Rebecca Travis

Senior General Manager

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

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Bedewell Grange has 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 have worked for the healthcare sector for approximately 10 years as a registered manager, in a wide variety of service. My back ground is nursing and I am a qualified learning disabilities nurse and I have had the opportunity to work alongside a wealth of experienced healthcare professionals.

I love my role and what I do. I feel we are honoured to work with you or your loved ones and look forward to getting to you know should you choose to come and stay at Bedewell Grange. I am lucky to be supported by an experienced team that demonstrate a nurturing warm and compassionate approach.

The homes core objective is to promote a quality ethos centred on England’s Health and social care standards.

Denise Buckley

Deputy Home Manager

My name is Denise, I am the Deputy Manager of Bedewell Grange care home. I joined Bedewell Grange in January 2022 and bring a wealth of experience to the role, having worked in the health care for over 10 years. My passion is to help people, which is why I have developed my career within this sector. My personality is very approachable, so if you have any concerns, or just need a general chit chat, come and say hello!

I support the delivery of the quality care and work closely with the General Manager - taking on leadership duties in their absence. I help with everything from ensuring care standards to motivating my team.

I am thoroughly enjoying this chapter in my career with Barchester, and looking forward to continuing to support our lovely residents and staff in the home.

Miranda Robertson

Home Administrator

Hi, my name is Miranda and I am the homes administrator here at Bedewell Grange. I have been working for Barchester since August 2021. I deal with all aspects of the administration of the home to ensure it runs smoothly, from invoicing, ordering, recruitment, setting up contracts, to manning reception; there's never a dull day!

I bring a wealth of administrative experience to the role having worked in construction for 30-years and I love this new role as every day is a school day.  Outside of work I live locally and it’s a privilege getting to know our residents, their backgrounds, humour and life experiences, they have many a tale to tell!

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.

Hi my name is Jilto. I am one of the senior carers at Bedewell Grange. I started my career with Barchester in August 2021, and so far have thoroughly enjoyed my job and every aspect of it.
