Rebecca Long

Senior General Manager

Hi, my name is Rebecca, and I am the Senior General manager here at Edgbaston. Welcome to our website!

I have worked within the care sector for over 25 years and have been a registered manager for 10 years. I have a vast array of experience working in care homes and supporting individuals living with mental health conditions.

I enjoy making a positive difference in people’s lives and I am very proud of being able to provide high-quality care for the residents living at Edgbaston, along with a dedicated and caring team of staff who always strive to make life at our home as happy and homely as possible.

I have an open-door policy and I always ensure that I do a daily walk around, making sure residents and staff are happy. There is a fantastic atmosphere within the home with lots of laughter to be heard, showing me that our residents are enjoying being here and loving every day!

Phil Davies

Head Chef

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.

Rosemary Hubble

Second Chef

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.

Administration Manager

Hello, I am Sarah have worked in administration for over 20 years for Housing Association's.  I am excited to be part of the team and work in an environment that I am passionate about and thoroughly enjoy.

Justine Langford

Deputy Manager

I’ve been a qualified nurse for 23 years, my move to elderly care was in 2019 when I made the move to a nursing home. I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it, and realised that this was where I wanted to be for the rest of my career.  Caring for the elderly can sometimes be challenging, but is incredibly fulfilling. I enjoy talking with residents, hearing about their lives and their families, and offering them support during the latter stages of their lives. Knowing I’ve made a difference to someone is very rewarding, and being able to use the clinical knowledge and experience that I’ve acquired during my career means I can care for my residents with confidence, and always to the best of my ability
