Mavern House appoints Rosie Hardie as its new home manager

Maven House is 54-bed care home in Shaw, Wiltshire, that provides nursing, dementia, residential and respite care

Mavern House, a 54-bed care home, which provides nursing, dementia, residential and respite care for up to 54 residents and  is located in the village of Shaw near Melksham in Wiltshire, has appointed Rosie Hardie as its new care home manager.  A trained nurse, Hardie brings a broad experience of working in social care, both within the NHS and the private sector, together with a passion for improving the lives of older people.

Commenting on her new role, Hardie says: “I am delighted to be Mavern House’s new care home manager and to be joining such a committed and well-established team.  Mavern House is a vibrant and happy home where the residents are always well-looked after.

“In addition to building great relationships with the residents and the caring team here, one of my first priorities will be to develop closer ties with the wider Shaw community and to introduce intergenerational activities with local primary schools.  I’m looking forward to making my contribution to ensuring the lives of our residents continue to be happy, purposeful and dignified.”

Hardie began her career as a nurse, working as a community district nurse for eight years.  She then moved to the NHS’s crisis intervention team in North Wales where she helped to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions by ensuring the right care packages were in place for some of society’s most vulnerable people.  She worked her way up to lead the team, eventually managing a group of over 20 people.

Moving to the private sector, Hardie took on the challenge of helping to establish a new dementia village in Chester by joining the commissioning management team for the project.  She was then head-hunted to be a regional manager across six care homes in North Wales and Chester. 

Hardie’s move to Mavern House follows a family relocation to Wiltshire and her desire to focus her attention on enhancing the quality and standards of care in a single home, where she feels she can have the greatest impact.
