Jas studied law, qualifying as a Solicitor, and has been running the legal departments for technology companies.

Nirmal – I provide oversight for the operation of Byway House supported by Erin Crisp and her entire team. I am committed to maintaining the highest standards of care for all our residents at all times by our dedicated care team, who are devoted and passionate about care. I left Royal Brompton Hospital in 2019 as I was keen to focus my entire time operating our care homes and ensuring our care homes are progressive and forefront of any changes in the healthcare sector and also making sure I am available at all times for our residents’ families.

My love of cooking led me to a new work path, and I’ve spent many years providing home-cooked, tasty, healthy meals for residents.

I like socialising with our residents and cooking meals according to their preferences.
