Meet Our Home Manager

Nicolas Kee Mew

Hi my name is Nicolas Kee Mew and I am the new Peripatetic Manager at Frank Foster House. I have 18 years of experience working in Social Care. My journey in social care started at Frank Foster House in 2006 as a cleaner and I have spent 7 years working from carer to care team manager. I have decided to come back to Runwood Homes after 11 years to support the homes. I am based at Frank Foster House at present.

I have run some outstanding care homes in the past from not for profits to private care homes. I have an MSC in Dementia Studies from Stirling University.

You will also meet Elia my 10 years old Schnauzer dog who is an emotional support registered dog.

I am also a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society for the past 10 years and in 2022 I won a British Citizen Award for Voluntary Work for Dementia.

I look forward to meet you all!
