A new care home that is preparing to welcome its first residents has appointed a new manager to head up the multi-million pound facility.
Alcyone Healthcare will see Joanne Othen take up the role at Baedling Manor on Bedlington Front Street, overseeing 50 staff.
Bringing with her over 20 years’ experience in the care industry and over 15 years held at management level, Joanne has a wealth of experience working with people living with dementia, in addition to residential and domiciliary home care.
She said: “It is a hugely exciting time to be able to join the company at this key stage of the home’s development and to be given the opportunity to hand-pick the right team of staff to care for our future residents. I am making the most of this opportunity to play a part in commissioning the home and getting it fully operational.”
