We’re welcoming a whole host of new faces to Borough Care, as we say goodbye to some long-serving members of staff and congratulations to others as they embark on new and exciting roles across our homes.
It is with great sadness that we are saying goodbye to Amanda Ryder, who managed our Silverdale home and has been with Borough Care for over 18 years! We are sad to see you go, thank you for your years of dedication and service, and we wish you luck in your future endeavours!
Nerys Carpenter, who currently manages Shepley House, is also moving on to a new challenge… taking up the mantle of Area Manager, alongside Geraldine Blow. We’re very proud of Nerys and we love to promote home-grown talent wherever possible. With her enthusiastic nature and the esteem her colleagues already hold her in, we know she is going to bring so much to this role, supporting managers to be the best they can be.
Hayley Weston is continuing her unstoppable path up the Borough Care career ladder. Joining us as a Care Assistant 20 years ago, she has worked her way through the ranks to be named Home Manager of Lisburne Court. Hayley has taken advantage of every training opportunity offered to her and holds her NVQ level 2 and 3, as well as level 5 in Health and Social Care. Congratulations Hayley!
With so many changes, this means we’re welcoming some new faces to the team.
Tammie Love is the new manager of Wellcroft. She has over 20 years’ experience working in social care, helping vulnerable children, adults and elderly people. We know her caring nature will make her perfect for this role.
Rebecca Abrahams is the new manager of Shepley House. She began a career in care after taking some time out to look after her grandmother following a dementia diagnosis. Rebecca has worked in various different organisations, but always specialising in dementia care.
Finally, Damon Braithwaite will be taking over the reins, as Manager at Silverdale. He has a huge amount of experience, in many different aspects of caring, including independent living, supported living, complex needs, residential Autism services, Extra Care and Learning Disabilities Services.
Please say hello to all our new recruits when you see them in our homes. Our Managers’ are always happy to talk. You can find out more about our fresh faces by visiting Our Homes.
