The Owner

Born in Dundee, Scotland, Irene grew up in Eccles, Manchester and attended Eccles Grammar School. She qualified as a nurse at Hope Hospital Salford in 1979 and has since gained additional qualifications in teaching and management.

In 1993 Irene began working as a registered nurse in a Newcastle upon Tyne nursing home where she soon progressed to management level. Irene has managed care homes in the North East and the Midlands.

Taking over ownership of Blackrod House in May 2007, Irene’s main goals are to provide a home from home, delivering the best possible care to all residents at all times, offering a comfortable homely environment with assistance available for residents at whatever level their needs dictate.

The Manager

Jeanette was born in Chorlton-cum Hardy, Manchester, and attended Fred Longworth High School for Girls. Since leaving school Jeanette has had many and varied career changes. Her achievements started with qualifying and working as a dental nurse; she then went on to attend Bolton Catering College, and from there to owning and running her own café.

Jeanette began her career in care in 1999, starting in the community, caring for people in their own homes, followed by a stint in day care before going on to work in a large BUPA home as the manager of the elderly residential care unit.

Jeanette joined Blackrod House in 2012, bringing with her not only a wealth of experience, but also lots of fresh ideas and innovations which help to make life easier not only for the residents, but for the staff as well.

Jeanette is committed to providing person-centred care for all our residents
