News & Activities November 2022

Welcome

We welcome Nicola Neeson to the team. Nicola is Nettlestead’s new Head of Home Manager and we’re excited to welcome the knowledge and experience you will bring to the team. Please don’t hesitate to say a big Hello.

 

Changes

Congratulations to Holly Englefield on her recent promotion to Operations Manager. Holly has developed her skills and knowledge to support Nightingales in multiple areas including HomeCare and Homes. Holly will still be actively present within Nettlestead on a weekly basis so please feel free to keep in contact if you have any questions.

Farewell to Katherine Flitter on her recent news of leaving Nettlestead and her position of Senior Assistant Manager. Katherine has served Nightingales for the past 6 years and will be sadly missed within the Nightingales Team. We congratulate Katherine on her next challenge and chapter within her life. Nightingales fully supports Katherines pathway and would like to thank her for her dedication and support she’s provided.

We appreciate this is a lot of news to share with loved ones and understand this may leave some questions. Please do not hesitate to reach out to either Holly or Katherine, as always we will always be transparent with our clients and loved ones in providing any reassurance needed.
