Hi, my name is Rosalynn, and I am the General Manager here at Southerndown Care Home. Welcome to our website!
I joined the Southerndown team in May 2021 having been the deputy at our sister home in Tewkesbury prior to their closure for full refurbishment. I've worked as a movement clerk for the British Army before deciding to career change and become a nurse. I have been qualified since 2015 and have worked within the care industry for over 11 years, working within the NHS as a staff nurse at Gloucester Royal and Bristol Royal Infirmary, before joining Barchester Healthcare in 2019.
Since joining Barchester I have worked in several homes and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience. I believe we can all learn something new each day and should always strive for excellence in all we do; to keep improving and evolving. I am looking forward to getting to know our residents more and supporting the Southerndown team. This is such a beautiful home and great environment to work in, enabling us to deliver the best care and support to residents and their loved ones.Get in touch Meet my team
