LifeCare Residences, a luxury retirement community operator with over 35 years’ experience, has appointed Cathe Gaskell as non-executive director.
Gaskell, who boasts almost 20 years’ spent working at board level, specialises in all aspects of management within healthcare, having overseen and advised on clinical governance provision across a number of care home environments and in a range of health organisations, within both the NHS and independent sector.
A Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) as well as a member of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), Gaskell has a BSc Hons in Professional Issues in Healthcare, alongside further qualifications in both counselling and management within healthcare.
The new director has held numerous roles as an independent board advisor since she set up her own company in 2009.
Gaskell commented: “My vision for care at LifeCare Residences is to make the experience of receiving care a joyful one, which is as individual and unique as each of the residents and the life stories they bring with them.”
Nigel Sibley, chief executive of LifeCare Residences, added: “Cathe’s appointment strengthens our commitment to providing a unique fusion of exemplary care and impeccable hospitality. As we continue to set new benchmarks in retirement living, her dedication to providing bespoke care and nursing enriches the depth of our operations.”
