Our home in Wigan was purchased in 1995 and opened in 1996 after renovations were completed. Jah-Jireh Wigan is different from our other care homes as it is also registered as a Nursing Home and cares for some of our more frail residents. We care for the elderly and also some younger brothers and sisters who have physical disabilities. It is a two storey building with lounges and sitting areas on both levels. The lounges and dining room overlook the gardens which are beautifully maintained with comfortable sitting areas that can be utilised for entertaining visitors.
We have nurses on duty 24 hours a day who work under the close direction of both our Nursing Manager (an RGN) and Business Manager, along with a team of experienced carers, 40% of which have been working with us for more than 5 years.

As Wigan is a Nursing Home the structure of the management team is a little different to the other homes. Therefore we have Kay Smith as our Clinical Lead Nurse, who has been a qualified nurse for over 30 years and worked mainly in mental health and also has a lot of experience in working with people suffering from dementia. Kay particularly enjoys working with the elderly and loves that she is now caring for brothers and sisters which has ignited her love of the job.
The registered manager is Tracey Gandesha who has been working with us since 2003 and has been working in the care sector since she was 16 years old. Tracey and her husband Manna have many years experience managing the Blackpool home together before moving to Wigan and Manna, as a Senior Support Manager will provide excellent support to the whole team as his approach to caring for the folks and their spirituality and person centred care is his focus, this being a big asset for Wigan with the opening of the dementia area.
The business manager is Matthew Dawson who has been working with us since 2002 and cares for the finances and management of the building along with housekeeping and kitchen services which includes nutrition and infection control.
