A Whitchurch care home has come under new management after the retirement of the previous manager.

Wendy Lellek replaces the outgoing Elizabeth Jones at Greenfields Care Home, run by Coverage Care.

Greenfields, which has a Care Quality Commission rating of 'good', specialises in caring for those with dementia, general nursing and residential care.

Coverage Care, which provides residential and nursing care for mainly older people in 14 homes across the county, said Wendy - one of five new home managers across the county - would underpin the not-for-profit company’s long-term strategy for a successful and sustainable future.

Chief executive of Coverage Care, David Coull, said: "I am delighted to welcome our new managers to their roles. They will play a pivotal role in the leadership and delivery of care in our homes and in supporting our on-going aims to continually strive for improvement across our services.

"Great leaders deliver great services and we look forward to supporting them to achieve this as they bed into their new roles."
