Raciel Sagun

General Manager

I am the General Manager of Alice grange. Inspiring and leading the onsite team and to ensure high standards of governance and compliance are my responsibility for overall service.

Over the last 14 years I have the privilege of serving the healthcare sector through managing and leading frontline care services for our elderly population. I have come into contact with many individuals who have willingly shared their life experiences and wisdom. This has reinforced my sense of duty and heightened my level of respect for our elders.

My passion is person cantered care. I truly believe in the values of responsibility, integrity, kindness, compassion and doing what we can do to others. I love to see my residents happy with a full smile in their face, content and have quality of life whilst in our care.

The team and I are fully committed to embedding the core principles of empathy, care, compassion and integrity in to the Alice grange community.

My door is always open: do not hesitate to come and talk to me, should you need anything.

Rashmi Nair

Senior Registered Nurse

I worked as a carer from 2010 and then qualified as an RGN in 2013. I have always worked in Dementia Care through a number of different settings including hospitals and other care homes.

I started working at Alice Grange in 2015 and I love it here. Barchester care homes have much better facilities and people than many other settings. The management and staff here work really well together and it means this is a brilliant home to work in.

I am now privileged to be part of the team on our Memory Lane community, where we strive to make sure that each resident feels at home and that each family knows their loved one is being looked after by truly caring professionals.
