Alison Peake has been appointed General Manager of specialist care village, Belong Newcastle, which is set to provide a range of dementia and nursing care services, facilities and accommodation when the village opens on Lower Street early in 2018.
Alison brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience of health and social care, both with Belong and in her previous roles as Hospital Matron and Hospital Director. She takes up leadership of Belong Newcastle from her previous role as Lead Nurse at the organisation’s Crewe care village.
Commenting on her appointment, Alison said: “I’m delighted to be taking up this post with Belong Newcastle and look forward to the months ahead as we prepare for opening and start to recruit to key positions in the village.
“This is set to be a very special village for us due to the unique opportunities that will be created by the Belong Heritage Gallery and we are really excited about its potential to engage people with dementia and new and meaningful ways.”
