An experienced care professional is the new Registered Manager at the Lansdowne Hill Care Home in Wroughton.

The home, rated 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission, is run by independent care provider Agincare.

The firm said it was delighted to announce that Gemma Brown had become Registered Manager.

Having moved to Wiltshire to join the Agincare team, Gemma has worked in the care sector for over a decade, most recently as Registered Manager of a care home in Berkshire which specialised in dementia care.

Agincare says the long-held good reputation of Lansdowne Hill Care Home in the community and its ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating - the highest possible rating from the independent health and social care regulator - attracted her to the job.

Gemma said: “I feel very privileged to be the Registered Manager of Lansdowne Hill Care Home and to be joining the Agincare team.

“I am passionate about upholding the high standards of care and ensuring the dignity, privacy and freedom of choice of our residents.

“I am keen to continue the excellent reputation that the Lansdowne Hill Care Home has built for itself.”

An Agincare spokesperson said: "Lansdowne Hill Care Home provides affordable residential, respite and convalescence care. The care team themselves have a wealth of experience caring for older people with physical and mental health needs, including Parkinson’s disease and differing types of dementia.

"Accommodating 46 single-bedrooms, residents can enjoy comfortable, spacious lounges that overlook the beautiful gardens, where pride of place is the traditional dovecote – home to a family of much-loved doves.

"Lansdowne Hill prides itself for its active role in the local community - hosting regular events such as Macmillan Coffee Mornings, tea parties and barbecues in the gardens. 

"Lansdowne Hill is also a keen participant of the annual nationwide Care Home Open Week scheme - opening its doors to build wider relationships with the public.
