Andrea Goacher has been appointed manager of Jasmine Healthcare’s Southmoor Lodge Care Home in Walkeringham, Nottinghamshire.
Andrea has worked in the health and social care sector for almost 30 years, having worked as a nurse, Deputy Manager and Manager and latterly as an Operations Manager.
Andrea said: “I have known about Southmoor Lodge for a number of years, being very local to the home and I am looking forward to continuing to drive forward Southmoor Lodge and the team. I am also looking forward to making the home an active member of the local community.”
Martyn Heginbotham, Care and Operations Director for Jasmine Healthcare, stated: “I am really pleased that Andrea has joined the team. She has a great proven background in delivering great services, which are person centred and put the residents at the heart of what we do.”
Southmoor Lodge, which is currently undergoing a partial refurbishment, will also soon be welcoming a new activities leader. Additionally, the home is holding ‘don’t dine alone’ events where they invite vulnerable older people into the home for a free lunch and some light entertainment.
