My name is Annie Frobisher and I am the Registered Manager of Melmount Manor in Strabane, I have had this privilege since December 2010.
Prior to moving into the private sector I had a long and varied career with South West Yorkshire NHS Trust. My role for the last five years with the Trust was managing the Dementia Services within the Wakefield and Pontefract area, which meant I managed four community day service units, four inpatient units, the Memory Service and the Care Home Liaison Service.
Although I am a native of Northern Ireland, I spent all of my nursing career in England, apart from two years working in the Borders of Scotland.
I completed my nurse training in Chester, gained a Management Certificate with the Institute of Health Care Management at Huddersfield University and a Master’s Degree in Psycho- Social Interventions at York University.
I continue to enjoy my role, striving to provide the highest standards of care for the 81 residents we are privileged to care for at Melmount Manor. I of course could not do this without the support of my dedicated staff group and the support of our providers Care Circle in partnership with Larchwood Care (NI) Ltd.
