In November, Kingscourt welcomed Simon Paul to the home as their new home manager: “I am delighted to become the manager of Kingscourt and after 20 years my nursing career has come full circle and I have returned to adult social care, which is where my career in care started. My journey has taken in a number of roles, including working on Intensive Care, in theatre recovery and as a nurse specialist in intravenous access. Two years ago, I stepped out of the NHS and back into the care home environment, and have spent my time as Deputy Manager of a nearby home building experience in home management to compliment my clinical skills”
The home provides care for up to 37 older people. All visitors are welcome. If you would like to book a tour of the home or know more about nursing homes vacancies please contact the manager directly, who will be more than pleased to assist you.
