Aldringham Court Nursing Home in Aldringham, near Leiston, has announced the appointment of Tracey Cumby as its new Home Manager.
Tracey is an experienced nurse, with an advanced qualification from the English National Board of Nursing, and has worked within the NHS and the independent healthcare sectors. She has managed care homes for the past five years, a role she pursued due to her passion for providing palliative care and for caring for the elderly.
She lives in Hopton on Sea and is a busy mum of a twelve-year-old son, so spends lots of time serving as his taxi or supporting him from the side-lines of a football pitch. Her other love is her five-year-old daschund who was recently one of 500 daschunds to take part in a charity walk at Southwold.
Tracey said: “As soon as I set foot in Aldringham Court I felt at home and knew that it was somewhere I would be very happy. The welcome was warm and friendly from both the staff and the residents who have been supported in making it their home.
“It was lovely to see the individuality of each resident’s room and to feel the lively atmosphere. I would like to build on this fantastic home environment and will have an open door policy for staff and residents, as their feedback is vital in ensuring we have a happy home.”
