Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I am the General Manager here at Hilderstone. Welcome to our website!
I started my career as a Night Nurse, progressing to Clinical Lead, Deputy Manager and then the Manager’s position in October 2018 at a sister care home.
After completing my Adult Nursing Degree in 2015 I worked in Acute Medicine and Emergency and Trauma Nursing in the NHS before moving to Lawton Rise, another Barchester care home. My experience in these areas have proved essential in ensuring that the clinical aspect of our residents care is met. I have always felt very passionate about dementia care and during my time working in Acute Medicine in Manchester I became a Dementia Champion and the Dementia Lead for the Acute Medical Unit.
I am passionate about person-centered dementia and nursing care and feel that my approachable attitude and knowledge about the home and our residents has a positive impact on our team, relatives, health professionals and our residents care and well-being.
Hi my name is Andy and I’m the Head Chef here at Hilderstone Hall. I have worked in the catering industry for over 17 years and have learned a lot so much along the way. Taking these skills and focusing on nutrition and individual requirements will ensure meals are well presented and balanced to suit. I love making people happy with good wholesome food and look forward to making our residents meal times enjoyable.
Jackie is Head of Care in our Memory Lane Community and has directed her career as a carer towards caring for dementia residents making people's lives easier with her person centred care approach
Hi, my name is Tania Lane, I joined Barchester in 2016. I started as a housekeeper and worked my way up to the position of Head Housekeeper. I take great pride in my work, I am so happy when residents really like how their rooms look and feel. I also love to talk to the residents while I’m cleaning their rooms. I aim to help residents remain as independent as possible. I also especially enjoy facilitating new families and future residents' show arounds so that they can experience the home prior to move in.
Hi, my name is Claire and I joined Barchester in September 2019. I enjoy working with the housekeeping team. I like talking to residents and making sure their rooms are clean and tidy. I want to help residents remain as independent as possible. I work hard to ensure that the home maintains Barchester's high standards and that they work to create a relaxed, personal atmosphere for residents, relatives and staff.
“Hi, my name is Joanne and I joined the home in 2014. Within my role as a Hospitality Host I strive to create a stimulating environment for our residents so that we can give them the all-round care and support they deserve.
We want our homes to be warm and welcoming with interesting events and first-class hospitality. As a Hospitality Host, we have an important part to play in making sure that happens. In particular, we provide a friendly, engaging and helpful service in our dining room and bar areas. It’s a fulfilling role that will gives a real opportunity to enhance the lives of all our residents and one in which I enjoy!”
