A new care home has named the latest members of its team as it prepares to open later this year.

Care UK’s Buchanan Court, based in Sudbury Hill, will be led by Angela Kamara, who has more than 25 years’ experience in the industry.

She expressed her enthusiasm at being appointed as the new home manager at the 80-bedroom facility and said she was looking forward to a positive future there.

“I am more than delighted to have been appointed as the first home manager at Buchanan Court, and I am excited to lead a skilled and passionate team when we open the doors later this year,” she said.

“I believe that in order to be a successful home manager you need to be an excellent communicator, respectful, kind, and always willing to learn.

“I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter here in Harrow delivering the highest quality of care possible and more than anything I am looking forward to putting smiles on the residents’ faces knowing that they are having a joyful time at a happy home.”

The home has also welcomed Samantha Neal as customer relations manager. She previously held the same role at Care UK’s Elizabeth Lodge in Enfield.

She said she was looking forward to welcoming new residents to the facility and would ensure that they were made to feel at home there.
