Our Management Team

TerraGlen Residential Care Services is managed by a Board of Directors.

Two senior colleagues support them in this role. They are responsible for the management of the organisation and, ultimately, for the quality of service delivery provided by the teams in each of our houses.

  • Our Director of Services, Bernie Breen, has full oversight of all aspects of the day-to-day management of TerraGlen Residential Care Services.
  • Our Directer of Operations, Vivian Molloy, is responsible for operational services and line-manages our Centre Managers. Vivian ensures that all residential centres operate to the highest standard and in compliance with legislation, regulation, national standards and our organisation’s policies and procedures.
  • Both Bernie and Vivian are responsible for monitoring and auditing our operational services to ensure compliance and promote operational excellence. They manage our central records and liaise with the Centre Managers to ensure that all staff records are up to date and of a high standard.
