Vida Healthcare appoints manager for flagship dementia home

Vida Healthcare has appointed Victoria Edwards as manager of its flagship Vida Grange dementia care home in Harrogate.

Edwards, who has worked in adult social care since 2007, will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the home and lead a team of 250.

Edwards previously carried out roles including regional hospitality specialist, general manager and senior general manager at Barchester Healthcare, where she was responsible for commissioning and running a group of 60 homes.

She has a master’s degree in business management and in 2017 she was recognised as Outstanding in the caring domain by the Care Quality Commission.

“I’m honoured to be given a role at such a well respected, innovative care home with an award-winning team,” said Edwards.

“Vida Healthcare’s person-centred philosophy of care really stood out to me and I’m excited to preserve the homes’ ‘Outstanding’ rating by successfully running its operations, ensuring the continued safety of its residents, providing advice and support to residents, families and staff and most importantly, delivering compassionate care for people’s loved ones,” she added.

Vida Healthcare managing director James Rycroft said: “ Despite the recruitment challenges we currently face in our sector, we are continuing to invest in our staff and we’re always on the lookout for brilliant nurses, carers and managers, like Victoria, to join us.”
