Kerry Hill

General Manager

Hello, my name is Kerry and I am the General Manager here at Latimer Court. Welcome to our website!

I achieved a first class honours degree at the University of Worcester and had 23 years of nursing experience in different adult care settings before joining Barchester in 2017.  I am an experienced care home manager and love leading a skilled team to outstanding levels of care and commitment for my residents.

My particular passion lies within creative approaches to the care of those living with dementia. My aim is for everyone living with us to maintain their interests for as long as possible and to support our residents individually to live their best lives whatever their challenges. Latimer Court is the hub of the Worcester community and enjoys amazing support from our families, neighbours and friends throughout the city and I am proud to be part of those relationships and to lead it into the future.

I joined the Latimer Court team in December 2017 as a Admin Assistant, I quickly found Barchester to be a great platform for learning, being trained in all aspects of ‘home life’ from enquiry handling and show rounds to payroll and recruitment. I found the financial side of great interest and took the opportunity for promotion to Home Finance Administrator in November 2019. I enjoy meeting new residents and liaising with their families, working hard to ensure they are kept informed on their loved ones stay whilst at Latimer Court.

Senior Carer

Tracy Loucas

Senior Carer

I joined Latimer Court as a Senior Carer in 2015. I truly love caring for the residents I support; the smile on their faces makes my day.

Activities Coordinator

Amber Wilson

Activities Coordinator

Hi, my name is Amber and I'm the Activities Coordinator for Latimer Court care home. I've worked at Barchester since November 2018, initially joining as a receptionist. My passion is to provide person centred activities that simulate life enrichment. Residing in a care home doesn't mean you can't continue to do the things you have always enjoyed. I spend time with each resident to ascertain the type of activities that suit their particular interests and abilities. 

I believe 'life is for living' and, along with my colleagues; fellow activities coordinators and the care teams from each community, we have created a full schedule of daily activities which include; Knit & Natter, Music and Movement, Pottering and Planting (inside and out), Flower arranging, quizzes, getting creative with textiles and paints.

We also have a fortnightly Gentleman’s club and Ladies pampering session. I'm keen on extending our current community engagements too, linking with local schools, church groups and entertainers to ensure life at Latimer is fulfilling and fun!

New ideas and interactions are always welcome, please feel free to email me at any time LatimerCourt.Activities@barchester.com

Hostess

Danielle Crawford

Hostess

My name is Danielle and I started at Latimer Court in August 2018. My role is hostess across all communities. I work with our chef and kitchen staff to ensure our wide range of nutritious meals are served direct to table or room; as preferred throughout the day. Meal times are a very important factor in promoting the health and wellbeing of residents, to stimulate their minds and keep them active. My main mission is to ensure everyone enjoys the dining experience, a meeting place where they can chat and socialise whilst breaking bread.

Our dining rooms include a ‘living kitchen’ meaning residents can prepare their own snacks throughout the day, I am always on hand to assist. We have regular baking sessions whereby I will work alongside our activities team to encourage our residents to get involved promoting independence and a sense of achievement in whatever they have baked.
