Damon Drummond

General Manager

Welcome to Bloomfield's website; my name is Damon and I am the General Manager here.

I started my working career in sales/account management working in different sectors, such as logistics, domestic appliances and IT. I got to a stage in my life where I felt I needed to give back to my community, so I began working for the NHS, supporting people with learning disabilities for just under 6 years, finishing in the post of Support Manager, where I oversaw a team of managers working in over 10 different services.

I started working in care homes in 2014, which is when I first became a Registered Manager, and have worked for Bupa, Gracewell Healthcare and Brighterkind. This came as a direct result of seeing how my own grandmother was not treated with dignity and respect whilst in hospital. I have a strong history of turning homes around, engaging staff teams, initiating change and ensuring the residents live a meaningful life.

I believe in building open and honest relationships with residents, relatives and anyone who visits the home. My door is always open, so please feel free to pop in for a chat or a cup of tea.
