Michelle Medway

General Manager

Welcome to Alice Grange Care Home, my name is Michelle and I am the General Manager here.

I qualified as an Enrolled nurse in 1991, then shortly after joined the  Royal Navy as a Queen Alexandra Royal Naval Nurse.

Shortly after joining I was medically discharged due to an injury, so I moved home and worked for an agency for a while.

I then worked my way up the ranks within the community hospital setting from an Enrolled Nurse to A ward sister during which time I did my conversion course to gain RGN status and my BSc in Nursing Practice.

The majority of my Nursing career has been based in the care home or community setting, and care homes is definitely where my heart lies.

I have been at the Alice Grange for over a year now as the Home Nurse Specialist, and have been recently promoted to General Manager. I really enjoy my job, the home has come a long way in the last year and we will continue to make improvements.

To do this I will work closely with my newly appointed heads of unit and enhance best practice for our residents.

Amanda Fletcher


As the Hostess, I am responsible for serving food and drinks at meal times in the dining rooms and bedrooms. My duties also include setting up and clearing the dining rooms whilst maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and organisation at all times. I check the daily menus and visit each resident to ask what meals they would like, whilst liaising with the Head Chef regarding any special meal requests made by residents.

I love to bring a smile to residents' faces, so I spend as much time with them as possible with a friendly, polite and courteous attitude at all times.

I love my job - it brings me great pleasure to make a difference to people's lives, and that residents are well looked after.
