8 new staff taken on to accomodate expansion and improvement of Harrogate care home


Executive Care’s Crystal Court Care Home in Pannal has recently been comprehensively improved and this has resulted in a need to expand the already 70 strong team of dedicated staff at the premises.   The manager of the care home has this week announced that 8 new members of staff have joined to assist in providing a first-class service at the home.

Amongst the 8 new members of the team, a new full-time administrator (Jane Nixson) will now greet visitors at reception, and will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the administration of the home.

In terms of specialist care staff, new registered General Nurses and registered Mental Nurses including Liz Campbell, Anne Watters, Richard Barratt and Miriam Mofokeng, have joining the team.  The team of supporting care staff has also increased, with the addition of Hannah Hoffman and finally, the kitchen has a new chef; Stephanie Van Der Henst has joined the team as second cook.

The manager of the 62-bed care home, Clare Cowgill explained the sudden growth in the team. She said:

“As we have expanded the home, and invested in its fixtures and fittings offering the nicest surroundings, we are also keen to ensure that we give the best care in the area.  We have 54 residents and over 70 staff, with the space for just 8 more residents now the work is complete. The new staff will more than cater for the new residents, although we are always on the look out for reliable recruits and bank staff!”

Crystal Court offers a range of elderly support from residential, nursing and dementia care. It is a 62 bed home, that offers a socially stimulating environment.

Prior to Christmas 2012, the home underwent significant refurbishment with building works, including an extension to allow wheelchairs through the main entrance and the remodeling of the interior layout.

The owner, Executive Care Group, has also invested in a full redecoration, new flooring throughout and brand new fixtures, fittings and furniture throughout the entire home.

The care home now boasts excellent socialising and entertainment areas especially the cafe area which offers an ideal place to relax and meet new people while the large lounge areas host a variety of great entertainment.
