A CARE home in Portsmouth has appointed a new general manager.
Michelle Presdee has taken the reins at 60-bed Hartford Court, which is in Guardians Gate, a development near St Mary’s Hospital in Milton.
During her adult social care career Michelle started as a ‘tea girl’ and then moved on to be an auxiliary nurse in a nursing home. Following her professional qualifications, she worked for many years as a social worker, specialising in working with older people and moving in to Care Homes.
Michelle has also worked for the Care Quality Commission as an inspector for 20 years and now she will lead a team of 58 staff.
She said: ‘My time at the CQC gave me the skills and experience to know Hartford Court is a home which ensures residents are central and will be at the heart of all decisions made.’
