New appointment strengthens team at Essex care home

Home news

Silversprings care home has welcomed a new member of the team, David Martins, as he takes on the role of customer relations manager.

David, from Colchester, joins Care UK's Silversprings to provide the all-important link between prospective residents, their friends and families, and the care home.  David will also act as the lynchpin between the home and the local community, forging relationships with key individuals, groups and agencies.

Having worked in the banking industry throughout his career, including ten years as a bank manager, David brings a host of key skills and a person-centred approach to his new role.

David said: “I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to take on such an exciting role at Silversprings.  My family all work in care and I believed I could also offer something special – that I could make a difference to people’s lives.  Silversprings is a beautiful home and the minute I walked through the door I fell in love with it.  I am proud to show people around and I am now looking forward to welcoming residents to their new home.”

Regina Mparutsa, home manager at Silversprings, said: “David’s appointment strengthens the 80-strong team here at Silversprings, and we are all very pleased to have him on board.  This is one of Care UK’s most popular homes and, while every detail has been considered to provide the highest standards of care, having the right people working in the home is key to the overall experience of residents.

“David is a highly experienced, skilled individual and he has had a successful track record in his career to-date.  The role of customer relations manager is key to the smooth running of the care home, and I am sure David will play an important part in driving standards at Silversprings while also building on its reputation in the local community.”
