Andy Buttimer

General Manager

Hello. My name's Andy and I am the General Manager here at Lakeside. Welcome to our website.

I’ve been working as a registered mental health, and general health nurse since 1992, more recently becoming an independent nurse prescriber. Having trained with the NHS in London, I moved to Jersey, intending to stay for a short period however 27 years later I’m still here. My focus as General Manager is very much about the resident, and ensuring that all residents receive the very best care that they deserve. It is my privilege to work with, and for, the residents at Lakeside Care Home, and to lead a team of staff that are dedicated to assisting residents to live a fulfilled life.
