Anna Rizza Senir

General Manager

Hi, my name is Anna and I am the General Manager here at Newton House.

I came to England in 2006 and started my career in care soon after. I am a nurse by profession. Previous roles include: Senior Carer, Unit Manager, Deputy Manager and Registered Manager. I have a wide range of knowledge and experience in care and the management of nursing, residential, dementia, and elderly frail services.

It is wonderful being able to work for a company that really cares and values people, a company that will be able to deliver, practice and show ethos, a company that will support and develop individuals to their best potential.
