New Oswestry care home welcomes specialist registered managerBluebell View Care Home, a new £12 million state-of-the-art luxury care home, has welcomed a specialist Manager with over 20 years of frontline healthcare experience to oversee its launch. 

Michelle Middleton-Price will join the 80-bedroom care home when it opens in Oswestry this winter. As a registered nurse with additional specialisms in dementia care, Michelle will share her extensive healthcare experience to drive best practice for members of the community receiving residential, nursing and dementia care.
Having entered the NHS as a domestic assistant at the age of 19, Michelle has progressed through the full spectrum of practical and leadership healthcare roles. She will apply this direct experience to guide more than 90 staff who will work at Bluebell View Care Home. 

Michelle has previously managed four homes across the country and has an impressive track record of driving excellence for new and existing homes alike. In 2016, she was responsible for transforming an ‘inadequate’ CQC rated home to achieve ‘good’ ratings in all areas within 18 months. 
Michelle closely shares HC-One’s vision in aiming to provide the kindest care for each and every resident. She extends this caring approach to her colleagues and works closely with them to deliver care and support to residents in a way that they gain the most benefit, in a warm and welcoming home.

Geoff Edwards, Managing Director at HC-One, said: 

“Michelle’s experience and knowledge is phenomenal, and I am completely confident that she and her team with the aid of Michelle’s strong leadership and management skills, will make a massive difference in the local community and enrich the lives of residents living at Bluebell View.

“At HC-One, we strive to be the first-choice care provider for residents and colleagues in every community we serve. As the first HC-One home in the Oswestry area, we are very much looking forward to opening the doors of Bluebell View and working with more talented colleagues in the local area to provide the kindest possible care to elderly people in the local community in our new welcoming, state-of-the-art home.”

Michelle Middleton-Price, Home Manager at Bluebell View Care Home, commented: 

“I can’t wait to join the team at Bluebell View Care Home and put our vision of kind care into action for local Shropshire communities. I was particularly attracted to the role by Bluebell View’s outstanding care facilities and am really excited to take advantage of these to offer the best possible outcomes for our residents and their loved ones. After 23 years working as a health and social care specialist, I can honestly say that making a positive and practical impact on the lives of others motivates me every day. I am privileged to bring this mission to Oswestry and excited to chart its impact on the local community.”
