A warm welcome to Louise James, our new Complex Care Co-Ordinator.
We asked Louise a few questions to get to know her a little…
How has your career journey brought you to Jane Lewis?
“I have been involved in support services for a long time. Initially I began my career journey by working at a local nursing home, then as a support worker where I supported mainly adults with learning disabilities, the elderly and adults receiving support from mental health services.
For ten years I was a care manager for a private domiciliary care provider and during this time I also supported in delivering training.
After taking a short career break, I was itching to once again become involved in delivering support and took the opportunity to become join the new team as a care coordinator here at Jane Lewis.” Read More
We would like to introduce you to our new Deputy Manager of North West Nursing, Jordan Massey. Jordan is based in our Chester branch and provides support to our nurse and healthcare staff.
Jordan has a varied background, working in various mental health and healthcare settings. This enables her to have a balanced approach and to see things from the point of view of the business, the staff and the clients we supply to.
Jordan is a caring, funny and approachable and is already a valuable member of the North West Nursing team. She enjoys supporting her new colleagues, the people we provide care for and helping the business grow. Jordan’s goal is to enjoy her job so much that it doesn’t feel like work.
Outside of work:
Jordan loves shopping and spending time with her friends and family. Her favourite quote is ‘Born an original, don’t die a copy’.
Staff from our Chester branch took part in this year’s Foamtastic Colour Blast, a fundraising event organised by the Hospice of the Good Shepherd. The 3km fun run is held at the Chester Racecourse and offers entrants the opportunity to get as messy as possible… with no cleaning up! Read More

Our lovely Shrewsbury branch are always keen to get involved with the local community!
Last weekend, along with a local Scout troop, they spent their day manning a water station at The Shrewsbury Half Marathon. With friendly faces and encouraging cheers, they handed tired runners their well-deserved bottles of water en route.
One of the charities supported by the event is Severn Hospice, a charity close to our hearts, as our Resourcer’s mum was treated there before tragically passing away.
If your charity would like to get involved with Jane Lewis please get in touch.
Staff at all branches were invited to bake or buy their choice of cupcakes, culminating in an irresistible display of delicious bakes, from homemade triple chocolate muffins to low-calorie Weightwatchers recipes.
Cakes were bought and enjoyed throughout the day, alongside fun games and a celebrity cupcake quiz.
In total, £184 was raised for the charity, with more to come! Every penny counts in the fight against dementia.
Alzheimer’s Society work towards beating dementia and helping all of those living with the condition to live a better life. From the point of diagnosis onwards, the charity reach out and provide support to everyone who needs it, from online information to local community awareness.
Jane Lewis Marketing Manager, Paula Bellis said, “My dad has had dementia since he was about 65, so I have seen the huge impact the condition has on families; and also, how much of a lifeline charities like Alzheimer’s Society provide.”
