New managers take to the helm of Silversprings

July 10th 2017

Silversprings has welcomed two new members of the team with the appointment of a home manager and deputy manager.

Donna Cousins will lead the team at Silversprings, having worked at a number of homes within Care UK since 1991.

Over the last 26 years, Donna has taken on a variety of roles, including director of quality and governance, and home manager at Elizabeth Lodge in Enfield. Donna’s new positon will see her take responsibility for the day-to-day running of Silversprings, which accommodates up to 64 residents.

Commenting on her new position, Donna said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as home manager at Silversprings, and I look forward to working alongside the skilled and passionate team.”

“I believe that to be a successful home manager you need to be a good listener and a supportive team leader. Making sure we have a good quality service to ensure residents feel safe, secure, and looked after is key – and I look forward to leading the team at Silversprings.”

The care home has also recently appointed Mandy Demba as deputy home manager. Mandy holds a number of leadership qualifications and has spent much of her career working at various levels within the health and social care sector.

Mandy said: “I am thrilled to be taking on this new role here in Thorrington, and am looking forward to getting to know the residents and families at the home. I pride myself on my honesty, organisation and friendly demeanour, which I hope will serve me well as I start my new journey at Silversprings.” 

Silversprings is set in stunning countryside near Colchester and has lots to offer residents of all interests and abilities. In the grounds you can discover sensory gardens and nature walks, as well as doves, ducks and chickens, who are always happy to be fed.
