STAFF at Milford House Care Home have welcomed a new General Manager to head up the team.

Agnieszka Musial, who likes to be called Aga, will oversee the running of the 70-bed home and will be responsible for the team of almost 100 employees. 

Aga has worked in the health and social care sector for the past 15 years where she has managed various adult care settings ranging from learning disabilities, specialist neurobehavioural homes and, what she describes as her real passion, elderly care.

For me, this is what working in care has always been about, and I know that I can continue delivering this mission with the support of my wonderful colleagues at Milford House.”

Johanna Fitzgerald, the regional operations director for Milford House, said: “I delighted to welcome Aga to the team here at Milford House as I know that she will continue our commitment to providing high quality care and I am sure that she will be a big hit with our residents.”
