Hi, I'm Lorraine Woods, the Home Manager at Bede House situated in Ryhope. I started my nursing journey at 12 years old when I helped look after my Nana, which lead me at the age of 14 to volunteer at a local hospital, which I worked at every weekend for two years. I have worked in both the private sector and NHS for 37 years. I have gained vast experience throughout my career including the operating department, ITU, Maternity and Elderly Care, all which has given me the skills and knowledge to adapt to my present role. I am very passionate about working with the elderly and know this is where my heart is, finding my job extremely rewarding. Our team at Bede House pride ourselves on delivering personal centred care to a very high standard, we are all very excited to starting this journey together and want to be the best we can be for our residents.
