Fornham House residential care home in Fornham St Martin, Bury St Edmunds, is delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Coleman as its new Home Manager.
Stuart began his career in the care industry with Scope in 2000, where he supported people living with learning disabilities. He progressed through the ranks, becoming a senior carer and a team leader, before moving into managerial positions.
Prior to Fornham House, Stuart managed a specialist home in Feering, Essex, which included a transition to a new provider following the home’s acquisition.
Speaking of his appointment, Stuart said: “Fornham House is in an amazing setting and really is a lovely home; a real Downton Abbey of Bury St Edmunds! I am enjoying meeting all the residents and their relatives and am keen to receive continuous feedback by maintaining an open-door approach. This of course extends to staff, who are really happy to share their ideas to continually refine the service we are providing.
Concludes Stuart: “There are a number of initiatives that I’m in the process of implementing, including a new community-focused programme to forge stronger ties with our neighbours and local organisations. We are also focusing on recruitment to bring more carers into our home, which has also started well as we begin the New Year.”
Previously based in Colchester, Stuart has now relocated to Bury St Edmunds to be nearer the home.
