Jessica Salway

General Manager

My name is Jessica and I am the General Manager here at Rothsay Grange.

I am a registered mental health nurse and have varied experience within mental health settings. Before I qualified, I worked within an elderly care environment and have returned, as it is something I have always enjoyed.

My aim is to create a safe and homely setting for all residents within the home and to promote high quality care.

Irene Holmes

Activities Coordinator

I joined Rothsay Grange in July 2013 as a Carer, and worked my way up to the role of Senior Carer. I then decided to join the activities team in October 2015, where I get the pleasure of seeing residents enjoy the activities I provide for them.

Siska Redman FH, MTA

Music Therapist

I am the Music Therapist here at Rothsay Grange and West Abbey Care Home.

After graduating from the prestigious, four-year Heidelberg Music Therapy course, I worked in Germany, Switzerland and Canada before settling down with my family in Somerset.

I bring excellence from leading European clinics for neurology and psychosomatics, in addition to a wealth of knowledge on special education.

I am passionate about delivering music therapy, which is fun and empowering. I seek to open up a creative “headspace” for Barchester residents and staff, and focus on creating and encouraging an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. Through music, I strive to increase the quality of life in the homes where I work.

I also supervise postgraduate students studying music therapy in the UK who are on placement. Residents enjoy the variety of musicianship the volunteers bring and share.
