Another #TeamTuesday and we’d love to introduce Lorna Smith, Home Manager of Goodwins Hall Care Home in Kings Lynn.
Lorna is our Home Manager at Goodwins Hall and joined Athena in 2015.With a long and fulfilling career in the care sector, Lorna began nursing in 1979. She has since enjoyed working across oncology, burns and plastics, occupational health which therefore led her to her true passion in caring for the elderly. She has experience working across many large hospitals in London and has treated and care for a wide variety of people.
Lorna decided to switch up her career and take a job where her passion lies. With 9 years managing a Bupa Care Home before joining our Athena family, Lorna regularly comments on how she absolutely loves every moment of her job, “I’m happy if they’re happy – if they’re not then I’m not! I’m so passionate to provide the highest level of care and ensure our residents and my team feels like one big Athena family.”
Starting off as Sister of a Unit at Aria Court, Lorna quickly progressed to Home Manager at Goodwins Hall. She soon discovered that the residents became the very essence of her working life.
In her personal life, Lorna is very much a family person. She just adores being an auntie and considers her two sisters to be her absolute best friends. Living on the stunning Norfolk coast, Lorna can often be found with her nose in a book or enjoying long walks along the beautiful coastline.
Lorna gives a great tour of our homes which includes tea, coffee and biscuits over a chat in Goodwin’s cafe. If you’d like to learn more about the home or arrange a safe viewing, please to give us a call or email.
