Elena Sandu

General Manager

Hi, my name is Elena and I am the General Manager here at Woodside. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.

I have over 19 years of experience in the nursing sector and am very passionate about my work. I always ensure that residents receive the best care and are treated with respect and dignity.

Part of my vision is to create a 'home from home' environment, where residents are actively involved in organising events. Our door is always open to visitors who want to experience our family-friendly atmosphere.
