Hi, my name is Jo Cox and I am very pleased to have been appointed as General Manager of Edgbaston Beaumont. Welcome to our website!
It is a beautiful, recently refurbished home with a lovely team of staff all dedicated to giving our residents the best lives possible. I was born in Stourbridge in the West Midlands, so my heart is here.
My whole career has been spent in a health care setting, starting 28 years ago as a Care Assistant and working my way up to manage care homes.
Supporting elder adults is something I am passionate about and my entire focus is ensuring our residents live full and rewarding lives with the highest possible standards of care and support.
I look forward to welcoming you to our home!
Manjinder joined Barchester Healthcare as a Nurse in April 2014 and in September was promoted to the position of Deputy Manager at Edgbaston Beaumont. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge in nursing homes. Caring, warm and friendly, Manjinder prides herself on leading her team to deliver the highest standard of care, ensuring our person-centred approach to care is maintained, and making sure residents enjoy each and every day at our home, always considering each individuals choices and preferences.
I started working here at Edgbaston over 10 years ago as the weekend chef and immediately decided that this was the place I wanted to settle, and was promoted to Head Chef over 5 years ago. I am responsible for the day-to-day operation of the kitchen and restaurant, including training, ordering and menu planning, and finding out about residents' likes and dislikes. Often, after lunch, you will find me chatting to residents and visitors to get some feedback about the food and services we deliver. Individual nutrition and dietary needs are very important to me and I take great pride in knowing that the food we serve helps to improve residents' well-being here at the home. I also love catering for parties and special occasions.
I have been the Second Chef at Edgbaston Beaumont since 2006, joining the Barchester family after completing my training at the Barchester Chef Academy when I arrived from South Africa.
I am fondly known at Edgbaston as 'The Mary Berry of the Beaumont'. My passion and unique talent for baking delicious cakes and sweets for my residents every day is passed down from my grandmother, who was affectionately known as 'Mary Sweet', and I know each and every day she looks down on me with a big smile, knowing that I am using her baking recipes to provide those who live here with a selection of homemade treats every day.
Hi, my name is Amie, and I have worked at Edgbaston Beaumont as a Care Assistant since 2011. I love my job and enjoy each and every moment that I get to spend with residents, building up fantastic relationships with them and their family and their loved ones. Barchester offers us the chance to undergo advanced training, which would allow us to provide better support to residents.
Sean has been working for Edgbaston Beaumont for 6 years. He began working for the home as a Maintenance Assistant and has recently been promoted to Head of Maintenance. Sean is responsible for general maintenance around the home, driving the mini bus and taking care of safety throughout the home. Sean enjoys talking to the residents and is very passionate about his work.
Hi, my name is Sarah. I am happy and excited to be the Activities Coordinator at Edgbaston Beaumont. I pride myself on delivering meaningful and life enhancing activities. I achieve this by spending quality one to one time with our current and future residents to capture a life history and ascertain what form of activity would best suit their individual interests and abilities. The advantage of person centred activity planning is to ensure that life within Edgbaston Beaumont is made of fun and enrichment both in social groups and 1 to 1 time.
