The trustees of Cedars Castle Hill are very pleased to be able to welcome April King as our new General Manager. She started with us on 1st July and is getting to know everyone as fast as she can.
April has been heard to say to staff there are lots of you and only one of me, so please be patient! But already she is letting us see her excellent caring qualities as well as her understanding of today’s world and communication methods. Senior staff have discovered new programs on their computers – sharing diaries is fun! – as well as time to laugh.
April is a Southampton trained nurse who has worked in many areas of nursing and health care provision. She lives locally and indeed, her son is the fourth generation of his family to attend the local primary school. In her spare time she loves to ride and walk her dogs enjoying our beautiful North Dorset countryside.
Please make time to say hello to April who will be in one or other of our homes every weekday as a norm. She looks forward to getting to know you and already will begin to know your loved one for whom we care.
The trustees are confident that this change of leadership will not change our ethos of caring appropriately for each person entrusted to us.
