Nike Ajewole has taken on the role at Tanglewood Care Homes, which runs care homes in Boston, Coningsby, Spalding, Horncastle, Lincoln, and Alford, plus bungalows for the elderly in Spalding and Horncastle.
Nike joined Tanglewood in 2003 as a nurse at Hunters Creek Care Home in Boston, where she quickly advanced to the positions of floor manager and deputy manager.
She secured her first registered manager position at Tanglewood, Horncastle, the business’ first care home, before transferring to Cedar Falls Care Home, its flagship site in Spalding.
There, still working as registered manager, her achievements included: setting up the home’s monthly Memory Lane Cafe, dementia workshops, representing Tanglewood in several national research projects, and taking on the additional title of operations director for the company.
She said she was ‘very proud’ to take her place on the board at Tanglewood.
“As managing director my objective will be to make sure that every person who lives in our care homes will enjoy an inclusive community that enables them to live their best life possible through outstanding care,” she said. “We have some of the most dedicated staff in the region, and through a continuous programme of training, learning and development we will work together to focus on being outstanding for the benefit of our residents and the Tanglewood community.”
Cedar Falls will now be managed by Anita Malkevica, who has worked as deputy to Nike.
