A NEW manager with a strong track record in the care industry has been appointed at a Rotherham care home.
Luke Owens has taken the top job at Broadacres Care Home, in Parkgate, and has already issued an open invitation to those looking for support for their loved ones.
“I want the community to see firsthand the passion and commitment we have at Broadacres,” Luke said.
“Anyone interested in learning more about the home and the support we provide to those requiring care is welcome to pop in when they’re in the area.
“If they’re unable to visit us, I am more than happy to arrange to see them at a convenient time, so I can answer any of their questions.”
Luke is a career carer, having studied nursing at university, while registering and training for bank work as a carer.
After leaving university, he progressed in adult social care, working his way up to management, and has assisted commissioning services for care for over 18s in Bassettlaw, Nottinghamshire.
Prior to joining the Hill Care Group, which operates Broadacres Care Home, he managed and took his previous home from “Requires Improvement” to “Good” under CQC standards.
He said: “I truly believe the key to caring for elderly people is making sure they receive personalised support from a team of highly trained and dedicated staff that cares for them on a round-the-clock basis.
“At Broadacres Care Home, we are committed to treating each of our residents as individuals, taking the time to get to know them and developing a personal care plan, so we can cater for their individual needs.
“We provide long term, short-stay and respite care to people with residential or residential dementia needs. We also provide rehabilitation, palliative and end of life care.”
