Gail Donaldson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Gail, and I am the General Manager here at Bedewell Grange. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what we have to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

I am a qualified nurse with 13 years’ experience working across lots of sectors of care, most recently as the Regional Clinical Development Nurse.

I am passionate about safe, effective, holistic, resident-centered care. I am a certified Quality Improvement Lead and believe in empowering our front line clinical community to make a difference to our residents' lives. Myself and the team prioritize high standards to ensure that our residents are the heart of all that we do, and consider it a privilege to care for our residents in this journey of their lives.

Sarah Rice

Head Chef

Hello, my name is Sarah Rice and I joined Barchester in 2019. I started as a bank chef, and this is my first time working in the care sector, but I’m finding it very enjoyable.

Tony Daglish

Maintenance Manager

I have been with Barchester since 2015 as the Maintenance Manager here at Bedewell Grange. My background is in IT hardware, which is probably why I enjoy fixing electronic items. I also love the variety that this role brings, from changing a light bulb to re-decorating one of the lovely rooms here at the home.

Ebony Golightly

Care Assistant

I have worked for Barchester since March 2017. I love my role as a carer; every day is different and the residents are so thankful for the support. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere other than Bedewell Grange. Anyone looking for a role in care should join our team!


Activities Coordinator

Hi, my name is Charlotte and I am the activities coordinator here at Bedewell Grange.  I joined the team in November 2020 and bring a wealth of experience to the role and I look forward to providing our residents with meaningful activities each day. 

We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities, this is why we make each residents’ life story paramount. 

 We all know that keeping active is important so I tailor this into everyday life providing residents with keep fit classes and dancing. I believe essential to our extensive activities calendar is the strong relationships of trust we tend to build with residents and their families and friends.
