Meet The Manager

Eva Trochim is Home Manager at Galsworthy House Nursing Home.

As Home Manager I enjoy the variety and challenges which each day brings at a care home. I have been impressed with how the team at Galsworthy House genuinely know the residents as individuals and treat everyone with such care and respect.

It is my responsibility to ensure that our residents receive the best care possible, that they are listened to and that their needs are met. It is a team effort and we all need to work together to ensure the development of the home is the best it can be for the residents and staff.

When residents choose to make Galsworthy House their home 'everyday' things will remain just as they like it, with careful note taken of their preferences, from waking times to food choices, hobbies and interests.

I am also looking forward to building strong relationships with the local community and being active in exploring the surrounding area.
