Pamela Mauchaza

General Manager

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

I am a qualified nurse, trained at the Royal London hospital, where I worked briefly before joining the private sector. My passion lies with community and care homes and I have extensive management experience as a home manager and care consultant.

I am proud to be part of the team here at Ritson Lodge and to work for Barchester. My team and I are dedicated to making each day different and special for residents. The care we deliver is person-centred, ensuring that individual needs and requirements are met and that residents retain as much independence as possible with support to continue pursuing the interests and hobbies they have always enjoyed.

Angela Williams

Head of Memory Lane

Hi, my name is Angela and I am the Head of Memory Lane here at Ritson Lodge.

I started working here as a Senior Carer over 10 years ago when I relocated from York. I transferred over from a sister home. At Ritson Lodge, I was promoted to the position of Home Trainer and eventually completed my Care Practitioner Course to become the Head of Memory Lane.

My aim is to deliver exceptional care to those we support and inspire my team of dedicated Carers and Nurses to work towards the same high standards.

I am committed and very passionate about everything I do and believe in giving the residents lots of personal choices, as Ritson Lodge is their home, so they should have the right to decide what goes on here.

I love working here, as every day is different, but very rewarding.
