Meet The Manager

Lola Richards is The Home Manager at Foxburrow Grange.

Lola’s career in healthcare began in 2001 when she took her first role as a support worker in domiciliary care. Lola didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as she did or to find it as fulfilling; it gave her a real sense of helping people.

Lola continued to work in the sector, taking on many roles within care, from support worker, senior support worker and then Deputy Manager, at this time she then moved into the training of the staff and covered a large region of the country.

In 2010, Lola became a Home Manager and then progressed to Operations Manager. In August 2020 she joined Outlook Care as interim Home Manager at Foxburrow Grange where she said ‘we have lots of exciting things to look forward to’.

Our Building and Facilities

We have designed an amazing building which we opened in 2013. Thoughtful interior design creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere – it’s a place where you can feel instantly relaxed – and it reduces stress and improves orientation with unfamiliar surroundings. Each floor is fully accessible by good, spacious lifts.  For added safety, we have installed a fire sprinkler system throughout the building.
