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:

Sujamole Mathai

General Manager

Hello, my name is Suja  and I am the general manager here at Hilton Park. Welcome to our website!

I qualified as a nurse over 25 years ago and worked as a nurse in both acute and community settings. During this time, I was able to lead and inspire a multidisciplinary team to provide outstanding personalized care and find new ways to enrich our residents' lives 

Caring for older people has always been very close to my heart, and myself and my team here at Hilton Park are committed to ensure that all of our residents receive the highest quality care at all times. 

It is hugely rewarding to be able to support our residents and help them to lead fully enriched lives in their new home. I cannot praise my team enough and it gives me great pleasure to help mentor and develop their nursing careers with Barchester too!

I have always believed in a very 'hands-on' approach to running a home, as I feel that it is the best way to build relationships and get to thoroughly know our residents even more.  

My door is always open to anyone, even if only for a cup of tea and a chat! If I can be of any help with your care enquiry please do not hesitate to contact our home and I will do my utmost to assist you in whatever way I can.

I look forward to welcoming you at Hilton Park very soon!

Hello I’m Rob, I have been a Chef for 26 years and have been fortunate to have worked in a wide varieties of kitchens throughout the years. I started cheffing when I was 16 years old as an apprentice in a lovely village pub, gradually progressing to manager -  I stayed for 14 years!

I decided to head into the care sector for a new challenge after working as a relief Chef in children’s Nurseries and Hospitals, joining the team here at Hilton Park as Head Chef 5 years ago.

Every week still presents myself and my team with new challenges but I would not want it any other way and always thoroughly enjoy preparing delicious food for all of our residents. 

We prepare our food freshly on the premises each day using only best ingredients and cater for a wide range of dietary requirements and needs.

I am always looking for feedback from residents and learning about their favourite foods.
