Michelle Di Bella
Hi, my name is Michelle and I am the general manager here at Westgate House. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website!
I worked as a home manager for 4 years in various settings within the same company, ensuring that the homes attained compliance and they had a welcoming and homely environment that people would wish to live in. Before this, I was a deputy home manager in a role ensuring that all clinical aspects of the home were met, so that people were safe and well-cared for. I am a qualified nurse and have previously had experience caring for people with terminal illnesses. I have further qualifications in dementia care from Bradford University.
It is a wonderful feeling able to leave at the end of the day knowing that I have been able to make a change to the people’s lives within the home in which I work, and that people remain safe and happy in this environment.Get in touch Meet my team
