Lisa Riddle

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.

Care Practitioner

Liz Murray

My educational background stems from social politics, social work through tourism and hotel management.

When I joined Latimer Court in 2015 I decided to combine both of my passions into one with the expectation to support our residents and fill their life with joy.

Working for Barchester allows me to be able to personalise our residents’ journey at the highest level. My job is to offer a variety of support both clinically and mentally.

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.

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.
