Hi, my name is Natalie, and I am the general manager here at Henford House. Welcome to our website!
I am a registered nurse and I have 10 years experience of working in nursing homes. I have worked for Barchester Healthcare since June 2017 and here at Henford House since October 2019.
I thoroughly enjoy my role, and love the family here at Henford. I am here not only to support residents and their families, but also to support our team here at Henford.
I am always around, so please do stop me and say hello. I would be proud to show you around our beautiful home.
Nicola and her housekeeping team are responsible for keeping the home in tip-top condition, to ensure the comfort and well-being of the residents. Nicola has been at Henford for over 21 years and says the best thing about her job is making a difference to the home, chatting to residents and she even loves ironingâ€¦..!
I have worked at Henford House for since 2015 as an Admin Assistant/Receptionist, and love the atmosphere here; residents always seem so happy in their surroundings.
I have been working at Henford House now for 10 years starting off as a domestic assistant, having also worked in the kitchen, laundry then as a carer. I have finally worked my way up to become the home administrator, which I feel very settled in. I am able to have the daily interaction with the residents at the same time as doing a job I love.
I joined Henford House in March 2014; after five and a half years of domiciliary care, this position became available at Henford and I decided that it would be great to do more of the fun things in life with residents! It is great here at the home; we get along so well and truly have some laughs. Residents have a wide range of activities to participate in each week, including armchair exercises, bingo sessions, singalongs, musical entertainment, pottery, manicures, celebrations and much more. It is very rewarding knowing that people are grateful for the work I've done when I go. Working here has also given me the opportunity to gain my Level 2 NAPA certificate.
I have worked at Henford since 2015 and I really enjoy my role here; I get to interact with residents on a daily basis and Henford is a friendly and homely place to work.
I joined Henford as a Kitchen Assistant and was pleased to be promoted to Head Chef when the opportunity arose.
I enjoy cooking and creating menus for residents, who all have differing tastes and diets. This always makes for some interesting meals! I encourage those we support to suggest menu ideas and options, which can result in some unique alternatives and combinations.
All our food is prepared from fresh in the kitchen. We welcome family and friends who are joining their loved ones for lunch or supper, and host a monthly Lunch Club for people in our community to come in and sample our food. We also promote a Don't Dine Alone initiative, where people who don't wish to eat alone can come in to enjoy some company and a delicious lunch.
I’ve worked at Henford since June 2015 as the head of our small maintenance team. We make sure that the home is an attractive and safe environment for all of our wonderful staff and residents.
