Resident Jill presents Hayley with flowers.

Residents and colleagues at Henley House care home in Ipswich, gave a warm welcome to their brand-new home manager, Hayley Salter, last week.

Henley House’s residents and colleagues threw a welcome party for Hayley in the home’s much-loved Sky Bar, where everybody had the opportunity to get to know Hayley over a cocktail and a piece of cake.

One resident, Jill (pictured), presented Hayley with a bouquet of flowers on behalf of all residents and colleagues.

Hayley is an Ipswich local and brings a wealth of experience to the Greensleeves Care home, having worked in the care industry for over 20 years.

Hayley started her career as a community carer in the Ipswich area and worked her way up to a senior position. She then transferred to a home in Essex where she worked as a deputy home manager before being promoted to home manager as she worked towards her Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Health and Social Care.

Hayley is thrilled to be working in Ipswich once again, especially as Henley House has fostered such strong relationships with the local community.

Hayley elaborates on this, saying:

“My vision for Henley House is to continue to build on the links that we have with the local community and build new ones in the process. I hope that everyone in the local area will have a chance to see what a fantastic home we have, which is filled with love and laughter and endless cups of tea!”

Hayley also describes her vision for Henley House under her management:

“I feel that as a manager it is important to lead by example within the team and to consistently support the staff to ensure that our residents feel safe and secure in their home.”

“I am very excited to be part of Greensleeves Care, a fantastic company who focus on making every day special for our residents and I am looking forward to getting to know the staff, residents, and relatives as I start my new journey with them.”
