Karen Brickell

Head Chef

Hi, my name is Karen, and I am the Head Chef here at Kingfisher Lodge. I was one of the first chefs to work here at Kingfisher lodge when we first opened its doors back in 2012.

I am lucky enough to have also worked at other Barchester homes. I really enjoy not only the cooking but the life outside the kitchen in and around the home in the lounges and dining rooms, chatting and joining in singalongs and activities with all the staff.

I really do thrive from interaction with the residents and enjoy listening to suggestions and unusual things to cook. I will always surprise residents with a special meal and a birthday cake.

Charlene Morrison

Activities lead

Hello, My name is Charlene and I am the activity lead here at Kingfisher Lodge, I moved into the care sector in February 2022 after I decided I wanted a more rewarding career. 

As a Lifestyle Activities Coordinator, I will be spending time with each resident and their loved ones to build a detailed picture of each individual, so that each person’s stay with us is as meaningful as possible.

Thanks to the uniqueness of each resident, I am always enjoying new experiences in my role. My goal is to create an activities program that caters to the capabilities of residents, including, but not limited to, individual and group activity. 

I will be forging strong relationships within the community and developing a pool of talented individuals that can supplement our in-house team to bring out the best in those we support.

As we never stop growing and changing, it is important that we maintain an up-to-date Getting to Know Me booklet. With your help, the activities scheduled for your loved ones will be as relevant and enjoyable as possible.

I’m very much looking forward to working with all of you.
