We’re delighted to introduce our new home manager David Willis. He has recently rejoined Canford Healthcare after spending a year managing a nursing home in Gillingham.

After spending 20 years as a banker, David took the momentous decision to return to university and qualify as a mental health nurse. He initially worked out in the community, helping people with substance misuse issues, and then moved into caring for the elderly. David performed a number of senior roles, including clinical lead, deputy manager and peripatetic manager for several Canford Healthcare homes, demonstrating versatility and commitment at all times. He left the company a year ago to manage a nursing home in Gillingham but is very pleased to be back with us, working alongside deputy manager Donna Barks and the rest of the Barty House team.

David is passionate about delivering the highest quality of care for residents. He says: “I am delighted to be working at such a lovely home as Barty House and am looking forward to putting the home at the very heart of the local community.”

Do look out for David next time you stop by at the home. He’s more than happy to have a chat!
