David Chimhini

General Manager

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Paternoster House - our friendly, vibrant home in Waltham Abbey, Essex.  My Name is David Chimhini and I am the General Manager here.

Paternoster House is located within five acres of land and surrounded by woods and an orchard on the edge of Waltham Abbey; an historic market town on the River Lea.

Paternoster House makes the most of pleasant grounds and a versatile interior to provide top quality general, end of life nursing, residential care as well as expert care for those living with dementia on our memory lane units.

As a general manager my role is to ensure that the high standards the organisation set are up-hold at all times and that residents live a happier, healthier and fulfilling life.

 I have worked in the care sector for over 15 years. Briefly worked as a nurse and moved into management in 2000. I have enjoyed a successful career to date and remain passionate about providing quality care to those under our care. Over the years I have gained MBA, MA HRM and CMgr respectively which have helped to increase my knowledge and ability to achieve desired results with a decisive leadership and management style.
