Meet our fabulous team of kind, dedicated, and passionate staff who have been specially selected and trained to provide the very best care with compassion, warmth and respect.
As Home Manager I am in charge of the quality of care we deliver. I am proud to be responsible for everything that I and my team do. Managing Layston Grove is both challenging and rewarding as I have to ensure our high standards are met and we deliver our promise of providing the best care, every day to every one.
Catering and Hospitality Manager
I have been a chef for over 30 years. I’ve worked in the care industry for 10 years and previously in Hotels and 5 star restaurants. I manage a wonderful team of 5 and together we organise special events such as pop up restaurants for residents and their families.
Front of House Manager
I have worked in an administrative role for 13 years within the care industry. I love the challenges of my role as Front of House Manager here at Layston Grove as it so varied. I welcome all the residents and their families so I get to know them well and try to help wherever I can.
I am very passionate about getting the most out of everyday life whatever that might be. I love organising activities and encouraging all the residents to get involved. I can see what an impact it makes on their quality of life and how much more improved their outlook is if they have been busy. I have worked in the care industry for many years and still love what I do.
Front of House Assistant
My previous background was working within the fresh produce industry for 14 years. I only started my career in the care industry 7 months ago so a big change. I really enjoy the various roles I carry out and feel like I’m now in a job where I make a difference. I assist all front of house duties and also welcome new visitors in the home and show them how lovely it is to live here.
I have worked in adult health and social care for 13 years. Before I joined Layston Grove, I was a matron in a residential care home in Cheltenham but relocated to Hertfordshire where I started as a senior carer and have now taken on the role of Deputy Manger. It is a very rewarding job and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the residents and their families.
