B&M Care is delighted to announce several new appointments at the group’s Head Office in Hemel Hempstead.
Appointed to strengthen our service and celebrate internal success, these introductions look to further flourishing the group’s operations management team who will continue to collaborate with our homes to instil best practice and exceed the expectations and standards of those considering a B&M Care Home for a loved one.
Who are they? Let's find out...

From commissioning and developing, to holding a senior management position for 15 years, Karen’s skillset has been applied to a range of services – most notably, dementia care. Accepting her position as Head of Governance has meant that Karen now maintains B&M Care’s high standards of compliance, and to support a wider vision in affecting safe, effective and person-centred care.
