Hi, my name is Davina and I am the General Manager here at Ottley House. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.
I started my career in care at Ottley House more than twenty years ago. At that time I worked in several areas which were a carer, senior carer and activities organiser. I was encouraged to pursue my passion and to follow my dream which was to become a Registered Nurse.
I thoroughly enjoyed my nurse training and was lucky enough to work along side some amazing people. On successful completion of my nurse training I decided to focus on orthopaedic nursing. I have previously worked as a ward Sister. This gave me the opportunity to develop my clinical and managerial skills where I was able to develop and guide a team of nurses. I specialised in nursing people with spinal injuries and people requiring hip and knee surgery.
I felt that my time on the ward was a great experience and gave me the correct skill sets to achieve my real passion which was to work within a nursing home. The opportunity arose to return to Ottley House Care Home as the Deputy Manager. This was an opportunity that I just had to take. I have been in post at Ottley House now since May 2015 as the Deputy Manager and was promoted to General Manager in 2017. I take great pride in my position and aim to deliver high quality nursing care to the residents who live at the home.
I started my Barchester career at Ottley in 2015 as a registered nurse; I was then promoted to head of unit and, more recently, to deputy manager.
I am here to offer guidance to our team of nurses, care practitioners and carers to ensure we deliver a high standard of care to those we support, whilst respecting their dignity and privacy within a warm, friendly environment.
I'm the Home Trainer at Ottley House.
I ensure that our staff are fully inducted and that all mandatory and legislative training remains up to date at all times.
I look after the administration and all financial aspects relating to the running of the home. My team and I are always on hand with a friendly welcome and offers of assistance!
Hi, I'm Cath, the Activities Coordinator here at Ottley House. My days are spent making sure that the residents in the home have an interesting and active social programme to enjoy each day. Residents individual preferences are considered all the time in a person centred approach and I welcome feedback from families too.
My role is to create well-balanced and nutritional meals using locally sourced ingredients to provide a dining experience to remember for all residents and family members to enjoy.
I have vast experience in maintenance and building work, and I am always happy to help with any odd jobs that need doing to keep the home looking good
