The Hawthorns, the Minster Care-run residential home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, has strengthened its management team with the appointment of new Home Manager, Marie Sharp.
Marie, who has worked in the care sector for over thirty years, began her career as a trainee care assistant before working her way up to Registered Manager. She has a wealth of experience in residential, dementia and nursing care and has previously commissioned a number of extra care schemes, opening care services for young adults and adults with physical disabilities.
Marie’s qualifications include a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership in Health and Social Care and the Registered Manager’s Award. She is currently working towards a postgraduate degree in Health and Social Care Management.
During a recent inspection of The Hawthorns, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) awarded the home a ‘Good’ rating, commenting that the service was safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
Marie commented: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at The Hawthorns. My new colleagues have given me such a warm welcome and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know our residents. I look forward to working with the brilliant team here to ensure that The Hawthorns continues to champion person-centred care with a focus on ensuring residents’ independence and quality of life.”
Sheila Wood-Townend, Regional Manager at Minster Care Group, added: “Marie’s strong track record in the care sector makes her ideally placed to lead the team at The Hawthorns. I’m confident that she will go above and beyond to deliver the outstanding care that Minster Care homes are known for.”
