My name is Andrea, and I am the General Manager here at Alice Grange. Welcome to our website!
I am very excited to be given the opportunity to manage this fantastic care home. I am very passionate about leadership and providing excellent person-centered care.
I qualified as an RGN in 1998, and have worked at a managerial level since 2000, having also earned my RMA Level 4 (Registered Managers Award). I have a BSc (Hons) in Dementia Studies and, during my spare time, I study cosmetic dermatology.
My vision for Alice Grange is for it to become the best care home in Suffolk and to be awarded Outstanding certification by the Care Quality Commission. Our home will achieve this through delivering high-quality resident-centered care and by creating a whole home community supporting our residents to thrive and enjoy every aspect of life. We will provide all residents with the opportunity to engage in a range of meaningful activities, grow their experiences and learn new skills.
My door will always be open to new ideas and suggestions for improving the lives of our residents.
I qualified as an RGN in 1995 and have worked as a critical care nurse. Andrea Cowely and I have worked together sucessfully in other care establishments, we are a strong team. I am delighted to work with the residents and their families and staff here at Alice Grange.
I am extremely passionate about the work that I do, having many years of experience working at a managerial level, and I believe in delivering the very best in person-centred care.
Hello, my name is Roxanne and I am the Night Nurse Manager here at Alice Grange. I have worked in the care industry for many years now and I love supporting residents to maintain their independence for as long as possible and live a happy and fulfilling life.
Hello, my name is Penny and I am the lead activities co-ordinator here at Alice Grange. I have been working in the care industry for over 7 years now. I started as a support worker but have specialised in activities over 4 years ago. I am very passionate about activities because I love seeing the joy it brings on resident’s faces. My goal is to help the residents in our home live life to the full. In order to be able to do this, it is so important for me to build relationships with both the residents and the families and learn more about those living in our home.
We have a range of activities on offer at Alice Grange, but if you ever have any questions or suggestions then please come and see me!
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 the leading 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.
Hi, my name is Tracey and I am a Hostess here at Alice Grange. I love my job and I love being able to help residents. It is my responsibility to ensure that mealtimes are social and to help keep the residents topped up with tea and homemade cake. My favourite part of the job is spending time with residents and chatting about their day.
I started working here in 2008. I am responsible for the day-to-day operation of the kitchen and dining room, including training, ordering, and menu planning. I like to find out residents' likes and dislikes.
After lunch, you will find me chatting to residents and visitors to get their feedback about the food and service we deliver.
Individual nutrition and dietary needs are especially important to me and I take great pride in knowing that the food we serve helps to improve residents' well-being here at Alice Grange.
Hello, my name is Konrad and I am a senior carer at Alice Grange care home.
Hello, my name is Kirsty and I am an Activities Coordinator here at Alice Grange.
Before I joined the Activities team two years ago I was working here as a Carer and so I know the residents really well.
I am known as the home's joy spreader as I am always happy and love making sure that the residents are happy too. The best part of my job is learning from the residents and helping them to connect with their loved ones.
