Balhousie Brookfield has appointed a new manager in Sarah-Jane Bell. Having worked within the home for some time in a previous role, Sarah-Jane has been impressed with the close relationships forged between staff and Brookfield’s residents and feels this type of person-centered care, where residents are treated as individuals and not numbers, makes all the difference between a good and a bad care home.

Community is also important to Sarah-Jane, noting that during her time as manager, she hopes to maintain and strengthen the homes already enduring relationship with the local community.  

Consistency in Care

Taking over from Terry Banks, who achieved high standards and consistent ‘Care Inspectorate Report’ gradings across the board during her time as manager, Sarah-Jane hopes to continue to build the home from strength-to-strength and maintain the already high standards of care present within Brookfield.

Resident care, along with their happiness, which Sarah-Jane believes go hand-in-hand, is of upmost importance when undertaking her duties as new manager. Staff support and development is also important to her, to not only ensure professional satisfaction and learning amongst her team but also to ensure staff are able to deliver the highest standards of individual, personalised care to all residents at all times.

Brookfield offers a full and varied schedule of resident activities, something that Sarah-Jane plans to progress going forward.

Developing Activities and Lifestyle

“I have introduced a number of new activities to our residents. We have a group of residents who attend the local allotments regularly and I would like to introduce swimming sessions on a monthly basis, enabling those who attend to remain active whilst having fun.”

Sarah-Jane shares Balhousie Care Group’s belief that remaining both physically and mentally active, where possible, aides a happier and more fulfilling life, one that we wish for all of our residents while they are in our care.

Balhousie Care Group is thrilled to welcome Sarah-Jane to its home managerial team and we have every faith that she will continue to manage Brookfield to a high standard, ensuring the best possible care for residents at every level.
