Meet the Harton Grange Care Home Team
From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home are here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:
Hi, my name is Judith, and I am General Manager here at Harton Grange. Welcome to our website!
I have worked in the care industry since 2000. I have an NVQ Level 4 in Leadership & Management, and a Level 3 in End of Life Care. I am kind and compassionate and I focus on providing a safe, warm and caring environment for everyone I support.
I have extensive experience in building positive relationships and embedding the key principals of care in those I work alongside.
I came to Harton Grange in 2005 as a Care Assistant before being promoted to Senior Carer, and I am now the Deputy Manager. I assist our General Manager with the day-to-day running of our home.
My name is Claire, I have been working at Harton Grange since March 2019 and I absolutely love my job. The staff and residents have very much become a part of my extended family now! My Job as the home administrator is to ensure all the finances are up to date and all records are kept up to date. In my own time I enjoy going out with my husband and seeing my family.
Hi, my name is Marius, I am the activities coordinator here at Harton Grange. I joined Barchester's family in 2021, as I found their approach and standards on dementia very interesting. Since early 2022 I work for Barchester as both activities coordinator and care assistant. In 2018, I started my journey in health and social care as a care assistant and very soon after, I completed courses on dementia and activities (NAPA, level 2) and I worked as both activities coordinator and care assistant in Kent. I'm also an apprentice in health and social care. I've met some amazing people that have guided my understanding of dementia.
The most important thing for me is to see our residents achieving a meaningful raison d'etre, living as they like and to benefit from a range of activities starting from Namaste to reminiscing and spiritual needs (such as praying or listening to hymns), art and craft, armchair exercises, music therapy or finger nail pamper sessions.
I like to acknowledge that I am working as a part of a whole team, including the fantastic management, hospitality and maintenance departments, promoting a person centred approach for each resident and we are glad to know each persons preferences and abilities in order to plan how the day will look with them. One way we are able to do this is through our residents' and family' meetings where we try to let everyone have their say about the way they want to live and the activities they take part in.
Hi, my name is Joy, and I am the Head Chef here at Harton Grange. I was awarded the national 'Hospitality Champion of the Year' at the 2016 Barchester Care Awards.
I have worked in care since 2005, joining Harton Grange in early 2020, and I am enjoying the pleasure of working with a dedicated team that give the best care they can.
I currently work part time, as I have two children, aged 12 and 5. I intend to progress and continue my career, as I have been made very welcome at Harton Grange.
Outside of work, I like to relax and spend time with my family and friends.
