Meet The Manager

Nichola Oldham is The Home Manager at Broomy Hill Nursing Home.

I have 13 years’ experience in the care sector and have recently been appointed manager here at Broomy Hill. I’m dedicated to supporting the team and ensuring that residents have a safe, happy and fulfilled life here with us.

Nichola Oldham

Broomy Hill Nursing Home was first built in the 1900s as a Victorian-era school academy. We’ve kept many of the traditional features and impressive architecture. Yet every part of the building has been completely modernised and updated, making it the safe, secure home-from-home your loved one deserves.

Despite modernisation, we’re committed to making Broomy Hill Nursing Home as homely as possible for our residents. Therefore, you’ll notice our home is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment. It’s being updated, with work carried out considerately and carefully to minimise the disruption to your loved one’s daily life and comfort.

Broomy Hill Nursing Home is designed around a central courtyard to encourage the sense of community and togetherness that’s so important to our residents. Our residents enjoy plenty of natural light throughout our communal areas, and our newly-expanded garden suite opens directly onto a secure, well-maintained garden.
