Daniel Sabau, Manager

“I have worked in the Care Sector since 2012. After beginning my career in care, I quickly realised that I was making a positive change in the lives of those people I looked after, which is so rewarding and something no other job was – and still is – able to provide.

I have been with Friends of the Elderly for nearly three years, becoming the Care Home Manager at New Copford Place in August 2020. I have a great team and we work closely together to ensure each resident is supported, inspired and receives the highest level of bespoke care which is tailored to their individual needs.

Our wide and varied activities programme is created through listening to our residents’ preferences, likes, hobbies and interests as making a positive difference to all our residents’ lives is at the heart of all we do, every day. All the Team gets involved and I’ve even been known to join in with the singing and dancing sessions.

The best thing about being the Care Home Manager at New Copford Place is seeing our residents smiling, as it makes me feel that I have, in some small way, contributed a little bit to that smile.”


Fees are based on an assessment of your individual care needs and will be calculated following a visit. Our fees at New Copford Place start from £1,370 per week.

This is a truly wonderful place to live. I came here for respite care several times and could not wait to get in here permanently
