Elaine Robson

Elaine Robson

General Manager

I have been a registered nurse for 36 years, working with older people in care homes and the community for 20 years. I was very fortunate at the start of my career to work in a very forward looking environment that was advocating person centred care. This is the way I have continued to care for residents.

I have worked for several companies, I moved to Atfield House in July 2012. I hope to finish my working career with Barchester Healthcare. I am fortunate to be managing a dedicated team some of whom have been in post since Atfield House opened in 1997.

On a personal level I have two children, three cats and have recently acquired a springer spaniel puppy called Ruby. Ruby will come to work with me. I unwind at weekends by going to the Stoop and cheering on Harlequins.

Carmen Bilbie

Deputy Manager

I started working in Atfield house in 2004 as a Carer, and was eventually promoted to General Nurse, Head of Unit and, finally, Deputy Manager. I consider Atfield to be one of the most welcoming and friendly homes. My role is to ensure that all residents receive the highest standard of care and always take into account personal wishes and requirements. I focus on delivering person-centred care to support residents in understanding the aging process, to maximize their independence, and create a safe, homely environment for everyone in the home. I offer support and guidance to all Nurses and Carers and work closely with external healthcare professionals.

When people ask me are you a nurse? I say "yes I am and very proud to be". I started my career at Barchester as a carer, and now I’m working as a qualified nurse, working and gaining experience in many different types of elderly health care. Working as a nurse gives me the opportunity to add light, warmth and comfort as much as possible,  to the residents' everyday life. I get so much joy from this and fulfilling their needs.
