Jacqui Smith

Jacqueline Smith

Regional Manager South

Working for eleven years as a Social Worker and Team Manager in Adult Services, Jacqueline relished supporting care providers with their safeguarding, quality and compliance requirements. Based on this experience, she then sought a move into working with a residential care provider. Jacqueline approached Allegra Care first, as she felt that the company’s values, care principles and household model aligned very closely with her own vision of what good care should look like. As Regional Manager, her passion for outstanding care is self-evident as she supports homes and colleagues across Hampshire. She also thinks laughter is a great tonic – and her cheeky sense of humour is infectious.

Away from work, Jacqueline enjoys eating out, cinema and horse racing. As a mother of two grown up children, she enjoys spending time with her friends, her family and her two grandchildren.

My father has settled in very well and seems very happy at the New Forest Nursing Home. The staff are all cheerful and friendly and look after him very well. He is very complimentary about the standard of the food, which he enjoys. Overall the home appears to be very well run by a dedicated and responsive management team.
