Our Managerial Staff at Primrose Lodge Care Home Southbourne


Anita Collier - Manager

I started in care about 20 years ago, I never expected to choose this career path, but ever since I began I haven’t looked back. Seeing someone smile makes every day worth it. Achieving the best outcome for our residents is what makes my job so rewarding. I am so proud of the staff at Primrose Lodge Care Home, they are dedicated, passionate and caring, we are like family. Our team provides exceptional, high-quality care in Bournemouth, with plenty of laughter and fun along the way. We believe that the people are what makes a place, so here at Primrose, we have formed a wonderful team that makes the place thrive.

As the Manager of Primrose Lodge, I oversee everything that goes on around the home, ensuring that the residents are flourishing and the team are well and caring with excellence. Also, I work behind the scenes to get the home the recognition it deserves, always looking to improve in whatever ways we can.

Fran Fitzgerald - Deputy Manager

I started in care around 11 years ago, I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else because I love working with the elderly and making a difference in their daily life. We have a great team of staff who go above and beyond for all residents at Primrose Lodge. We are a big family and enjoy working together as part of a team. I achieved my level 5 in health and social care which has given me more confidence within my job role as Deputy Manager. Now I strive to make Primrose Lodge a better place and an even greater family with each passing day so that each person at our Southbourne Care Home feels well cared for and at home.
