My name is Maxine and I am the General Manager here at Marriott House & Lodge. Welcome to our website!
I joined Barchester Healthcare and Marriott House and Lodge in March 2019. I commenced my nursing career in the Royal Air Force. I progressed from there to work within the commercial sector and the NHS as a Ward Manager.
I started working within care homes in 2011, starting as Clinical Manager and very quickly becoming a Home Manager, gaining a wealth of experience and knowledge within these roles.
I manage and I am very proud of my experienced team of staff within Marriott House and Lodge and I enjoy working with my team to ensure that all residents’ care and support needs are met in the highest possible way.
My name is Irene and I started work at Marriott House and Lodge in 1999 as a weekend Care Assistant. I have developed my skills and knowledge through the Barchester Training Academy, completing my NVQ 2, 3 and various training certificates.
This has enabled me to progress into my current role as one of the Deputy Managers at Marriott House and Lodge. I take pride in managing residents' day-to-day requirements and motivating the care team.
Quality of care is always my top priority, and my aim is to ensure that we are delivering the highest standard of care possible to those we support.
My name is Sarah and I have worked at Marriott House and Lodge for over 19 years in a variety of roles.
I began my Barchester journey as a Night Care Assistant in 2000. Through the completing of care qualifications, I progressed to Senior Care Assistant and, more recently, I have also adopted the responsibilities of a Care Practitioner as well.
I am also involved in activities within the home and I lead the Activities Team, a role that I have enjoyed for many years. I have completed many training courses through the Barchester Healthcare Training Academy, which have further enhanced my skills in a range of areas, including, care, activities and providing training. I now share my time between being a Care Practitioner and leading the Activities Team.
Leading the Activities Team means that I work with a group of staff and volunteers to provide activities for the residents that help to keep them active and stimulated. My duties include planning events for residents and their families, organizing day-to-day activities, arranging outings, and also offering residents that very crucial one-to-one time.
I work closely with local groups, meaning that Marriott House & Lodge remains a key part of the local community with regular visitors who offer support to families and friends.
I am very much involved in the ‘whole home approach’ in regards to the care we provide as a care home; my hands-on approach allows me to work closely with all members of the team and help them to develop their skills.
Dignity in care is a particular area that I am always keen to promote within the home and I believe that we can all enhance the lives of residents.
My name is Mark and I head up the maintenance team at Marriott House and Lodge. I ensure that the home is well-maintained and updated as required. I do at times work with external contractors to ensure all equipment and the home itself is safe and fit for purpose. I enjoy chatting to the residents as I go around the home, and it’s a lovely part of my job to build relationships with not only my colleagues, but with the residents in their home.
My Name is Lynn and I am responsible for the laundry and high standard of cleanliness of the home. I have worked at the Marriott’s for nearly 17 years and I have completed various training courses through Barchester Healthcare including my NVQ level 2 in Hospitality.
I lead the housekeeping team and as a team we take pride in providing a clean and home-like environment for all residents in communal areas and their own room.
