June Maharaj is a Registered Mental Health Nurse with over 23 years of experience, and has been at Bridge House since opening in 2013. The quality of June’s care has seen her shortlisted for the Southern Regional Care Awards, Care Manager of the Year in 2014. June says “I make sure that my team are well trained, and well looked after so that they have the knowledge, skills and attitude to really make a difference to the lives of our residents”.
“We saw nine homes in total, some had a real sense of caring, others lovely surroundings, but no apparent ‘heart’. We loved Bridge House straight away. June, the manager had a good understanding of dementia and great empathy with the residents. Whilst she showed us the airy, bright, well-kept rooms, all the resident’s eyes lit up as they saw her passing!” – Claire Rogers, resident’s daughter
