With build well underway and the official opening of the care home scheduled for this summer, New Care has appointed Lorraine Disley as registered manager at The Hamptons Care Centre on Main Drive in Lytham St Anne’s.
In her new role, Lorraine will take responsibility for the soon-to-open, state-of-the-art 76-bed care facility, including all residents and staff.
She will work hard to ensure each resident receives professional, person-centred care from her team, enhancing their lives by encouraging them to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible, and that each day is filled with love and laughter.
Lorraine has also been tasked with ensuring the home complies with Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulations and will oversee ongoing training and development of the team, making sure they meet New Care’s exacting standards.
With just a couple of months until the care home opens, Lorraine is already very busy. For the first time in her career she is working closely with the senior management team on the build of the care home, providing her expert opinion and wealth of knowledge.
Lorraine joins New Care from Four Seasons Health Care where she was a Regional Manager responsible for 17 care homes across the North West. With a career in care management spanning over 25 years, she is the right lady for this role.
CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, says: “Lorraine is without doubt the perfect person to manage The Hamptons. She has an incredible career history in care and fully supports our aim, which is to significantly raise the standards of care across the UK.
“The Hamptons Care Centre is coming on very nicely and Lorraine’s input has been invaluable. I’d like to welcome her to the New Care team and wish her well in her new role.”
Lorraine adds: “I am thrilled to have joined New Care; it is a superb company with an incredible vision to deliver only the highest standards of care, which is something I am very passionate about too. New Care’s approach to care is fresh and progressive within the industry so it is great to be part of that.
“Being involved in the build process of The Hamptons has been a new, but fantastic experience from me and I am proud I have been able to offer my advice in the development stage. I am very much looking forward to the next couple of months, watching the care home take shape and hand-picking my team. Once open, I want to create an individual, inviting and comfortable care facility in Lytham St Anne’s, one that is an integral part of the local community.”
Aged 47, Lorraine lives in Liverpool and when now working, enjoys spending time with her family and walking her basset hound on Crosby beach.
