Jude Shibu

General Manager

Hi, my name is Jude and I am the General Manager here at Chacombe Park. Welcome to our website!

I have been an RGN since 1999. I lived in Saudi Arabia until 2008, which is when I moved to the UK. I completed my nursing studies at Northampton University and worked as a nurse in Banbury until 2011.

In 2011, I completed my NVQ Level 5 in Management and worked part-time as an assessor for nursing students wishing to join the NMC register.

Now I am with the Chacombe Park team and I am responsible for running this beautiful, purpose-built care home. My passion is to provide an outstanding service for those we support in a warm and pleasant environment.

I live locally and love being a part of this team. I am married and lucky to have such a kind and supportive husband. I also have 2 loving kids who make my life wonderful at home. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling with family and friends.

My favourite saying is: 'life is beautiful'.

Hannah Boscott

Activities Coordinator

I have worked here at Chacombe Park Care Home since 2013; I started at Chacombe as a care assistant followed by becoming a senior carer before taking on the role as Activities Co-coordinator. I love being part of the fun and entertainment that we have here at Chacombe. I strive to ensure all residents we support are involved with everyday life at Chacombe one way or another by organising group and individual activities.

We have a varied activity programme that is never fixed and if residents are wishing to do an alternative activity this is never an issue. There are regular entertainers, PAT dog, themed events/days such as beach days, cultural days as well as celebrating the big calendar events such as Guy Fawkes. We also have regular trips out on the Mini Bus, which include visiting places of interest, lunch trips/afternoon tea. Relatives, friends and family are encouraged to join the activities that we have going on around the home as often as they can.
