Morris Care Centre appoints Stacie Smith as home manager

Morris Care Centre provides a wide range of care for people including complex disability care for residents of all ages

Stacie Smith has been appointed as the new home manager for Morris Care Centre, a 96-bed nursing home in Wellington, near Telford in Shropshire. Smith is passionate about driving positive change within the nursing and care home sector and will bring her broad experience of working in homes across the country to her new role.  

Smith’s career in care started as a care home assistant, following which she worked her way up to the role of deputy manager, manager and then area manager across seven homes.  At Morris Care Centre she will lead a dedicated team of over 130 employees providing a wide range of care for people including complex disability care for residents of all ages, as well as respite, convalescence, palliative and dementia care for older people.

Motivated by ensuring all residents are given the highest quality care and are safe and happy, Smith focuses on improving the quality and standards of care in each setting and has previously worked successfully as a turnaround manager for a number of homes throughout the UK.

She already has ambitious plans for the residents at Morris Care Centre, including introducing a revised range of daily activities, revamping the menu and modernising the dining room to provide a more of a restaurant feel. She is also planning a series of trips out for residents in the home’s minibus.

Commenting on her new role, Smith says: “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be Morris Care Centre’s new manager.  It is a thriving and caring home where our residents are at the heart of everything we do. I have always loved working in care and I think my enthusiasm and energy for my job is testament to that.  I believe that happy people make a happy home and I am committed to ensuring all our residents receive the best quality care and that all employees feel valued and respected.”
