Hi, my name is Catherine and I am the Acting General Manager here at Prestbury. Welcome to our website!
I am a dually qualified Nurse – both RGN and RMN. I am qualified to teach adults and I have a Masters degree in Business.
The care of older people is my chosen area of nursing and I have been working in the independent sector since I first qualified.
I am passionate about ensuring that the quality of life is as good as we can possibly make it for those we support and that our staff are appreciated for their devotion.
I believe that it is important that we all respect each other – both the residents we care for and our colleagues. We should proceed in an honest and fair way, we should demonstrate our responsibility to deliver excellent care and customer service and it is vital that we approach each day feeling valued, trusted and motivated.
Fun and laughter is an important ingredient of each day for all those who live and work in our home.
I am an RGN and hold a degree in social care, and my chosen area in the field of nursing is the care of older people.
My journey at Prestbury Beaumont started in 2002, when I worked as a Care Assistant. I then became a Nurse and was eventually promoted to Head of Care and finally Deputy Manager.
My determination to ensure that the quality of care is of the highest standard has driven me to always find ways to further myself in my career in order to be in a position in which I can make a difference to the lives of those I support.
Accordingly, I feel very passionate and responsible for the standard of care that we provide here at Prestbury Beaumont. It is our job to ensure that residents receive the highest level of support whilst feeling valued, understood and respected at all times.
David has been our Activities Coordinator for over five years. He is involved in the creation and coordination of all of our activities and events designed for residents, as well as organising shopping trips and other excursions out into the community and local area. Married with three grown-up kids, he now enjoys his spare time painting the beautiful countryside locally.
We all know that keeping active is important. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities.
Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.
Nicky has been working at Prestbury Beaumont for 22 years and as Head Chef she provides excellent fresh food and hospitality to all of our residents. She is married and has a 16 year old daughter. In her spare time Nicky loves socialising with family and friends and walking her dog, a border collie called Skye.
I joined Prestbury Beaumont in February 2020 as gardener and maintenance assistant. Maintenance is paramount when it comes to our residents, relatives and colleagues, and my role is to keep the home environment to the highest standards possible, ultimately creating a safe and warm place for our residents to live and my colleagues to work. I also manage and deal with contractors, keeping records up-to-date for our audits.
I enjoying working in the housekeeping team, talking to residents and making sure their rooms are clean and tidy. I want to help residents remain as independent as possible. I work hard to ensure that the home maintains Barchester’s high standards and that they work to create a relaxed, personal atmosphere for residents, relatives and staff.
Pat has been working at Prestbury Beaumont for 10 years as the Head of Housekeeping, and for the last seven years she has been helping as a carer as she has a NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care. Pat is a very bubbly person who loves being with her five nieces and nephews in her spare time and also enjoys playing with her cat Harrie.
