Client Liaison Manager

Louise Palmer

I have been in sales most of my career, recently I have been working with those who were requiring more care also in the property market for those wishing to downsize which comes with a personal involvement. Having had to research a care home for my mother-in-law, I realized that the role of Client Liaison was one that I wanted to pursue. I am looking to forward to working at Ascot Grange to help support those looking for care or a life style change, it will be rewarding to get to know the residents in such lovely surroundings and with the dedicated staff.
