Saying farewell to Philomena


Philomena Kavanagh, Home Manager for Whitgift House, leaves the Foundation after 17 years to enjoy more time with her family.

She will be sadly missed by residents, their families, friends, and staff alike who recognise the incredible contribution she has made to the Foundation over the years.

Everyone wishes her well and knows how excited she is about the imminent arrival of her third grandchild. She has promised not to be a stranger so we look forward to seeing her at forthcoming events.

We are delighted to welcome Joe Patterson who will be taking over the role. Joe shares Philomena’s passion for care and joins us with over 20 years’ experience in the care sector. He will be a very valuable and welcome member of the Whitgift Care leadership team.
