Sussex Healthcare has announced that Amanda Morgan-Taylor will be their new chief executive officer. She officially begins working for this business in February 2018 but she started in an informal role a month before that so she could become fully acquainted with her new team and the homes that Sussex Healthcare operates. Even before she officially took over she had worked with senior managers at this healthcare company in order to put in place a new executive position called the Director of Quality, Compliance, and Service Improvement.
Amanda Morgan-Taylor has thirty years of experience in healthcare in both the public and private sectors. She started her professional career in 1984 when she was a mental health nurse. Other positions she has since held are service manager, development director, and managing director. She has extensive experience working with councils and other local authorities.
As part of acquainting herself with how Sussex Healthcare helps the people in its homes, Amanda will be personally visiting all 20 homes they operate in the first few months of being CEO. She plans on meeting these home’s residents as well as their families, plus the team of management and employees at each location. By working with the management and staff of this company she will see to it that it is dedicated to delivering the highest quality of care in the industry.
Sussex Healthcare provides a home to those who are not able to take care of themselves. This includes elderly people with age-related issues such as dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. They also care for people who have physical and/or mental disabilities of any age. Another service they provide is audiology; they have teamed up with the National Institute of Health to provide hearing aids to those who are hard of hearing.
In order to meet the well-being needs of its patients, Sussex Healthcare offers many different types of activities to help people with their physical and mental needs. This can include games, movies, and other ways to be socially active. The residents also have opportunities to take classes in order to learn new things such as painting and other pursuits.
