Carmella Lewis

Deputy Manager

I have been a Registered Nurse since 2001, working in general nursing and governance.

I originally joined Barchester Healthcare as a Clinical Development Nurse (CDN), covering 11 nursing homes in the South Division.

I decided to take up the role of Deputy Manager (Clinical) at Windmill Manor because I found the home well focused in dementia care, with a well-experienced team.

I am fortunate to be part of this dedicated team, which promotes great values in dementia care.
