Catalin Danciu

Deputy Manager

Hi my name is Catalin and I am the Deputy Manager at Falmouth Court.

I am originally from Romania where I graduated from Generalist Nurse College as a Generalist Nurse and worked as a nurse in protection of children with disabilities. I have a passion for supporting care teams and have responsibility for overseeing the resident care at Falmouth Court. I’ve always been a very caring and empathic person and interested in how every person can be so unique. I am very passionate about high quality care using my clinical knowledge to develop carers I lead. I learned during my traveling the importance of contributing to people’s quality of life from residents to my colleagues including the difference quality care can make. I have also studied Theatre and Arts. Being passionate about the arts I feel lucky to hear and learn about our resident’s stories, which makes them who they are.  It’s a privilege to be part of their story.  As I like to say, every one of us is a book, and every person you meet is a chance to a better you. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our home.

Jonathan Moyle

Head Chef

A 49 year old Cornishman, born & bred who has worked in the hospitality industry for 33 years. Married to my beautiful wife and lucky to be dad to three wonderful children.

I started out as an apprentice at the tender age of 16 in an intimate  50  cover restaurant in Lostwithiel, where I was taught the skills required, including baking, butchery, desserts to name but a few.

Over the next 30 years I progressed into Hotel Kitchen Management, new start up restaurants and traditional Inn’s honing my skills using local Artisan businesses’ and forging long standing relationships with these suppliers, utilising the best ingredients the county can provide.

I was fortunate enough to become a Head Chef at the age of 22 and have since led and developed various teams throughout my career. There is no better achievement than that of seeing a young apprentice develop and grow into the next generation of Head Chef.

Sadly losing both my parents recently and then caring for my uncle who has now entered a care home setting, I witnessed first hand the importance of a quality food offering and the effect this had on him. This personal example spurred me on to pursue the next chapter of my working life and led me to employment at Falmouth Court as Head Chef, leading the professional team to produce the highest standards of food to our residents.
