Xin Zhao

General Manager

Hello, my name is Xin and I am a registered general nurse with over 25 years' nursing experience. Welcome to our website!

I have spent over 10 years managing nursing homes. I moved from China to England in August 2003, along with my family and, throughout my career in England, I have worked in the private care sector, for the NHS and in charitable organisations.

I am looking forward to working with the amazing team at Badgeworth Court to ensure the home runs smoothly, so we can aim to meet the highest standards of care. I believe, with the support and willingness of the team, this will be possible.

Hannah Mulholland

Hannah Mulholland

Activities coordinator

Hannah organises a 24/7 planned programme of events every day, including evening and weekends, that are based on the residents' choices. 

Hannah goes above and beyond her duties to ensure that all residents at Badgeworth court experience a fulfilled and content life. She is determined that every one of the residents should be able to enjoy an outing, regardless of their care needs.

Hannah is naturally bubbly and enthusiatic about her role and the difference she and her colleagues are making to residents' lives. As a result, she has created a 'Whole Team' approach at the home, leading to a culture where they celebrate life.

In 2016, Hannah was named the National Winner for Activities Coordinator of the Year at the Barchester Care Awards.

Jacek Binienda

Head Chef

My name is Jacek and I have been the Head chef at Badgeworth Court since 2015. I have been with Barchester since 2004 working in West Sussex for 6 years and Somerset for 5 years until 2015 when I started in Badgeworth Court in Cheltenham.

For me food has been a very important part of my life and I am very passionate about delivering high standards and a high quality of service to my residents, relatives and visitors on a day to day basis.  My residents and their needs are always my highest priority in everything that I do. In our kitchen we cater for residents with many nutritional and dietary requirements and tailor our menus according to their needs.

Within 14 years of my Barchester career my highlights would be receiving a 5* rating from EHO from 2010 till present, being a finalist and runner up in the Barchester chef competition in 2010, Barchester best smoothie competition winner in 2012, semi finalist at the Barchester care awards for Chef of the year category in 2013 and Nutritional week competition winner in 2014.
