New Care has appointed Sarah Lydon, from the Peak District, as registered manager at its latest care facility, Bramhall Manor on Hardy Drive in Bramhall.
In her new role, Sarah is responsible for the provision of a well-led, responsive and supportive environment for all residents, relatives and staff. With the care facility fully commissioned by the Council and NHS in Stockport, Sarah is committed to helping Stepping Hill Hospital, assisting with the fast and effective discharge of patients to free up vital hospital beds, and ensuring a safe transfer to Bramhall Manor for further assessment before returning home.
In time, the care facility will provide a home-from-home environment for residents, allowing them to enjoy a quality life surrounded by loved ones, with a highly skilled team providing exceptional person-centred care.
Sarah previously worked for Barchester for 12 years in a range of positions, most recently as Quality Improvement Specialist. She completed quality improvement reviews of the North portfolio, providing action plans and support to maintain good compliance with local CCG and CQC.
Commenting on her appointment, Sarah says: “I have followed New Care from afar for many years, watching the company grow and expand. The company has enjoyed an exciting journey and as I had previously worked with New Care’s Chief Operating Officer, I always believed that if I was to join a different company, it would be one with like-minded people that value residents, putting them at the heart of everything they do. New Care fitted perfectly.
“Bramhall Manor is a stunning care facility and we have started to recruit a talented team too. The coming months will be busy, working with Stepping Hill Hospital as they free up beds and move medically discharged patients to Bramhall Manor for rehabilitation, and I am looking forward to the challenge, ensuring this service is a huge success.”
Chris McGoff, CEO at New Care, adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Sarah to New Care. She has enjoyed a successful career in the care industry and brings with her valuable experience and knowledge. We wish her well and are confident she will exceed in her role at Bramhall Manor.”
Sarah is a registered general nurse and in recent years has undertaken extra education in Tissue Viability and Palliative Care. She also completed a degree in ‘Care of the Older Person’ at Wolverhampton University.
Away from work, Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband and three beautiful daughters. With any rare free time she has, Sarah heads to the countryside with her motorbike to blow the cobwebs away.
Bramhall Manor is an expertly designed, state-of-art 71-bed care facility. The care home features elegant private bedrooms with en suite wet rooms, stylish communal lounges and dining rooms, plus secure beautifully landscaped gardens.
