Borough Care has appointed Chrisi Williams and Geraldine Blow as new Area Managers. Borough Care is the largest not-for-profit provider of care for older people in Stockport and has eleven homes across the borough.
As Area Managers, Chrisi and Geraldine will support the Managers at each of Borough Care’s homes, to develop a culture of continuous improvement. Making sure Borough Care’s homes continue to provide a safe, harmonious environment for residents, and support their physical and emotional wellbeing, will be a critical part of the job. Chrisi and Geraldine will also ensure Borough Care’s homes meet regulatory and contractual compliance requirements.
Commenting on what attracted her to Borough Care, Chrisi Williams says: “Having previously inspected some of Borough Care’s homes, I knew the company’s ethos and values of compassion, aspiration and respect matched my own. Borough Care is committed to providing the highest quality of care to its residents. As a not-for-profit organisation, Borough Care reinvests any surplus money into the services it offers; serving the best interests of residents and their families, which is something I support.”
Geraldine Blow has first-hand experience of Borough Care’s service, as her mother has been a resident in a Borough Care home for the past five years. Geraldine says: “As a Care Quality Commission Inspector, I inspected some of Borough Care’s homes and was so impressed with the standard of individualised care given to people that when my mother needed care we, as a family, chose for her to live in one of the homes.” Like Chrisi, Geraldine believes Borough Care’s values are in line with her own. Geraldine says: “I, like Borough Care, believe everyone should be encouraged and supported to live their best possible life, whatever their age, health or capabilities. People should receive the highest standard of care, provided by kind, compassionate and well trained staff, and I am looking forward to playing my part in delivering this at Borough Care.”
Chrisi and Geraldine both previously worked as Inspectors for the Care Quality Commission and both live in Stockport.
