Hi, my name is Jing and I am the General Manager here at Bloomfield care centre.

Elder care has always been a passion of mine and I was lucky enough to join the team at Bloomfield in Nov 2021; before this I was an Operations Manager for Barchester in Bristol.

At Bloomfield we are focused on offering the very best care and support to our residents. We believe that to be trusted to care for your loved ones is a real privilege and honour. 

When I'm not at Bloomfield, I enjoy taking day trips, meeting new people and listening to music - thankfully all of these are key elements of the life enrichment programme at Bloomfield and our Activities calendar is full of opportunities to socialise and enjoy each day to the full.
