Learning Disability Services to become a manager in positions such as: Support Worker, Service Manager, Area Manager, Divisional Director and Regional Director Southeast England. This was across the Private, Voluntary and Local Authority sectors On my journey, I have attained an array of sector specific qualifications.


TLC family’s values certainly match mine, and I am delighted to have found and been welcomed by this outcome-driven, professional work environment.


In my spare time, I enjoy Art, the Theatre, walking and travelling.

Hotel Services Manager

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. You meet various personalities, whether it be residents, relatives or team members and they all have their own story. They all teach us different things and have helped shape us into better people.

We have learnt to listen, to be kind and compassionate, to put ourselves in other people’s shoes and most of all to accept our weaknesses and find ways to make them into strengths.

Teamwork, Love and dedication is what makes Candlewood House extra special and unique.

The Candlewood House Team

Jordan Pereira

Jordan Pereira

I have been working in care homes since 2012 when I joined a large care group as a Registered General Nurse. I have since held several positions within the private and public healthcare sectors, including Hospital Clinical Bed & Site Manager, Regional Support Manager and Home Manager for a large care home provider and, recently, as the Registered Manager for a luxury care home and retirement community operator.


Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to complete a PgCert in Diabetes with the Ulster University and a MSc in Management and Leadership in Health and Social Care with the University of Cumbria.


As a values-driven Home Manager, embedding TLC’s values of Truth, Lovel and Compassion are very important to me. A positive culture, embedded values and shared purpose are key components of our everyday life here at Candlewood House. I am delighted to be part of the TLC Care Family and to be leading a highly experienced and motivated team at Candlewood House.
