Alison McIntosh

Alison McIntosh

General Manager

I am accountable for the overall running of the home and am a registered manager with the care quality commission. I am supported by Heads of Department who have responsibility for various aspects of running the home.

I am a very experienced professional manager who joined Lynde House two years ago. My background is in hospital management but my keen interest in care home management arose from both working with older people in the hospital setting and when I had to look for a care home for my own mother in 2011.
