New Care: Sharon Burton
New Care has appointed Sharon Burton as registered home manager of Adel Manor Care Centre in Leeds.
The £15 million 74-bed care facility will open in April, offering residential, nursing and dementia care services and employing more than 80 staff.
Burton is a qualified nurse with an advanced nurse practitioner degree, diploma in management studies and an MBA, who has worked in the NHS as well as private hospitals, hospices and social care. For 20 years she has held director positions in nursing, governance, business development and home commissioning, while more recently, she managed two complex care nursing homes in West Yorkshire.
Chris McGoff, chief executive at New Care, said: “Sharon’s experience and knowledge is exceptional and I am fully confident that she, together with the team, will enrich the lives of all residents at Adel Manor.”
Burton said: “I was attracted to New Care and its fantastic care facilities, in particular the care delivery and environment. There was an instant family feeling and a real focus on the wellbeing of people, which is incredibly refreshing to see as this is often lost within many organisations. I am fiercely passionate about the highest standards of care for those lives we are fortunate enough to be part of and believe New Care shares that very same vision.
“I have watched Adel Manor progress from a building site to a stunning care home. Relationships have been formed and to know Adel Manor will, when open, become a home full of care and laughter is a privilege. It’s an extremely rewarding role to open a home from the start and see it grow; it gives a huge sense of achievement, and I am looking forward to opening the doors of Adel Manor and welcoming our first residents next month.”
New Care is part of the McGoff Group.
