THE BEST CARE STARTS WITH THE BEST PEOPLE

When you walk into Charlton Grange you will notice something unique – it’s our people. As a family-run home, we believe professional and sensitive care should be about one thing — quality in everything we do. Family values run deep and we believe the best care starts with the best people.

Registered Manager

I am a qualified registered general nurse and started my nursing career in Poland in 2011, where I undertook my core training. I moved to the UK in 2013 and have worked as a senior staff nurse for the likes of Imperial College and Care UK specialising in palliative care. I was offered the chance to move into management in 2018 with Care UK and when offered the chance to manage my own home proudly took on the challenge.

I have a passion for delivering care and in my spare time love nothing more than meeting with family and friends, getting stuck into a book and going to the theatre, preferably the west end!

Deputy Manager/Relationship Manager

A qualified lawyer by trade, after spending time in the care home as a carer for two years I decided to give up law and follow my passion for care and give it my full attention.

Moving to a new role within the sector was a challenge at first but having spent has been exactly what I needed: I am now helping older people and their families at a time when they really need help and support. I am very proud of the environment we have at home and there is nothing more rewarding than supporting residents and families with difficult choices.

Head Chef

I am passionate about great food, and about helping to change the way care home catering is viewed. Being a part of Charlton Grange and Catering Plus partnership make this home a great place to work for its forward-thinking approach to food and dining for older people.

Standards are the key to success, so, coming into the home from the start, my priorities have been to set up the kitchen properly: setting robust standards and getting the right team together so we can meet and maintain our own high standards.
Quality and attention to detail are vital, and I love getting to know residents’ preferences and then creating dishes that they’ll enjoy.

Lifestyle Lead

I am an experienced lifestyle lead having trained at other homes, I find nothing more fulfilling than seeing residents’ faces light up when we have pet therapy in or we play some scrabble really makes my job worthwhile. If I can make just a small, positive difference to their later life care, then I am happy.

Maintenance Lead

I was a general builder before I moved joined Charlton Grange, I was looking for something more stable and that I could leave my footprint on.

I think a ‘can do’ attitude is all-important in a role like this. You never quite know what each day will bring, and you have to have the skills and approach to take everything in your stride. I like the sense of achievement that comes with completing all the tasks on my to-do list. It’s important to be efficient and do what you promise to do.

One of the main things I’m enjoying in this new role is building new friendships with the residents and their families.

Head Housekeeper

My background is in care home housekeeping, but when I saw this role, I thought I’d like to use my experience and manage a team.

In my role, organisation is key to success. For that reason, the morning is my favourite time of the day as it’s my opportunity to help my team to get organised and know what they need to achieve that day.

I love going the extra mile to ensure residents are comfortable and happy. I’m looking forward to creating a happy, close-knit Housekeeping team where colleagues are passionate about the work they do and the difference they can make to residents.

Nurses

The Nursing team at Charlton Grange is full of energy, passion and willingness to provide the best service for our residents. We provide 24/7 support with respect and dignity and take pleasure in being a part of our resident’s lives.

Our team consist of 10 highly experienced registered nurses, all of whom have a minimum of 10 years nursing experience from various specialities including A&E, geriatric, cardiology, ITU and palliative care to name a few.

Nurses are available to provide an update on care and work very closely with the GP to ensure a high quality of care is delivered.

 

 

Carers

At Charlton Grange we feel quality and consistent care is essential to helping new residents settle and important for existing residents to know who is caring for them on a day to day basis, this removes any anxiety and improves the experience for all. Consistency also means staff are able to spot any changes in behaviour – which allows us to respond quicker and provider better care.

Our care team consists of 40 carers, all with various levels of experience but have the same passion for care, we do not use agency staff in our home as we feel this reduces the level of service our residents deserve.

The team are welcoming and always willing to listen, share and discuss any topic that’s important to you.

Thank you for looking after Linda, the last few months were very difficult for myself and the family, but knowing that she was receiving excellent care has always helped ease any frustration about not being able to care for her at home. I would like to wish Daria and the team all the best and thank them for their compassion towards Linda and our family.

Charlton Grange is the best place I could have found for my aunt. We looked at many care homes around the area, and even trialled some for respite. Unfortunately, the other care homes really let us down. When we approached Charlton Grange, they were extremely helpful with the whole process.The staff are very caring, patient and attentive. Management are always on site to help and the activities are amazing!! There are exercise classes too- which means my aunt is getting out of bed and is really taken of. I have recommended Charlton Grange to many, and will continue to do so!

Since I have joined Charlton Grange, I have learnt a lot from the management, the rest of the team members and from every aspect of my job. I also appreciate the support whenever I need and the continuous encouragement at work.

Working with the residents is the great and just having a small chat with a resident can make their mood change. Making people smile is what really makes this job worth it.

Staff come in and see me and talk to me about my family. I really enjoy it when they stop for a chat.

Covid-19 Latest

These are unprecedented times for us all. Rest assured we are doing everything that we can to safeguard the health of our residents and staff.

Coronavirus can make anyone seriously ill, but for the elderly, the risk is higher, likely reflecting the presence of other diseases, a weaker immune system, or simply worse overall health.

As such we have temporarily restricted visits to the home to only those deemed vital or essential (e.g. medical professionals and end of life visits) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These decisions are made on a case-by-case basis by the home manager. We appreciate this is difficult for family members and friends who would like to visit their loved ones, but we do this with the best intentions to keep the home and our residents safe from the risk of infection.

For all those concerned, Charlton Grange is here to provide support and guidance in these trying times. Please contact the home if you have any further questions.
