Hello, my name is Sylvia, and I am the General Manager here at Oaklands. Welcome to our website!
I have worked in the care sector since 1995, when I commenced my career as a care assistant, and after completing my qualifications, quickly progressed to management roles from 2002.
During my career, I have worked in care home settings as a registered general manager, development manager, project manager and area manager.
I am extremely passionate about my work and enjoy working with older people, especially those living with dementia. I am a hands-on manager, promoting and expecting high standards of care for those we support.
Cristina is a registered nurse and joined Barchester in March 2004. She has worked for the company in a variety of different roles and, in October 2018, she was promoted from Senior Clinical Lead to Deputy Manager of Oaklands. Her role is diverse and she hopes to use the experience and knowledge she has gained to empower the team to deliver the high standards of care expected throughout Barchester.
Iskra has been with Barchester since June 2016 and is the Unit Manager on Marple Lane. Iskra feels very passionate about her work and the difference the home makes to the residents' difficult journey through dementia.
I have been working as a nurse for over 20 years. I have experience in ICU, mental health and elderly care. I am currently working in Willow Drive, which is a unit for younger physically disabled residents. I love my job and by brilliant team.
Ana-Maria joined Barchester in January 2016 and is currently the Elms Unit Manager. She qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 2015. Ana-Maria loves her job, as every day is different. She feels priviledge to work with such a dedicated team.
John provides a high standard of dining for all of our residents here at Oaklands, catering for all of their dietary requirements. Barchester prides itself on using only fresh ingredients and John enhances this by sourcing local and seasonal produce which is freshly prepared.
David joined Oaklands in May 2018 and is striving to deliver the right first time impression for all the residents, their families and friends by giving them the home and garden they deserve; one where they can feel relaxed and at home in.
Jester joined the company in July 2011 and worked his way up the ladder to the Head of Housekeeping by January 2016. Jester manages the housekeeping and laundry team here at Oaklands and, although he's only young, he is extremely ambitious and has managed to build up a strong team who have tremendous pride in their work.
Charles Cook has been the Gardener here at Hilton Park since 2009. He is a wildlife enthusiast and keen photographer. Charles created the wonderful wildlife pond in our main garden, which is a favourite place for residents and visitors. It is a beautiful, tranquil spot to rest and a lovely addition to our well-maintained garden.
Jane joined Oaklands as a receptionist in 2009. She began taking on Administrative roles within the Company and now holds the post of Administrator, leading a team of Administrative Assistants.
