Hi, my name is Amabele, and I am the General Manager here at Emily Jackson House. Welcome to our website!
I have a B.Sc in Nursing and have been working in elderly care for many years. I am highly experienced in frail nursing, palliative and complex ementia care. Before joining Barchester, I was managing an outstanding rated care home.
I am excited for the new challenges ahead and I am looking forward to sharing my expertise. Being highly passionate about care standards, I am extremely proud to be working for a company who shares the same values.
I am very proud of my contributions to achieving an outstanding CQC rating at my last job, and I have made this my greatest vision for Emily Jackson House. I also pride myself on ensuring staff achieve their full potential and to have seen many in my team progress in their careers has been truly fulfilling for me. As the saying goes: 'Great Leaders accelerate the dreams of their followers'.

I always aim for an outstanding outcomes in everything, and also expect this from my team. I love my residents and they are at the centre of what I do.
I am a registered nurse with a genuine passion for care. I have more than 17 years of experience working in the health & social care sector, particularly in nursing homes and hospital settings. I am very dedicated and hardworking and I always go above and beyond my role as a unit manager.
The residents are at the heart of everything that I do, and there's nothing more satisfying for me than seeing residents and their loved ones happy. I carry out assessments, ensuring a person-centred approach to the care they receive.
I am a people person who always maintains a good working, professional relationship with staff, residents and their loved ones. As the saying goes: 'A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way."
