Adlington Management Services appoints General Manager for new Sheffield development
The management arm of Adlington Retirement Living has appointed a general manager to its new development in Sheffield.
Lesley Tattershall now leads a team of nine (six duty managers, two housekeepers and a maintenance technician) at Jacobs Gate in Sheffield.
With more than 16 years of experience in health and social care, Lesley is excited about putting her skills to good use in a very different environment with Adlington Management Services.
Lesley said: “I love the community spirit that Adlington Retirement Living offers and the fact that we encourage independent living but we’re also always there to support our homeowners with anything they need. I know how important social interaction and having a sense of belonging can be in later life, so I’m excited to be part of our new community at Jacobs Gate.”
Adlington Retirement Living, which has always designed and built its own schemes, brought the management of its retirement communities in-house with the launch of Adlington Management Services in 2019.
Ed Gladman, Managing Director of Adlington Retirement Living, said: “Our move to manage our own developments is part of our strategy for long term growth. It ensures we can provide a consistently outstanding service to our Homeowners.”
Lesley added: “We welcomed our first Homeowners to Jacobs Gate at the start of December so we had to quickly adapt to the challenges of lockdown to provide them with as much support as possible. My team have been taking coffee to our Homeowners every morning and having a chat with them, doing bits of shopping if they need anything, collecting prescriptions and helping to arrange their vaccinations.
“Our catering team have been fantastic. Obviously, our on-site restaurant hasn’t been able to open during the lockdown period, so instead we’ve been preparing and delivering freshly cooked lunchtime meals to Homeowners’ front doors and then our team have been delivering afternoon tea and cake to them too. When it was World Book Day, our chef created a special themed menu, which was very popular.
“I think it’s made a huge difference to our Homeowners and it’s also given their families peace of mind.”
Adlington Retirement Living develops and operates high-end, purpose-built retirement communities in the North West, Yorkshire and The Midlands.
