Anu Jose

General Manager

Hi, my name is Anu, and I am the General Manager here. Welcome to our website!

I have been a registered nurse for over 10 years. Before Barchester, I have had roles in both the public and private sector, but my primary area of work interest has always been supporting people living with dementia. I have always enjoyed working in care homes and I chose this home because Barchester is a company that welcomes changes and is always working towards embracing them with great enthusiasm.
