Residents will be at the heart of everything we do, says the new manager at Stansted’s £6million care home, Allison Squires.

Ms Squires has been appointed by Care UK to ensure the smooth-running of the purpose-built home in Stansted Mountfitchet, which opens its doors to residents in October.

Mountfichet House, which should create up to 100 jobs, offers a range of care for older people including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, short term respite and palliative care.

An on-site chef, as well as vintage-themed cinema, hairdressing salon and coffee shop are also part of the complex.

“I am taking great pleasure in playing a part in commissioning the new home and getting it up and running as we head towards our opening,” said Ms Squires, whose career in the health and care industries spans 30 years.
