Meet The Manager

Stacey Parkhill is The Home Manager at Bluebell Nursing Home.

I have worked in the Care sector since 2004, and have worked for Bluebell since 2007. I started as a care assistant completing my level 3 in Health and Social Care and progressing to senior carer. In 2018 I achieved my level 5 in Leadership for Health and Social Care, and taking on a role as Training Officer more recently, where I gained more experience.

I am delighted at the opportunity of a managerial role, and with my extensive knowledge of Bluebell and our residents I continue to be an asset to our team. My vision for Bluebell is continue to provide a high standard of care for all our residents and to facilitate training opportunities for our compassionate and incredibly committed carers and staff.

Stacey Parkhill

Welcome to Bluebell Nursing Home! We are located close to the beautiful Southsea beach of Portsmouth. Our team of carers and qualified nurses have over 40 years of experience and support residents with a variety of complex health needs, including dementia and sensory impairments.
