Highmarket House appoints new home manager

July 10th 2018


Highmarket House has welcomed a new home manager to its team.


Highmarket House has appointed Julia Joy, who will lead the team in running the purpose-built, luxury care home.

Julia started working in the care sector over 20 years ago and has previously worked for Care UK as a home manager at Priors House, in Leamington Spa.

Julia is a registered nurse, who originally trained in the army before leaving to join the NHS at Horton Hospital in Banbury, and then embarked on her career managing care homes. She is now responsible for the day-to-day running of Highmarket House, which accommodates up to 73 residents.

Priding herself on her strong work ethic, Julia has focused her approach to management on making a difference to the residents lives and working with the team to create a homely and happy place to live and work.

Commenting on her position, Julia said: “I am beyond excited to be joining the fantastic team and the wonderful residents at Highmarket House.

“I truly believe that in order to deliver the highest level of care possible, you need to be kind, supportive, conscientious, and always empathetic.

“I am delighted to be re-joining Care UK and taking the reins at Highmarket House. More than anything, I am looking forward to putting smiles on the residents’ faces, knowing they are having a wonderful time at a happy home.”



Highmarket House is a modern and welcoming home, with its own coffee shop, hair salon and cinema. Beautifully furnished lounges around the care home offers cosy spaces where residents can relax, or join in with the many activities taking place.
