Hello, my name is Octavian, and I am the General Manager here at Magnolia Court. Welcome to our website!
I joined Barchester in January 2015 after completing my university degree in nursing. As a Registered Nurse and General Manager, I am committed to delivering the very highest standard of care to all my residents, alongside my highly qualified team at Magnolia Court.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to meet new people in an environment that is familiar to me, and to make a positive impact and difference to those residents, staff and relatives who I come in contact with.
Magnolia Court is a great community filled with loving care, happiness and laughter.
Virgil joined Magnolia Court in 2020 as Deputy Clinical Manager and has a vast experience in nursing care gained during his various positions held in Emergency Services, Care Home sector and GP practice. Virgil said: 'I love spending my time with all the Residents, and it brings me comfort knowing that they're all safe, comfortable and happy. I am happy to be part of this wonderful team at Magnolia Court.'

My name is Jocelyn and I am a Unit Lead here at Magnolia. Before I joined the home, I worked as a nurse and Unit Lead in another Barchester home, where I was awarded Employee of the Month for leading an enhanced dementia care pilot.
I am originally from the Philippines and worked as a qualified nurse in Saudi Arabia for 8 years before coming to UK in 2006.
I first joined Barchester in 2011, starting as a Carer and then moving into an administration role, just after finishing my Diploma in Accounting and Level 3 Diploma in Business & Administration. I am passionate about my job and extremely happy to be a part of the Magnolia family.
I have been working as an Activities Coordinator in care homes since 2002, starting my career at Four Seasons, then joining Barchester in 2014. I was awarded a Great British Care Award in 2013 and was a finalist at the National Care Awards in the same year, as well as being a finalist in the 2014 Great British Care Awards. I have a natural love for the elderly and enjoy every single day in their company.
I've been the Head Chef at Magnolia Court since 2013. I qualified as a chef in 2010. I studied professional cookery levels 1-4 (City & GUILDS) and I have over 10 years’ experience as a chef and I’m really happy to be part of this wonderful team.
