Susannah Barker-Milan (pictured) has been appointed home manager at Country Court Care’s Swanholme Court Care Home in Lincoln this month. Susannah is also home manager at Eccleshare Court Care & Nursing Home in Lincoln, where she has led the care and nursing teams for three years.
“I am delighted that Susannah will be managing both of these care and nursing homes in Lincoln,” said Operations Director Helen Richmond. “Susannah is a highly respected and dedicated member of our team at Country Court, she has bought a wealth of knowledge and expertise and was key to implementing the ‘Enriched Dementia and Meaningful Opportunities Programme’ for our group. We believe in nurturing our staff and sharing best practice in the group to provide the very highest standards of care for our residents.”
Susannah has over 25 years of experience working in health and social care, spending the last 10 years specialising in dementia care. She has spent some of her career working with the renowned Bradford Dementia Group at the University of Bradford, leading on the ground-breaking Dementia Care Mapping in Supported Living project.

Susannah said: “I am passionate about delivering the very highest standards of person-centred care and I’m proud of the care my team provides at Eccleshare Court. I look forward to getting to know the residents and staff at Swanholme Court and sharing some of the best practice we have implemented at Eccleshare Court.”
