Diss Care home appoints its youngest manager
Diss’ largest care home has appointed a new manager.
Lauren Tubby took up the position at De Lucy House on Victoria Road last month.
At just 30, she is the youngest care home manager to be appointed by the Greensleeves Care group, which runs 24 care homes across England.
De Lucy was recently award a ‘good’ rating by the CQC and graded as ‘outstanding’ in the area of responsiveness.
“I have always been inspired by, and passionate about care work and it’s great to be working with the team of 113 staff at De Lucy,” said Lauren.
“I have lived in Diss all of my life and worked at the home since it opened in September 2015, so I really feel part of the community and proud of it.
Lauren is now working on a number of new projects. De Lucy has 60 beds, split between residents and those living with dementia. It recently won five of 11 awards in Greensleeve’s award scheme.
“We are working on a new sensory room and a bar, which was requested by the residents,” said Lauren.
“We are also looking to build on our summer fetes and fundraising activities as Greensleeves is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation.
“People are at the heart of everything we do.”
Lauren is also exploring the need for a day care service and would like to hear from people who would find it of benefit.
“Day care can provide vital social interaction for people as well as services such as chiropody and hairdressing, for instance,” said Lauren.
