New Care appoints Anne Hughes at Grosvenor Manor

Fast growing care home operator, New Care, has appointed Anne Hughes, from Chester, as registered manager at its popular Grosvenor Manor Care Centre on Hatchmere Drive just outside the city centre.

In her new role, Anne takes responsibility for the state-of-the-art 81-bed care facility, its residents and 100-strong employee team. She will work consistently to ensure the home provides the very best quality of care and that every resident receives person-centred individual care in a safe and dignified manner.

She is also tasked with ensuring the home complies with Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulations and will oversee ongoing training and development to ensure the team at Grosvenor Manor meets New Care’s exacting standards and the needs of the wonderful community of residents who call the care centre their home.

Well qualified for her new role, Anne was previously home manager at a smaller care home in the North West. She is also a registered nurse with many years’ experience, qualifying as an enrolled nurse in Scotland before completing her conversion course to registered nurse in Chester in 1992.

She was initially attracted to Grosvenor Manor due to New Care’s enviable industry reputation for quality care and was beyond impressed with the atmosphere and surroundings of the luxury care centre when she stepped into the foyer for the first time. She is delighted to now officially be part of the warm, friendly and dedicated team at the thriving and well established home.

Anne commented: “I am so pleased to be appointed home manager at Grosvenor Manor and look forward to working with a great team of people who love what they do which is delivering exceptional care and an outstanding quality of daily life for our residents. Grosvenor Manor is very firmly established as one of the best homes in Chester and we will build on this further to ensure a safe and happy environment for residents and peace of mind for families and loved ones during these difficult times.”

Commissioning director at New Care, Dawn Collett, added: “Anne was the obvious choice for this role; she has all the right qualities to lead our team and deliver the warm and personal care for which we are renowned. I am delighted to welcome her to the team.”

Age 59, Anne is married with four grown up children and four grandchildren. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and going abroad with some good books to chill out.
