Alice Mitroi - the Royal Alfred Seafarers' Society's newly appointed Home Manager

Specialist maritime charity and care home The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society has made major appointments to its senior team following the retirement of two of its longest-standing team members. 

Former Home Manager Anne Kasey and Margaret Brazier MNM, Executive Assistant to the CEO, served the Society for more than 90 years collectively. In their place, the Society has made a number of internal promotions to fill the vacant roles. Alice Mitroi is the new Home Manager at Belvedere House – the Society’s nursing care home – and Luiza Jipa replaces Alice as Deputy Clinical Manager after four years as a nurse and Infection Prevention & Control Lead at the home.

Maria Jobson, who has worked at the Society since 2014 following her 10-year career in the Civil Service, has been promoted to Head of Administration Services & PA to the CEO. Maria is now the first point of contact for potential residents and their families, ensuring they have all the information they need about the care and associated services available at the Royal Alfred.

The Society, which delivers expert care to former seafarers and their dependants, including those living with dementia, supports nearly 70 residents at its Banstead-based care home, and provides sheltered accommodation for 24 individually living tenants. Alice’s new role will be focused on ensuring smooth operations at the home so that the team can continue to provide the highest quality of care for its residents.

Alice has worked in the care industry since the age of 19 and, having joined the Royal Alfred as a staff nurse in 2016 and progressing to Deputy Clinical Manager, became Home Manager at Belvedere House at the end of 2020. With a Master’s in Management of Health & Social Care, a Bachelor’s Degree in General Nursing and in Social Work, and a diploma in Dementia Care, Alice brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the care of residents in the home’s dedicated dementia wing.

Now, with a team of 19 comprising of the nursing and activities teams, Alice is responsible for the overall running of the home. 

The Society’s CEO, Commander Brian Boxall-Hunt, added: “We’re delighted to have Alice as our new Home Manager, she has become an extremely valued member of the team here at the Royal Alfred and we’re pleased to be able to help her move up in her career with the Society. Alice has been integral to helping the Society navigate the challenges presented to us in 2020 and I know she will do the same in 2021 as Home Manager – I’m confident that she will take Belvedere House from strength to strength.”
