The Home Director - Louise Hedley
What do I do?
As the home director it is my responsibility to ensure Pine Martin Grange is safe, enjoyable and maintained to the highest level within the care home industry but also to provide an outstanding service, for our residents whatever this may be to each individual, their families and visitors alike.
I am so very proud of the Pine Martin Grange team and not only does every single member have genuine care and regard for our residents but for each other as well making it a incredible team to manage and environment to work.
I trained as a Adult Registered Nurse in 2004 at our local Bournemouth University. I spent time working in the NHS at Poole General Hospital before moving to social care. Over the last 13 years I have worked in a variety of settings including Mental Health, Critical Care, Acute Medicine, Older People and Older People with Dementia, Specialist Neuro Rehab, Community Care and Children with Complex Needs. In most recent years I have been Deputising and Managing Nursing and Residential Care Homes. I started out at Pine Martin Grange as Deputy Home Director and feel extremely privileged to have been able to progress within Mayflower Care Communities with a promotion to Home Director.
Outside of my working time I lead an incredibly busy life with my husband and 2 children who are 4 and 3 years old. We have a beautiful Chocolate Labrador and British Shorthair Cat as part of our family home in Bournemouth. We spend a lot of time visiting local attractions and family time at the beach with our Lab. We also love food so can also be found trying out new restaurants around the local area. I am a very caring person and have always put the needs of others before myself, including my mother who I nursed myself at home until she passed in 2014.
