Lisa Riddle

General Manager

Hello, I’m Lisa, the General Manager here at Latimer Court, Worcester - welcome to our home website.

I have been a registered nurse working within the NHS and private healthcare sector for the past 8 years. My passion for ‘person centred’ care encompasses both staff, and our residents; understanding the importance of empowering individuals to make the most of each and every day. I was fortunate to complete Dementia Care Mapping within Bradford University and I feel this is an essential element for the continued development and life enrichment of our residents, particularly those living with dementia in our care.

I am proud to be leading the excellent team here. My vision is for Latimer Court to be a vibrant home for our residents, providing exceptional care and a welcoming environment. We will make sure residents are happy, safe and cared for like family. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about me, or life within our beautiful home.

Tony Jeanes

Head Chef

Hi, I'm Tony the Head Chef here at Latimer Court. I have always loved cooking, I started my career at the age of 15 on a Youth Training Scheme. Mastering my skills over the years I have been in the Michelin Guide twice and had 2 AA rosettes on two separate occasions.

I love to get to know my clientele; their likes and dislikes. By working with the residents of Latimer Court we can provide a varied and exciting menu full of nutritious ingredients and flavours; maybe a few they’ve never tried before.

I've started to hold monthly cooking classes on the communities alongside the activities team whereby our residents can follow me in creating a dish of their choice, our ‘living kitchens’ are superb for this type of interactivity. We'd like to invite family members and the local community to join us, hopefully in the not too distant future.
