Hadrian Healthcare Group has appointed Lucy Gradwell as manager for The Manor House care home in Knaresborough.
Lucy, from Harrogate, began her career as a care assistant. She has worked her way up through various care roles to manager gaining experience in nursing, residential and dementia care settings and taking every opportunity for training along the way.
Lucy said: “I am passionate about personalised care and support for residents, their families and our staff. I strongly believe the best elderly care takes place when people feel comfortable and at home. At The Manor House we have beautiful surroundings in which to provide the best possible residential, dementia and respite care for every client.”
The Manor House at Hambleton Grove opened in November.
