Welcome to Windmill Court
My name is Julie Barton and I qualified in the early 80s as a Nurse in Salford Greater Manchester. I spent the early part of my career in the Neurosurgical ICU and General ICU, then moved onto working in the stroke rehab unit which led me to my passion in working in elder care sector. In addition to working in the NHS for the bulk of my early career I have also worked in other sectors settings both public and private.I relocated to Cornwall 2 years ago and managed a service in Penzance – Care Home with Nursing before taking up the position of care home manager here at Windmill court.
I believe that the focus of care should be resident led and we have lots of exciting plans here at Windmill Court to enable our residents as well as staff – for example we now have a “resident committee” with two spokespersons who will be the point of call for all queries on how we provide care and make people safe.
