Cecilia Thomson has been appointed care home manager at Encore Care Homes’ Fairmile Grange in Christchurch, Dorset.
Cecilia (pictured right) has worked in healthcare management for over 15 years in Sweden, the Middle East and the UK in various roles, including a previous care home management position in Cambridge. She also has a bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science and Nursing Science Education.
Cecilia said: “I’m delighted to be appointed as home manager at Fairmile Grange and I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to improve on the excellent standards here. My three main roles at Fairmile Grange will be to lead the home, make sure we have a strong internal team and to ensure residents are happy and feel like that they are at a home away from home.
“Getting to know our residents and working closely with the brilliant, passionate team of staff to identify new activities and wellbeing methods is my top priority. I fully recognise the value of introducing different therapy techniques, such as pet therapy, which has the ability to improve social interaction, reduce feelings of loneliness and boost a person’s general wellbeing.”
Fairmile Grange is an 80-bed care home in the grounds of Christchurch Hospital boasting state-of-the-art facilities and a stunning landscaped garden.
