Care home provider appoints Admiral Nurse

  • Comment

An independent care home provider has appointed an Admiral Nurse to help support its dementia patients.

The Orders of St John Care Trust has become the UK’s second independent care provider to appoint an Admiral Nurse.

Angie Williams, a specialist mental health nurse specialising in dementia care, has joined OSJCT to provide support to relatives, staff and carers of people with dementia across the trust’s 73 homes.

Her role will include the training of staff, introducing dementia care mapping and implementing a framework to help evaluate and further improve resident’s quality of life under the My Home Life initiative.

OSJCT care and nursing director Victoria Elliot said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Angie Williams who will work as part of our dedicated team to deliver person-centred care to our residents with dementia.”

The first independent provider to appoint an Admiral Nurse, Cheryl Rothschild, was Friends of the Elderly in October 2008.
