Jo Head

General Manager

Hello, my name is Jo and I am the General Manager here at Ritson Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I have worked in varying aspects of healthcare for over 22 years; within NHS, county councils and charitable organisations. Over the last 19 years I have managed a variety of nursing homes and my most recent role was as a regional director.  

I am particularly passionate about dementia care – ensuring that people living fulfilled lives. I love the role of activities and see it as an integral part of the home. Ritson Lodge is a lovely care home and I am really looking forward to working with the team and local area to ensure that the home is part of the Hopton Village community - engaging in local events and supporting the local community.
