Sheela Nirmal

Acting General Manager

Hi, my name is Sheela and I am the Acting General Manager here at Newton House. Welcome to our website!

I joined the management team of Barchester as a Regional Support Manager, and I became the Acting General Manager at Newton House in December 2019, bringing with me 34 years of experience in the health & social care sector.

I am a dual-qualified nurse specialising in care for the elderly. I have also completed my Registered Manager Award and achieved the 'Train the Trainer' qualification, which allowed me to support my team even better at my previous care home.

I have first-hand experience caring for a relative living with dementia, and I am passionate about making a difference to the lives of residents living at Newton House.
