Bedford Care Home Celebrates Joanne Fishwick’s 19-Year Journey to Home Manager

29 February 2024

In a heartwarming celebration of dedication and commitment, Bedford Care Home is proudly honoring Joanne Fishwick, who has been an integral part of the facility for an impressive 19 years, as she takes on the role of Home Manager.

Joanne’s journey with Bedford Care Home began in 2005 when she joined as a Care Assistant. Despite initially aiming to pursue a career in nursing, Joanne found her true calling in caregiving and decided to dedicate herself to the wellbeing of the residents at Bedford.

Over the years, Joanne’s passion and dedication led her through various roles within the home, including Nursing Assistant, Unit Manager, Head of Care, and Deputy Manager. Through each role, Joanne demonstrated exemplary leadership, compassion, and a deep understanding of the needs of both residents and staff.

Now, as she steps into the position of Home Manager, Joanne brings with her a wealth of experience and a profound commitment to creating a warm and welcoming environment for all. Her vision for Bedford Care Home is clear: to ensure that residents, families, staff, and visitors alike feel like they are part of one big family.

Reflecting on her journey, Joanne shares, “I have always had a passion for caring since leaving school, and the dream was to become a nurse. But I took a different route as I had children early on.” Despite this change in plans, Joanne’s dedication to caring for others has remained unwavering.

The announcement of Joanne’s new role has been met with an outpouring of congratulations and support from residents, families, and colleagues alike. Her leadership promises to guide Bedford Care Home into a future filled with compassion, excellence, and a genuine sense of belonging for all who walk through its doors.

As Bedford Care Home celebrates Joanne Fishwick’s remarkable 19-year journey and her new role as Home Manager, they look forward to the continued growth and success under her compassionate leadership.
