Hi, my name is Carolyn, and I am the General Manager here at Edgbaston. Welcome to our website!
I have been working within the care sector since 2009. I started my career as a healthcare assistant on an intensive care unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Here I found my love for nursing and took the leap back into the education system, where I attended university and gained my BSC Hons Nursing Degree.
I have worked in various nursing fields, which is where I discovered my love for caring for older adults, and I have acquired tremendous knowledge and understanding of the care sector. I have gained valuable insight into both the challenges and the rewards of delivering high standards of quality and person-centred care.
My Barchester journey started as a Registered Nurse within a nursing home setting caring for older adults with dementia and complex care needs. I was then promoted to Clinical Development Nurse, where I was responsible for looking after 10 Barchester homes, ensuring high standards of care and staff development were being delivered, maintaining the best possible experience for our residents.
I began my transition through the General Manager pathway as acting GM in a 30-bedded nursing home. It was such a positive experience and I enjoyed how my vision and values could be translated throughout the rest of the team and positively influence the care provided; and so I was honoured to be able to become the registered manager here at Edgbaston Beaumont.
As General Manger, my aim is to ensure that my team continue to deliver a high standard of person-centred care to our residents, ensuring they are at the heart of everything we do!
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.
