Kim Harding

General Manager

I have worked in the Care Sector for over 30 years and for the past 20 years I have been in management roles ranging from Home Manager of Nursing Homes and Regional roles for other Corporate Care Providers. I have ‘grown up’ in care and was able to develop professionally and achieve professional qualifications throughout my career in order to achieve my personal objectives and goals. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to join the team at Signature at Bassett. The Company’s Mission, Principles and Core Values truly resonate with me, as this needs to be at the heart of everything that we do in order that we provide our residents with the best of everything.

Signature at Bassett is a place that is not only a Home to our residents but our staff also, we are all one family and one team supporting each other every step of the way. I feel incredibly proud and blessed that I am able to work in such a friendly and welcoming environment.

Joanne Brown

Deputy Manager

I have been in the Care sector in various roles since I was 18 years old, during this time I have seen the best of mankind. My love has always been talking to people and finding out their life history as we all have a story to tell, and working within the homes I have been able to meet some fantastic individuals with amazing stories. I am qualified as Nurse, Midwife and Paramedic, and this training has enhanced my insight into what the residents don’t always tell us, as they are concerned that they are a nuisance or don’t want to bother us; my answer is, and will always be, if you have concerns then I have concerns, we need to protect and reassure our older members of society as one day it will be us. We are a family and we look out for each other.

My role is supported by a dedicated team who are passionate about delivering exceptional person-centred care. Nothing is more rewarding than making a positive contribution to the daily lives of each and every one of our residents.

I am delighted to be the Assisted Living Coordinator here at Signature at Bassett. Since I achieved Bachelor degree in nursing, I was very fortunate to work in Emergency unit for 10 years and gain huge experience in delivering professional and friendly approach for every patient of the hospital. After 10 years of delivering nursing care in a busy hospital, it was time for me to obtain even more experience and to develop myself in the private sector.
