What attracted Lisa to the post was New Care’s reputation for excellent care, she said:
“I had heard about New Care’s absolute focus on individual care and attention for each of its residents across all of its homes and its commitment to developing its employee team and am so proud to have joined such a forward thinking and caring business.
“I love working in care, especially with the elderly and aim to delight our residents each day with an exciting activity or excursion that gets them talking, engaging and socialising with each other and our team of carers. We want to fill each day with smiles and laughter.”
Chief operating officer at New Care, Cath Fairhurst, commented: “Lisa is a valuable addition to our great team at Grosvenor Manor. In the short time she has been with us, she has made a great impression on our residents and their families who are always delighted with her well planned programme of events, activities and days out.”
