Meet The Manager

Susannah Barker-Milan is Manager at Monson Retirement Home.

I’m delighted to be the Monson manager.

I have a wealth of experience managing both nursing and residential care homes, with specialist expertise in dementia care.

As well as managing care homes, I’ve spent some of my career working at Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) in numerous roles spanning home care management, home care and residential care development.

Whilst working at LCC, I was afforded an opportunity to undertake research, alongside the Bradford University Dementia Group, to explore dementia care mapping use in supported living. One of my previous roles was Head of Dementia Care at Country Court Care, then taking on the Registered Manager role across two sites providing residential and nursing care for up to 72 residents.

I strongly believe that the people who choose to live at Monson deserve to receive good care as standard and have people supporting them who understand what “Outstanding Care” is all about, and strive to provide it.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.
