Annie SinnottAnnie Sinnott MBE, owner of the Old Vicarage care home in Leigh, Dorset and one of the care sector’s leading lights, sadly died after a very short illness on Sunday, April 17th.

Annie and her staff at the Old Vicarage have won many awards for the excellence of their care and not least for Annie’s long commitment to staff development and training. The Old Vicarage is one of the very few care homes to have been rated as Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission.

Annie’s passing is a sad loss to the care sector and everyone at Caring Times gives their sincere condolences to Annie’s husband Ian and their family.
