Care UK has announced a new key appointment at its Hampton care home, Laurel Dene, in a move which strengthens its 95-strong home team.
Customer relations manager, Amanda Speck, joins Laurel Dene to provide the all-important link between prospective residents, their friends and families, and the care home. Amanda will also act as the lynchpin between the home and the local community, forging relationships with stakeholders including individuals, groups and agencies.
Having previously worked in the fitness industry and in various community engagement roles, Amanda brings a host of key skills and a person-centred approach to her new role.

Speaking about her new position, Amanda said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as customer relations manager at Laurel Dene and I am now making the most of the opportunity to make the home a hub for the local community.
“I strongly believe residents should be the focus of the home and at the centre of everything we do, and I will be getting to know them and their families. I am also looking forward to forging strong working relationships with the local community, with a view to putting Laurel Dene firmly on the map and allowing local people to enjoy everything the home has to offer.”
Situated on Hampton Road, Laurel Dene has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full time residential nursing and specialist dementia care.
