A FORMER Royal Air Force logistics controller has taken over management of a Barnsley care home.
Julia Chambers is the new home manager at Deangate Care Home, on Towngate, Mapplewell.
Following a ten-year career in the RAF, Julia switched to social care, joining a Rotherham care home as a care assistant.
Julia has risen from care assistant to Registered General Nurse (RGN) and then into management as a deputy manager and finally home manager at Deangate.
She said: “Upon leaving school, I worked for the RAF as a logistics controller. After having my son, I moved to Barnsley, where I applied to do my nurse training and began working with the elderly.
“I truly believe the key to caring for elderly people is making sure they receive personalised support from a team of highly trained and dedicated staff that cares for them on a day-to-day basis.
“Everyone at Deangate Care Home is committed to treating each of our residents as individuals, taking the time to get to know them and developing a personalised plan, catered to their specific needs.”
