Jane Ritchie

General Manager

Hi, my name is Jane and I am the General Manager here at Middletown Grange. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website!

I am privileged to be part of Barchester Healthcare and particularly excited to be leading the team at Middletown Grange Care Home. Prior to joining Barchester, I worked in the elderly care sector for nearly 20 years and have been a qualified Nurse since 2006.

I am the third person in my family to become a Nurse and have always loved working in this field. I have spent my whole career in a nursing home setting, making my way up from a cleaner to a care assistant to a nurse, and then eventually moving to management.

My goal in this field is to ensure that all residents in our care feel safe, valued and loved and part of our own family. I enjoy working with great people and being part of a team that can make such a positive difference to the lives of those we support.

I have been working for Barchester for over 10 years, at both Middletown Grange and at another Barchester Home. I am a specialist in dementia care and run the Memory Lane unit here at Middletown Grange. My motto for my role is to "always put myself in both the resident's and family's shoes." Seeing residents living a happy and fulfilled life is all I need for job satisfaction.

Jag Aguinaldo

Care Practitioner

I started here at Middletown Grange as a Care Assistant in 2015, moving on to become a Senior carer, a Mentoring Lead and, most recently, a Care Practitioner, after finishing my training course, which allows me to lead as a nurse on the floor.

This training has meant taking on a lot more responsibility, but I thrive off it, finding it more of a challenge and a lot of fun as well. Leading a team that I have been a part for so long means we work well together and have a supportive and efficient environment, which is amazing.

Becky and Reji

Admin Team

Becky started working for Barchester 18 months ago as a receptionist, she soon discovered that being on the front desk is a very different thing in a care home then to anywhere else. She is always there to comfort residents, support staff and to reassure family’s and visitors and truly is the face of Middletown grange.

Alongside Becky is Reji, who has worked in the care industry for 11 years, one of which being an activities coordinator. Reji has recently joined us at Middletown grange but hit the ground running and loves working in the team.

Simon Butler

Maintenance Manager

I have worked with Barchester for 9 years here at Middletown Grange but have had a varied role throughout. Starting as an assistant to the previous maintenance manager I then helped in housekeeping then as a kitchen assistant and am now the maintenance manager so it’s come full circle really. I find it rather new being my own department as up to now I was always within a team but it’s challenging me in new ways and I have a lot of fun with the other members of staff that I have known for years.

Joanna Thomas


At Middletown grange we have a regular visitor, our hairdresser Joanna Thomas (Jo to everyone in the home), who comes in every Wednesday to chat to our residents, staff and, most importantly, cut our residents hair. Jo values how much residents love having their hair done every week as it’s a social activity more than promoting their self-value for them. Jo is always seen making extra time to help just one more resident each week and is always happy to provide a perm service on a day other than Wednesday as she finds she is busier than ever. Jo has been here since 2016 so if very used to the specific needs a care home can bring and is more then used to the hustle and bustle.
