Kim Whelan

General Manager

Hello, my name is Kim, and I am the General Manager here at Newlands. Welcome to our website!

I have worked for Barchester since January 2019. I relocated here to Workington from County Durham. I have been a registered nurse since 1982, and I have worked predominantly in the social sector in nursing and care homes. I have a special interest in working with people who are living with dementia.

Here at Newlands, we endeavour to enhance the lives of all of our residents. We are proud of the care we offer and would be delighted to show you around our home.

I would like to introduce to my lovely team, and look forward to meeting you.
