Meet the Team
Geraldine Boyce – Home Manager
Geraldine trained in Belfast City Hospital in 1977. She was a staff nurse in a busy Medical Ward when she decided to train as a midwife in the Jubilee Hospital. After qualifying, Geraldine realised this was not the field she wanted to work in so she started a very interesting phase in her career working in the security wing in Musgrave Park Hospital. This was a special unit set up to treat patients from the various prisons in the country and was a really interesting job.
After marrying and having children, Geraldine worked as a Community Nurse for several years and really enjoyed looking after people in their own homes. She started her first job in a Care Home 20 years ago and has stayed in this field of nursing ever since. She really enjoys working with the elderly and finds it a very rewarding job.
The most important thing for Geraldine now in her current role as Manager is that the Residents in the Home have a comfortable, safe, happy place to live where they can live the rest of their lives being looked after by caring staff who will treat them all as individuals.
We can’t thank the staff at Glebe Care Centre enough for looking after our father during the last years of his life. A keen gardener, he loved spending time in the beautiful gardens and he was always kept busy with games, activities and special days out.
I looked at lots of different care homes for my mum but it was only when I visited Glebe Care Centre that I thought it was the right fit. The staff, the homely atmosphere, the gardens and activities were just what we were looking for – and best of all my mum loves her new home.
