Welcome to our care home

The Rowans

People are at the heart of everything we do and our team will support you to make every day in our care home the best it can be for you.  Who you are and who you want to be is our priority.


The Rowans is so much more than a home – it is an integral part of the local community. Located in Bickershaw, a popular suburb of Wigan, The Rowans offers a welcoming and safe environment where you’re among people you love and trust.

We have brought together professional, compassionate teams and smart technology to make every day joyful for the people who share our lives.  It is a place that offers opportunities to enjoy life inside and outside your immediate surroundings.

Our Bracebridge Care ethos is ‘Ohana’ after all which is a Hawaiian word meaning extended family.  It is a word that encapsulates what we strive to create in all our homes – a feeling of security, love and exemplary care.

Sarah Gashi – Home Manager The-Rowens-Bracebridge-23621

Our team

Meet Sarah Gashi, Home Manager of The Rowans

Sarah has been working in care since 1989 starting off as a care assistant on the elderly wards in Aintree hospital. Throughout her career in care, Sarah worked across many areas including learning disabilities, mental health and general medical care.

Sarah’s dream was to become a nurse and she qualified in 2008. Sarah worked on MAU in Aintree Hospital for over 6 years and then went to the district where she ultimately led a team of nurses and care assistants, supporting the community.

Sarah left the NHS and became a complex lead nurse working for an organisation to support people who had become victims of incidents which left them with extensive injuries such as brain injuries, paraplegic or severe epilepsy.

This experience offered Sarah the breadth of experience she needed to undertake care home management, which she has done now for a few years. Sarah is passionate about leading a team, who can enable people to fulfil their aspirations whilst being supported with their needs in a homely, care setting.
