I joined Marnel Lodge as the Deputy Manager in 2015, and that is where my journey at Barchester began – and I am proud to say that I am now the General Manager!
I love working at Marnel Lodge and for Barchester; I believe it is a fantastic company to work for. I am very fortunate to work with such a hardworking and dedicated team, which makes Marnel Lodge feel like a family home.
I have worked in a variety of settings in a number of roles, including supporting people living with dementia and those with mental health issues, in addition to adults with learning disabilities. This has given me a rounded experience and has helped me in leading the team because I have the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with them.
Currently, I am studying towards my NVQ Level 5 qualification in Leadership & Management and will look to top this up to a full degree in Leadership & Management in Health & Social Care. I am relishing the challenge this presents and enjoy widening my knowledge, which in turn benefits both the residents and the team.
My passion is to ensure that those we support are provided with the very best care from our staff at Marnel Lodge. We endeavour to deliver that 'home from home' feeling here.
Our doors are always open, so feel free to come in for a cup of tea, cake or a chat.
Jo oversees the day to day administration to ensure that everything runs smoothly at Marnel Lodge. Jo Loves to interact with the residents and the residents' families on a daily basis.
I have been a nurse for over 20 years and have been here at Marnel Lodge since 2015. I want only the best and highest standards of care for residents and believe that team work is an important key in doing this. In June 2018, a case study of mine was published in the International Journal of Palliative Nursing, which you can read here.
