As Registered Manager of an MBi Social Care facility, Jane facilitates the complete care service delivery through her management and leadership and ensures our 'Triangle of Convergence' philosophy influences all interactions with residents, their families and friends, the home team and out into the wider community; she further ensures that the quality of the care provision meets the five key lines of enquiry and exceeds fundamental standards.
With a primary focus on delivering family and community inclusive approaches, Jane encourages every team member to assume ownership of their involvement and care is designed with safety, inclusion and choice in mind. At every stage, Jane applies a triangle of convergence approach that advances the quality of life for residents, family and staff alike.
Qualifying as a general nurse in 1984, Jane began her career in Portsmouth specialising in rheumatology in a research based ward and later diabetes. Jane returned to the northwest and continued to develop her skill by under taking Diploma in the Independent sector.
Jane undertook her palliative care ENB at Preston and Blackburn where since this time Palliative care remains her passion. This is reflected in the development of Sandycroft into a well-known and highly respected home. Jane believes that training under pins the high quality care at the home and implemented quality of care monitoring by the awarding and retention of the highly regarded Gold Standard Framework.
“This framework encourages all staff to plan care from the day of admission when we form a bond to enable informed and chosen care. The person chooses their care and where and how the care is to be delivered. We explore the person’s final wishes and if possible try to fulfil their wishes and dreams”
Both Jane and her deputy maintain their mentor training and the home is affiliated to the University of Cumbria and helps in the training of student nurses. “The home is small in size and the staff and residents bond together as one family”
