Hi, my name is Gail and I am the General Manager here at Bloomfield. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.
I have been a registered nurse for over 30 years, completing my nurse training at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. I have previous experience working mainly with the elderly and I was a palliative care sister in the community.
Previously, I have worked at Bupa and Four Seasons, before joining Barchester. I am passionate about ensuring that the people we care for are happy, safe and living their life to the full.
I began my career in the health and social care sector in 2012 as a Healthcare Assistant in a busy Bristol hospital. Whilst working there, I advanced to become a band 5 registered adult nurse. I am extremely proud of all my achievements and getting my current role within Barchester; they are the provider I knew would enable me to achieve even more.
I started my journey with Barchester in 2002 as a nurse, before being promoted to Unit Manager on our Memory Lane community.
I am passionate about working with the elderly and I am focused on providing the best possible care for them. I do believe that my team is caring and provides the best possible person-centred care to our residents.
Hi, my name is Julia, and I am a Unit Manager here at Bloomfield.
Hi, I'm Lisa, I've been at Bloomfield for over 12 years in various roles, starting as a Hostess. I am currently working within the activities team, which I love. I really enjoy making the residents smile. maintaining their independence and generally brightening their day with the fun activities we do.
Hi I'm Jane, I have been here at Bloomfield for over 10 years working in different roles. I am currently working within the activities team, with a focus on community engagement and welcoming new residents to our home. Its a role i really enjoy as I love speaking to people and showcasing what we offer here at Bloomfield. I am also the homes enquiry champion. So whenever you call you will always receive a warm welcome. In my spare time, I really enjoy visiting the theatre, going for long walks and spending time with my beautiful granddaughters.
I began my catering career at Bloomfield in January 2011, when I held the post of kitchen assistant, as time passed my love of cooking grew and I found myself experimenting with menu's as a second chef, a post I held for seven years before being promoted to head chef this year. I pride myself on the quality, taste and the presentation of my dishes for residents to enjoy.
I have been at Bloomfield since 1990/ I have been in the care for even longer, and I find it very rewarding. I like to ensure that all residents are cared for as if they were my own family. I think it is important that they feel well-supported and as at home as possible.
I first started at Bloomfield in 2005 as a weekend Receptionist. By 2007, I was a Senior Carer. In 2016, I was given an opportunity in a more senior role within a different care company. After 6 months there, I realised that I wanted to be in a more hands-on role, and was lucky enough to be taken on by Bloomfield again. I find working at Bloomfield to be very rewarding, and I am open to new challenges each day.
I have worked for Barchester at Bloomfield Care Centre for over 2 years now. I really enjoy my role. I am always happy to take on new challenges and embrace them all.I love spending time with all the residents and hearing their stories.
I have worked at Bloomfield Care Centre for 8 years now. I love my role and the team I work with. Before joining the team here i supported people in their own homes. I feel I have lots of experience in both fields. The most rewarding thing is making sure people are at ease and comfortable in their surroundings.
I started my career with Barchester in Oct 2020. Previously to this i worked in retail for a large clothes store. I currently work on our Memory Lane community supporting people living with dementia. I find this aspect of care really rewarding. I enjoy being part of a great team too.
I have worked at Bloomfield since 2020. Previous to this i was a carer out in the community. Making people smile is the reason I do what i do and i just love it.
