Jilu Stephen

General Manager

Hi, my name is Jilu, and I am the General Manager here at Edingley Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I am a nurse by profession and completed my nursing studies in India. I moved to UK in 2010. Since then, I have worked in the health and social care setting. I started my career in the UK as a health care assistant and I joined the Nursing and Midwifery Council. I have also worked as a registered nurse in a number of nursing and care homes. I have experience in supporting and assisting residents with many complex mental health needs. I am very passionate and honest towards my role.

I joined with Barchester in 2019 as a bank nurse, and worked as Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead for a year. I am now at Edingley Lodge as General Manager, responsible for running this beautiful home, building a strong relationship with my residents, their loved ones and the community.

I am very proud to be with a team, who go above and beyond to ensure a safe comfortable place for our residents to enable them to enjoy their life.
