ARMSCARE Staff Christmas Party

Terrington Lodge Manager – Trina

Welcome Back…

We will very shortly be welcoming Terenia Skevington (Trina) to the ARMSCARE Managment team. After almost a year of Clare managing the Terrington Lodge, Trina will take over as Manager. This new posting will not only strengthen the ARMSCARE Management team but will allow each Manager to focus solely on their Homes.

I am sure you will all join me in welcoming Trina to our team.IMG_8057

This is to confirm that Bibin Baby Pathuppilly, will over the next few months be training to become Nigel Playford’s right hand man. 

Bibin joined us after his Master’s degree and was engaged in assisting Nigel in HR, training and staff development matters. He will now be expanding this role  and be training to encorporate other management responsibilities whist acting as Nigel’s Assistant Manager.

I am sure that you will all join me in congratulating Bibin and give him your fullest support whilst he is training.


Henry Bellingham MP visits Summerville..

Today Mr Henry Bellingham, MP for North West Norfolk took the time and trouble to have afternoon tea with the residents, relatives  and  staff of ARMSCARE at Summerville House.

Apart from getting to know some of the residents and staff, we briefly discussed our plans for the new 35 bed room wing, our recent pledge to join the campaign.

It was a pleasant afternoon and a rare treat for the residents to meet their local MP.

Katie Vanputten is Appointed Manager of Laburnum…

In our effort to develop and promote staff from within the organisation I am pleased to announce the appointment of Katie Vanputten as Manager of Laburnum Lodge.

Katie has been at Laburnum Lodge for the past 2 years, initially as a Senior Carer and over the past year has been the Assistant Manager. Throughout her time, Katie has worked hard to maintain the ARMSCARE ethos, in terms of our staff, our systems and the way we work, which has helped her to help maintain high care standards amongst the staff.

In recognition of her determination, drive and passion, Katie has now been appointed Manager of Laburnum to help maintain the home’s standards. I am sure she will provide all the staff the support they need to drive the home forward.

I am sure that you will all join me in wishing her well in her new role and will give her the support and encouragement she so deserves.

Thank You.
