New Care has appointed Paula Clark as registered manager of Wilmslow Manor Care Centre, the company’s latest care facility on in Wilmslow in Cheshire.

Sophie Kay has been appointed as deputy manager, leading on the clinical care and management of the nurses and care staff.

Clark has worked in older people care settings for more than 38 years providing domiciliary, residential, nursing and dementia care, and has been a registered manager of care homes across the Northwest, and more recently in the Isle of Man, since 2009.

Kay has a diverse background in nursing across all sectors, including A&E, primary care, plastic and cosmetic surgery, as well as private general medicine. She has experience of quality assurance, patient experience and safeguarding, and her last role was practice nurse lead for Cheshire.

Clark said: “I was attracted to New Care due to its incredible reputation, both towards the outstanding care the residents receive and unrivalled support of staff, which after the pandemic was very important to me.  I also know several members of the New Care team, who I have worked with in the past, and their glowing reports and positive recommendations really appealed.

“The care facilities themselves are beautiful inside and out. The attention to detail of the design combined with the installation of modern technology and equipment is amazing; they are truly superb care homes.”

Kay added: “New Care is unique in that the company builds care facilities that are beautiful settings, both externally and internally, creating stunning care homes that residents want to live in.  I love the fact that New Care has not used agency staff for over two years, which reflects on the quality of care provided and exceptional staff retention within the company.

“Working alongside Paula, I want Wilmslow Manor to forge an excellent reputation throughout Wilmslow and the surrounding villages, making it ‘the’ place to be for the elderly for residential, nursing or dementia care.”

Chris McGoff, chief executive at New Care, commented: “I am delighted to welcome both Paula and Sophie to the New Care team.  I am confident they will utilise their extensive knowledge and expertise to establish Wilmslow Manor as the care home of choice in Wilmslow and the surrounding areas.”

Opening later this month, Wilmslow Manor is a new purpose-built 63-bedroom care home, featuring fully furnished bedrooms, each with a private en suite wet room, plus communal lounges and dining rooms. It also has a nail bar, hairdresser, landscaped gardens and outdoor terraces to the first floor.
