A Northamptonshire care home that provides nursing, residential and respite care has appointed a new manager to help focus on dementia training and investment into the care team.
Meadow View, a branch of Wellbeing Care that prides itself on providing the highest standard of person-centred care for up to 53 people in Wellingborough, has welcomed Kathy Murphy as its new manager.
Kathy joins the High Street care home with 42 years of experience in the industry. She has a wealth of knowledge working across many different areas of care including learning difficulties, post operative, mental health, old age, dementia and cancer.
Starting as a nurse’s aid, Kathy spent 19 years working at a mental health hospital in Ireland, before moving to the UK where she transitioned into management roles, and most recently landing herself a position at the Irchester home.
Talking of her recent appointment at Meadow View, Kathy said: “I started working in the care industry when I was 15 and I can’t imagine being in any other line of work. Nothing else is for me apart from care.
“After a year off, I couldn’t think of a better project to come back to work on. My overarching goal is to gain an ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating here, and from what I’ve seen already we certainly have the staff and resources to make that happen.”
Originally a private Victorian house, Meadow View has seen numerous refurbishments since being repurposed as a nursing home in 1986. It has been heavily extended in three areas making it the largest of the three residencies of Wellbeing Care.
Wellbeing Care is a family-run group of care services that focuses on providing first-rate, person-centred care to older people living in Northamptonshire and Suffolk. The group provides residential care, nursing care, dementia care, respite care, day care and supported living services.
