A NEW care home in Bromsgrove has announced the appointment of a home manager ahead of its opening early next year.

Jo Gill will lead the team at Care UK’s Chandler Court on Recreation Road, bringing with her more than 30 years experience working in a number of roles across the care sector.

She said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as the home manager at Chandler Court, and am excited to lead a skilled and passionate team when we open the doors early next year.

“I believe that in order to be a successful home manager you need to be an excellent communicator, respectful, kind, and always willing to learn.

"I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter here in Bromsgrove, delivering the highest quality of care possible.

"More than anything, I’m looking forward to putting smiles on the residents’ faces, knowing they are having a joyful time at a happy home.”

Chandler Court has also welcomed the arrival of customer relations manager, Mawson Chipchase, who has worked in the care sector for 15 years.

He said: “My previous role involved organising events and activities, and I am looking forward to continuing this with residents at Chandler Court.

"Most of all however, I am looking forward to meeting new families and residents and making them feel at home.

"I am excited to be joining a new team here in Bromsgrove and to welcoming residents through the doors in the near future.”

The new four-storey care home, which will feature 81 ensuite bedrooms, has been designed to enable its residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence.

The care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities and will include its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.
