Jan Wilkins, General Manager of Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, has been promoted to a strategic role which will see her lead the service’s growth in the region.
Jan, who has been with the home for more than six years, steps up to become Director of Operations for the Crews Hole Road home.
Since she joined the home, she has steered Riversway to success, winning awards and undergoing expansion of services to meet modern care needs.
In her new role, Jan will continue to lead Riversway, overseeing a strong management team responsible for the home’s day-to-day running, and developing and delivering a complex care offering to match changing requirements of residents.
She said: “Since I joined Riversway I have been able to work with the team here to achieve many of our aims – the services we offer have been developed and the home itself has undergone improvements and refurbishments, which are ongoing now.
“We have developed a great reputation in Bristol, and the work of the home and its staff has been honoured with a number of awards including most recently one of our nurses being named the region’s dementia carer of the year.
“Springhill Care Group and its management have given me fantastic support to develop Riversway and I’m looking forward to continuing the great progress we’ve made.”
