Ramona Gherendi

General Manager

Hello - my name is Ramona Gherendi. I am the General Manager here at White Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I began my nursing career in 2004 in Romania as a cardiac nurse and moved to the UK with my family in 2011. I have worked in adult general nursing in the UK since then. I joined Barchester Healthcare in 2018 as a Clinical Lead and was promoted to Peripatetic Deputy Manager in 2020. I am proud to have now been appointed General Manager of this lovely, rural home, White Lodge.

I love working in nursing and care and am committed to delivering person-centred support for residents at White Lodge. Over the years I have worked in various care environments where I developed a particular passion for palliative care.

My focus at White Lodge is to ensure residents have the best possible life and experiences every single day, supported by the skilled and caring team here. I get to know every resident personally and my door is always open to them and their families.
